Matthew Bourne & Michael England

Genre-bending pianist Matthew Bourne joins forces with graphic genius Michael England (Autechre, Demdike Stare) to combine analogue electronics, minimalism and video synthesis. Together they explore the resonant, spacey qualities of iconic audio and video synthesisers. The result is a beautifully atmospheric landscape of sound and image, taking audiences on a journey from Montauk, New York to the Yorkshire Moors.

Hot new act Tom Rogerson, known for playing in London instrumental noise-rock band Three Trapped Tigers, explores live and electronic music to create an evocative and seemingly natural sound that reflects on our modern landscape. Tom and Matt will perform a rare collaboration as part of his set. Catch Tom live before a very exciting release later this year!

In a change to how the show was originally advertised, please note that due to the audio-visual nature of the performance, Matthew Bourne and Michael England’s Moogmemory will now be a seated show. If you have any queries please contact the Box Office.
