|Welsh-born, California-based Brian Williams (aka Lustmord) brings his solo A/V show to London. First emerged as an associate of industrial outfit SPK in the early ‘80s, Williams subsequently embarked on a solo career which has seen him at the forefront of dark and daring ambient for over 30 years. |
His new album, The Word As Power (Blackest Ever Black) presents us with a desolate landscape populated by electronics, immense sub-bass and acoustic phenomena harnessed and arranged to stimulate feelings of dread, but also escape, renewal and rebirth.
Polish jazz pianist and composer Piotr Orzechowski (aka Pianohooligan) completes the double-bill. The 23-year-old has been the recipient of the first prize at the Montreux Jazz Solo Piano Competition and has collaborated with an eclectic list of artists including Krzysztof Penderecki and Adrian Utley from Portishead.
