Black String & Kathryn Tickell
““The audience holds their breath as instruments get tuned.””
““This was music fully of the 21st century, in all its global, postmodernist glory.” ”
““I first encountered Black String through World on 3 on BBC Radio 3. The first track I heard was so intense and compelling – vast soundscapes, full of strange noises – alien, yet full of humanity. The more I listened, the more I felt drawn in by the music, and a sense of connection started to grow. There were little flashes of communication between their instruments and mine, the strength of tradition that underpins my music and theirs. I can’t wait to hear what sort of music we might make together!””
K-Music 2017, London's Festival of Korean Music is back with 9 concerts including several collaborations with international artists. The festival opens with the remarkable Black String, joined by musician, composer and broadcaster Kathryn Tickell.
