Mercury Prize-nominated Manchester-based acoustic-electronica trio GoGo Penguin pay tribute to Basil Kirchin, the pioneering film composer described by Brian Eno as “a founding father of ambient” in their own inimitable fashion. Drawing on a broad tapestry of influences from electronica, jazz and contemporary classical to the Northern industrial landscape, GoGo Penguin present As Above So Below a brand new composition commissioned by J-Night for Hull UK City Of Culture 2017 and part of the New Music Biennial.
GoGo Penguin said, “We’re delighted to be part of the Hull 2017 and are looking forward to throwing ourselves into our commission Abstractions of the Industrial North and using it as a launch pad for exploring the soundworld and legacy of the great Basil Kirchin”.
This 15-minute piece will be performed twice, with a short Q&A session with the composer between the performances.
