An evening of music that is tough to situate, literally. The Zone of Iklectik will play to host to both super absent, and super present entities in a programme of intentionally slippery performances. An evening to commune with sonic ghosts of the past, present and future. The RCM Experimental Music Ensemble present works by Alvin Lucier, and Mica Levi that defocus attention and weird the mundane. Anton Lukoszevieze’s Solo for Conductor, written for and performed by Jack Sheen refocuses attention on the maestro’s body in strange new ways. SanBonYa are a muscular new trio of Trombone (Alex Paxton), Amplified Violin (Chihiro Ono), and Synths (Neil Luck) tooled specifically to repel each across space. The Haunted Network Research Initiative (HNRI) curate a selection of videos that bind this soup.

SanBonYa / 三本矢 (the three arrows) are a muscular new trio of Trombone (Alex Paxton), Amplified Violin (Chihiro Ono), and Synths (Neil Luck) Formed in 2021, they play wild fanfares, calling across small rooms and vast spaces in weird and desperate languages. All 3 members are acclaimed composers and performers in their own rights, working internationally under various guises…
