Hobbs and Bryars at the London Contemporary Music Festival

Hobbs and Bryars will recreate parts of their album, Ensemble Music (Obscure 2), May 26, 2014, including:

  • Christopher Hobbs, Aran and McCrimmon Will Never Return
  • Gavin Bryars, 1,2,1-2-3-4

plus music by John White and a live improvisation by Maggie Nicols. This is a rare — nay, an unheard-of — recreation of Hobbs’ and Bryars’ pieces using antiquated instruments (reed organs, toy pianos) and (hopefully) live analogue electronics.


Really worth seeing just for these three pieces.
