The London night, which aims to meld modern classical with club music, will take place at London's XOYO on April 26th.
The night started out back in January with, among other performances, a set from Optimo's J.D Twitch. Another Scottish artist, Alex Smoke, will be the DJ in focus on the evening of Thursday 26th April. In addition to his background in classical music, Smoke recently worked with the Scottish Ensemble on a new performance of a soundtrack for Glasgow Film Festival, and will look to connect the dots between contemporary club music and the sounds on display earlier in the evening. These will include a performance of Krysztof Penderecki's Threnody for 52 solo strings (24 violins, ten violas, ten cellos and eight double basses), which has recently been explored by both Radiohead's Johnny Greewood and Aphex Twin. There'll also be Gyorgy Ligeti's Lux Aeterna for 16 solo singers (you may know this one from 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Iannis Xenakis' Peaux for percussion sextet, which in total takes in 44 drums.
Tickets for Nonclassical are available to purchase from RA Tickets.
