Musical Modernism: Will Gregory with the BBC Concert Orchestra & Special Guests + Matthew Bourne
Goldfrapp's Will Gregory curates a programme that responds and reacts to Kirchin's fascination with texture and sonic collage.
In a series of pieces specially devised for the occasion, St Etienne's Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs create Abstractions of Holderness, an audio-visual work inspired by Kirchin's 1970s residency in East Yorkshire. Sonic Youth's Jim O'Rourke responds to his favourite Kirchin piece, Integration, and Will Gregory explores the potential of the human voice.
Pianist and composer Matthew Bourne opens the concert with a highly individual take on Kirchin's world.
This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBc Radio 3's Hear and Now.
Part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 programme.
