This unique double-bill, commissioned and produced by FutureEverything (with support from British Council and RNCM), features new work by three of the most exciting and compelling electronic artists working today – Memo Akten’s Simple Harmonic Motion for 16 Percussionists and Koreless & Emmanuel Biard’s The Well.
‘The Well’ is a newly commissioned performance by live visual artist Emmanuel Biard and electronic musician Koreless. Commissioned by FutureEverything with support from the British Council, this stunning new work features Koreless’ compositions rescored for Moscow’s acclaimed four piece Intrada Choir, alongside a laser mirror and new lighting structures designed by Biard. Baird is one of the foremost live visual artists working today, having produced Daedelus’ acclaimed ‘Archimedes’, as we as being commissioned by FutureEverything in 2014 to design and build ‘The Hall’ alongside Evian Christ – one of the standout performances at last year’s festival.
This multi-sensory performance invites the audience to question the interactions between the human voice and complex electronic pulses – using sound, light and custom engineering. ‘The Well’ premiered at FutureEverything Moscow in November 2014, and here the artists perform the thrilling new iteration for our Opening Gala.
