Michael Gordon's 'Decasia' – a film by Bill Morrison.

Aurora Orchestra under Nicholas Collon performs the UK premiere of 'Decasia', widely regarded as one of the great cross-arts collaborations of the past decade. Constructed from severely decayed archival footage, Bill Morrison's hypnotic, stunningly beautiful film was cut to Michael Gordon's matching soundworld of decay, with a large amplified orchestra playing music that jmusic critic Alex Ross describes as 'wedding the hypnotic aura of minimalism to the detuned snarl of highbrow punk'.

(Note: at 6.15pm at Queen Elizabeth Hall, a pre concert event. Bill Morrison and Michael Gordon are joined by Gillian Moore CBE, Southbank Centre's Head of Classical Music, and award-winning musician Oliver Coates to discuss the premiere of Decasia and this year's Ether Festival.)
