Roundhouse to host series of one-off bespoke gigs as part of Summer installation. 15 June 2016

This August, Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, the annual season dedicated to introducing new audiences to innovative culture, returns for its fifth consecutive year with Curtain Call by internationally renowned artist, architect and designer Ron Arad.  Ron Arad’s 360° floor-to-ceiling installation is made up of 5,600 silicon rods suspended and filling the Roundhouse’s iconic main space. Alongside the installation the Roundhouse has announced seven unique music events, designed by an eclectic mix of artists to take place as one-off performances in and around the installation.   

The incredible, eclectic line-up includes: Ivor Novello-nominated DJ and musician Matthew Herbert bringing ‘Matthew Herbert presents NUDE’ with support from Lail Arad; critically-acclaimed, Mercury Music Prize nominated Eska, blending folk, choral, soul, electronica and psychedelia; the return of the BBC Proms to the Roundhouse with music by British composer David Sawyer; Brixton born underground grime artist Gaika; electronic-music iconoclast Dan Deacon and the London Contemporary Orchestra featuring world premieres of two new commissions by composers Mica Levi and CHAINES.
