MIDORI TAKADA + JAN JELINEK
On 17 April 2018, Midori Takada will perform at London's iconic Union Chapel for the very first time. The enigmatic Japanese composer and percussionist saw a significant resurgence in 2017, with the reissue of both her groundbreaking 1982 solo album Through the Looking Glass, and collaboration with Masahiko Satoh, Lunar Cruise. Her body of work is at once lucid and dreamlike - variously labelled as ambient, minimal and mystical. Takada returns to London after a mind-blowing live performance at The Barbican's Transcender Festival in 2017, which received rave reviews from The Independent and elsewhere.
Support is from Jan Jelinek, an experimental producer who's defining 2001 album Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records is revered as one of the all-time great electronic records. Jen's live performances are a rare thing. The opportunity to watch these two artists together in the beautiful surroundings of The Union Chapel make this event one of the most exciting experimental concerts of the year in London. Don't sleep on it.
Margins Cafe will be serving hot homemade food (cash only) - all funds raised go to The Margins Project which works with people who face homelessness, isolation and crisis.
The bar is open before, during and after the show - all money raised goes to the maintenance and conservation of the building.
The venue is entirely seated, but as seating is unreserved it is always best to arrive early.
Presented by Krankbrother.
This is an 18+ event.
