Altered sound



In the first event of a new series, we explore music history’s most remarkable turning points whilst giving you the chance to turn your understanding on its head.

Starting with Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the most innovative and controversial figures of the 20th century, an hour-long performance of two seminal works is presented from the stage. Explore the foyer spaces and you can meet our players at the bar, catch a film about the composer, or try your hand at Mikrophonie I – Stockhausen’s piece for tamtam and microphones that makes perceptible those “objects usually beneath our notice”.

Open up a world of altered sound you never knew existed.
