Matthew Bourne + Michael England
An evocative audiovisual journey
“Beautiful, brooding landscapes of thick impasto to translucent sunbursts; Dr Bob would be proud!” Graham Massey
Following the success of his 2015 Radioland tour, genre bending pianist
Matthew Bourne joins forces with graphic genius Michael England to perform his next project combining analogue electronics, minimalism and video synthesis.
Together they explore the resonant, spacey qualities of the legendary Moog Memorymoog and LZX video
synthesiser. The result is a beautifully atmospheric landscape of sound and image, taking audiences on a journey
from Montauk, New York to the Yorkshire Moors.
Using its distinctive analogue sound, Bourne has written a programme of evocative tracks crea
ted without the use of computers or sequencers. In collaboration with multi disciplinary artist Michael
England who has worked with the likes of Autechre, Demdike Stare and Bola together they will explore the literal and abstract in landscapes through a haunting marriage of controlled voltage.
