Aurora Orchestra under Nicholas Collon, with Rex Lawson on pianola.
Aurora Orchestra's series of short, immersive concerts continues with an adventure into Paris of the 1920s, the crucible for George Antheil's astonishing 'Ballet mécanique'. It's a visceral rollercoaster for pianola, pianos and a barrage of percussion including aircraft propellers and electric bells.
(The third 'chapter' of The Rest is Noise' festival: Paris.)
