Damon Albarn:The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows

May

26

Tuesday

Singer, songwriter and composer Damon Albarn's new project, inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, receives its UK premiere.

Iceland is a unique country, filled with an abundance of natural beauty; glaciers, volcanoes, thermal springs, mountains and stunning headlands, stretching across two continents; a land where tectonic plates meet.

This new piece from Albarn, a frequent visitor to Iceland for almost three decades, will see the musician perform his first solo work in over five years, with an ensemble of orchestra instrumentation, electronics, vocals and piano, as well as visuals by Icelandic filmmakers capturing the changing seasons and recordings of natural sounds and instruments.

The title of the piece is taken from a John Clare poem, Love and Memory. Albarn is a singer, songwriter, composer, producer and founder member of Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen.
