Filling the Hall with clouds of smoke and noise, doom-metallers Sunn O))) head to the Barbican as part of Convergence 2017.
Taking heavy metal and boiling it down to its core components, Sunn O)))’s self-described ‘power ambient’ music eschews rhythm and melody to explore drone and texture. Heavily distorted guitars, throbbing subterranean bass and a swamp of feedback create a bewildering and entrancing live experience.
Icelandic singer and cellist Hildur Gudnadóttir opens the concert, blending elements of classical composition with elements drawn from an eclectic pool of experimental styles.
Produced by the Barbican in association with Convergence
