Award-winning composer Jon Whitten presents an intimate chamber concert on Regents Canal, London

This is not music for chin stroking and sage nodding, not sonic experimentation rooted in the marks left on an old bus ticket by a dying spider. It’s a cinematic soundtrack to swim through, to drown in, to cry and laugh and soar to.

Our event on the 27th of October will feature a small ensemble of musicians (violin, viola, cello, guitar, hammer dulcimer and voice) and masterfully animated puppets.

These players come from every corner of the musical world; conservatoire classical, Balkan folk, jazz, glorious mongrels of no discernible lineage. What they share is a desire to build a world and drench you in it, to offer something that could be edifying, comforting, brutalising or beautiful but must be transformative.
