100 DEMONS is Manchester Collective on the edge.
It’s also a show about live strings and electronics. We’re presenting three sets of wild new music – music that is probably very different to anything you might have heard before.
A lot of the material is brand new. In our first set, underground electronic artist Vessel presents a collection of live tracks from his latest album. The second set features our Music Director, Rakhi Singh, and special guest Oliver Coates. We’re thrilled to have Olly with us – he’s one of those rare ‘classical’ musicians who is constantly pushing the envelope, working at the cutting edge of the field.
The heart of show is 100 DEMONS, a commissioned work written for Manchester Collective by Daniel Elms. When we asked Dan about his piece, he told us stories about politics and the media, about fear and manipulation. 100 DEMONS comes from a very unusual place – we can’t wait for you to hear it.
