‘One of the most innovative minds in modern British Music’  Pitchfork

In this late-night Lock-In, Aurora shines the spotlight on the vibrant, bold, and original music of Anna Meredith, one of the most distinctive voices in British music today. Featuring electronics, amplification, and visuals, the night celebrates Meredith’s irresistible, kaleidoscopic sound that shimmers through the worlds of contemporary classical, art pop, electronica and experimental rock. Expect an eclectic and intriguing set of music, where you’ll experience the bassoon as a ‘1980s guitar-god’, the dance mat as a percussive instrument, chamber ensemble music with live drawing, and two drum kits pulsating like a relentless techno track gone haywire.

Doors open – 9.15pm
Music begins – 9.30pm

This is a standing event with limited seating. If you need a seat on the night, please just ask a steward.
