William Basinski set to bring Arcadia to Hackney in 2014

The composer will curate a series of performances at the St. John church in Hackney based on his Williamsburg performance space.

Modern composer William Basinski and Art Assembly will co-curate a series of music and live art events inspired by Arcadia, the experimental studio/performance space that Basinski founded in Williamsburg in 1989, at the St. John church in Hackney next year.

Taking place in March 2014 as part of St. John Sessions (who have previously hosted performances by Tim Hecker and Actress), the Arcadia series will invite Swans' frontman Michael Gira for a solo performance on March 12th, and a collaboration between minimalist composers Charlemagne Palestine and Rhys Chatham on March 20th. Basinski will be performing at both events.

To reflect the original Arcadia's commitment to nurturing new artists and supporting emerging practises, there will be call outs for young artists to perform support slots at each of the concerts.

More performances are to be announced in the future. For more information and tickets, head here.
