Stokey: We Need EU!
Thursday 12 November, 8 pm // Doors at 7:30 pm // £8.40

Ret Frem Ensemble brings the cutting edge of European music to Stoke Newington. In the 1970s, a composition: ‘Spectralism’ took the computer analysis of acoustic sounds as its starting point and produced some of the most imaginative and inspiring music of the late 20th century.
Forty years on and the international influence of trailblazing composers Gerard Grisey and Tristan Murail is still very much evident.

Songs of Loss and Healing
Thursday 14 November
8 pm // Doors open at 7:30 pm //

Douglas MacGregor’s epic project Songs of Loss and Healing saw the composer and guitar player create seven original pieces of guitar music for which he sought out a separate and specific non-studio location to record each piece traveling to England, Scotland and Wales to find places of meaning. These seven pieces, which appear somewhere in the gaps between classical, folk and experimental music, highlight MacGregor’s unique style and breath-taking guitar mastery.
