Brooklyn-based group S? Percussion embark on a concert tour of sacred spaces, including St Giles Cripplegate, as part of the Barbican’s contemporary music programme this autumn. In two concerts over two nights they will perform a multifaceted art, photography, film and original music soundscape piece entitled From Out a Darker Sea. Commissioned by East Durham Creates as part of Art Council England’s Creative People and Places programme, this immersive audio-visual performance is inspired by the context and history of East Durham, an area which has struggled to reinvent itself after the crushing loss of its mining industry. S? Percussion collaborated with film and photography collective Amber Films on the creation of a new work, Song for Billy, which was developed from Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen’s photographic series The Coal Coast and features as part of this performance.
