Marilyn by *pinkpooch*
Sound and Music presents Listen To This: De La Warhol, a special evening of experimental music in response to the Warhol is Here exhibition, performed by avant-garde outfit Apartment House and live artist and composer Simon Bookish.
This debut performance features selected works from Songs for Drella, a concept album by John Cale and Lou Reed, originally performed and recorded in 1989. The work was created in dedication to Andy Warhol who died two years previously.
Also forming part of the programme is Amnon Wolman's The Many Faces of Marilyn - Four Requiems, George Brecht's Candle Piece for Radios, This is why People O.D on Pills by Jennifer Walsh and works by other contemporary composers.
The brainchild of cellist Anton Lukoszevieze, Apartment House has been a venerable exponent of avant-garde and experimental music since 1995. The Apartment House group are a regular feature in the European music scene, premiering music by a variety of composers at all the major contemporary music festivals.
Leo Chadburn, a.k.a Simon Bookish is an experimental music-maker based in London. A classically-trained composer, producer, arranger, vocalist and live artist, Bookish has released three albums of transgressive, investigatory pop and electronic music and produces remixes and scores for the theatre, contemporary dance and visual art. Last year he presented a collaboration with visual artist Richard Grayson, The Golden Space City of God at the De La Warr Pavilion, to rapturous response.
