Next month, Boiler Room is joining forces with Ninja Tune to stage a collaboration between the London Contemporary Orchestra and techno illusionist Actress AKA Darren J. Cunningham. In anticipation of the event, Cunningham describes how the project—which, among other things, translates code-generated satellite sounds into instrumental music—reconciles electronic and organic sound. The joint effort experiments with traditional frames of performance and notation, as well as spatiality, acoustics and architecture. Catch it live on February 10 at the Barbican, and re-read our conversation between Actress and Mika Vainio here.
