Producer, composer, sonic explorer and world traveller, Matthew Herbert brings his big band back to centre stage with a response to Brexit. His latest project – a typically ambitious collaborative journey and an extended farewell party – arrives at the Barbican in October, featuring singers, a choir and guest musicians from the UK and Europe.

The project will evolve and continue till 2019 and will feature an ever-expanding cast. Matthew Herbert says: “In an increasingly fractured and divided political climate where tolerance and creativity are under threat, it feels like an important time to assert the desire for our bit of the musical community in Britain to reach out in solidarity with some of our closest, but soon to be less accessible, friends and neighbours.”
