Space AFRIKA Live
REICH Music For 18 Musicians
Micaela Haslam – Director (Reich)
Synergy Vocals (Reich)
Jack Sheen – Arranger (Space Afrika)
Steve Reich’s 1976 Music for 18 Musicians is ethereal, hypnotic and breathtakingly thrilling to watch live.
The lush, warm resonance of its crisscrossing harmonies is in stark contrast to the sterile sounds usually associated with minimalism and is a breakthrough piece for the genre.
Manchester Camerata are delighted to be pairing Music for 18 Musicians with a live audiovisual performance from Manchester’s very own Space Afrika. Space Afrika is a contemporary duo whose works have gained critical success from The Guardian and Pitchfork Media as well as recently topping Resident Advisors album of the year list. They describe their music as “Overlapping Moments” creating a dreamlike tapestry that depicts the duo’s Northern working-class Black British reality.
