New Music Biennial with AFRODEUTSCHE
Sat 2 July 2022, 9pm
AFRODEUTSCHE is a British born Ghanaian/Russian/German artist, BAFTA-nominated composer, producer, and DJ based in Manchester. With a Friday night radio show on BBC 6 music, accolades from The Guardian & Dummy Mag, a release on the influential record label SKAM & a remix of Joep Beving on the legendary Deutsche Grammophon label, AFRODEUTSCHE is at the forefront of the contemporary electronic music scene.
The New Music Biennial is a free (ticketed) festival and will take place across two weekends; the 22 – 24 April in Coventry and 1 – 3 July at the Southbank Centre. This year will comprise 20 new pieces of music: ten brand new works selected from an open call and ten pre-existing New Music Biennial works from across the last 10 years to mark its launch back in 2012. With pieces from across all genres: from classical and chamber opera to jazz, folk and electronic, each work is no longer than 15 minutes in duration to create a pop-up, interactive way for audiences to discover new music by some of the most exciting composers and music creators in the UK today.
Our performances together are
- Sunday 24 April, 6:30pm – HMV Empire, Coventry
- Saturday 2 July, 9pm – Southbank Centre, London
Huge thank you for support from PRS Foundation and the Southbank Centre. The new works are presented in partnership with Coventry UK City of Culture, BBC Radio 3 and NMC Recordings with support from Arts Council of England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
