Overview

Apollo music by Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno (arr. Woojun Lee aka Kayip), with music by Anna Meredith (arr. James Poke), and Scott Walker (arr. Audrey Riley), and the UK premiere of Kate Moore’s Magenta Magnetic.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings, Icebreaker perform their multi-media reworking of Brian Eno’s Apollo album alongside works from eclectic ground-breaking composers and footage from the space missions.

Featuring pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, film from Al Reinert’s documentary about the Apollo space missions, For All Mankind, and music by Brian Eno, Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, Icebreaker’s piece captures the excitement and awe of the time. Widely regarded as Eno’s most significant work, the music matches the beauty and tranquillity of the moon with the dizzying scale of the feat of engineering involved. Deep synth rumblings mimic the rocket launch whilst string harmonics add an eerie sense of anticipation.

The programme also features the British premiere of Kate Moore’s new work celebrating European space exploration, Magenta Magnetic, co-commissioned by Icebreaker and the European Space Agency with funds from Fonds Podiumkunsten.

The programme is completed by a new version of music by Anna Meredith from her debut album, and Icebreaker's exclusive version of Scott Walker's Epizootics, featuring Walker's recorded voice.
