This promises to be a really exciting event for experimental and contemporary music fans – our first collaboration with internationally renowned, Sheffield based, label Another Timbre. Featuring the incredible Apartment House performing the latest piece by experimental legend Jim O’ Rourke (Sonic Youth).   

Apartment House was created by the cellist Anton Lukoszevieze in 1995, and under his direction it has become a venerable exponent of avant-garde and experimental music from around the world. Renowned for their extensive and dedicated performance schedule, and championing of new works, the ensemble has a rotating cast that has stayed at the forefront of radical musicianship. Apartment House were awarded a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for outstanding contribution to chamber music in 2012 and were Wigmore Hall’s Associate Ensemble for 2020. 

Jim O’ Rourke is a Tokyo-based American musician, composer and record producer famous for his range and depth of musical approaches (everything from singer-songwriter music, post-rock, ambient, noise music, to tape experiments), and his extensive work with artists ranging from Mats Gustafsson to Joanna Newsom. Of course – he is perhaps most famous for his tenure as a member of Sonic Youth from 1999 to 2005.

This special event will celebrate the recently released recording of his new string trio on Apartment House. 

‘Pure and rootless musicality’, The Times, ‘Stellar playing’, Art Forum,

‘Apartment House were impeccable.’ The Daily Telegraph.
