Pedro Maia (live AV)

A collaboration inspired by Janáček’s string quartet, Intimate Letters, with a memorised performance of the piece followed by Written in Fire, a contemporary response to this ground-breaking masterpiece created by violinist Rakhi Singh and pioneering electronic musician Vessel (Sebastian Gainsborough).

Live AV from Portugese director and video artist Pedro Maia.

‘The Janáček has a powerful urgency’ says Vessel ‘driven by an obsessive desire that gives it a punk-ish irreverence’.

‘A seamless and evocative mix of modern classical and Tri Angle-style sound design from Vessel and violinist Rakhi Singh.’ Resident Advisor
