Sonar-debuted collaboration to be repeated in the UK in November

Add your comment »

The collaboration of Norwegian avant-improv unit Supersilent and Ex-Led Zep man John Paul Jones might seem unlikely at first - but it makes perfect sense when you consider Jones’ long-term engagement with experimental music of many forms, from trying his hand at contemporary classical composition through to participating in John Cage happenings.

This collaboration - executed with no preparation or rehearsals, as with all of Supersilent’s performances - was debuted at Sonar festival in Barcelona earlier this month. The decision to take the show on the road suggests it must have been a success. Five dates are planned for the UK in November, with support coming from the Walkman-toting Aki Onda. Details below.

NOVEMBER
14th - Birmingham, Town Hall
15th - Glasgow, The Arches
16th - Manchester, RNCM
17th - Bristol, Arnolfini
18th - London, Village Underground
