[Modern Ritual] is a series of new performances exploring ideas of ritual through music and words, evoking real and fictional landscapes. The forthcoming edition at LSO St Luke’s, part of the Barbican’s contemporary music programme, features solo sets from acclaimed musicians Charles Hayward, Laura Cannell and Hoofus (André Bosman), new sound performance/talks from writer/researchers Jennifer Lucy Allan and Luke Turner, and a new collaboration between all of the artists and invited guests.
Charles Hayward is a pioneering drummer; he is a member of numerous groups and projects including This Heat, Camberwell Now, Monkey Puzzle trio, About Group, V for V, and Massacre with Bill Laswell and Fred Frith. Hayward last appeared at the Barbican in March 2017 in a project titled This Is Not This Heat alongside Charles Bullen, plus guest performers including Alexis Taylor, Jenny Moore, Thurston Moore and many more.
Laura Cannell is a performer and composer based in East Anglia, and is the curator of the [Modern Ritual] series. She has produced three critically acclaimed solo albums over the last three years including Simultaneous Flight Movement, Beneath Swooping Talons and Quick Sparrows Over the Black Earth – all through the independent record label Brawl. March 2016 saw Cannell’s debut solo performance at the Barbican appearing in support of Thurston Moore and Michael Gira.
Hoofus uses drifting oscillators, cryptic rhythm and tactile interaction between performer and machines. Also known as André Bosman, he also collaborates with Cannell in their experimental fiddle duo.
Luke Turner is a writer and editor based in London. In 2008 he co-founded The Quietus, an online magazine devoted to music, arts and popular culture. Amongst his current projects is a forthcoming book on urban forests, family, ritual, death and sexuality against the context of Western decline and environmental destruction.
Jennifer Lucy Allan is a writer and researcher working in physical archives, unearthing sensory material in the historical record. In addition to her PhD studies she is co-founder of the reissues record label Arc Light Editions.
