Icebreaker: Apollo

July

20

Saturday

On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings, Icebreaker perform their multi-media reworking of Brian Enos Apollo album alongside works from eclectic ground-breaking composers.

Featuring pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, film from Al Reinerts documentary about the Apollo space missions, For All Mankind, and music by Brian Eno, Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, Icebreakers piece captures the excitement and awe of the time. Widely regarded as Enos most significant work, the music matches the beauty and tranquillity of the moon with the dizzying scale of the feat of engineering involved. Deep synth rumblings mimic the rocket launch whilst string harmonics add an eerie sense of anticipation.

The programme is completed by new versions of tracks by Anna Meredith and electronic artist JLin and two Icebreaker classics - part 4 of Michael Gordon's Trance, and a rare outing for Gavin Bryars's The Archangel Trip.
