Room 2, South Gallery II, Bermondsey
In a collaboration between Christian Marclay and the London Sinfonietta, some of the world’s most renowned contemporary musicians have been invited to stage performances, including new compositions and live improvisation sessions. This Sunday the London Sinfonietta will be performing a newly commissioned piece by Thurston Moore.
Thurston Moore started his band Sonic Youth in 1980. He has worked collaboratively with Yoko Ono, Merce Cunningham, Cecil Taylor, Rhys Chatham, Lydia Lunch, John Zorn, Takehisa Kosugi and Glenn Branca. He has composed music for films by Olivier Assayas, Gus Van Sant, and Allison Anders. He presently records and tours both solo, with various ensembles and with his own band. His most recent recording, entitled The Best Day, was just released by Matador Records. Thurston currently resides in London.
