1 Surrey Quays Road, SE16 7PJ London, United Kingdom
Experimental classical club night feat. 30-piece orchestra, live experimental electronics & Nonclassical DJs.

Printworks London, a stunning new music venue in south-east London, hosts a unique Nonclassical night of live music and DJ sets exploring the impact of computers and machines on new classical music.

Live acts include internationally acclaimed orchestra Southbank Sinfonia and Langham Research Centre, a collection of BBC Radio 3 producers united around a shared passion for obsolete analogue technology.

Rise of the Machines #2 showcases the world premiere of the first ever Concerto for Drum Machine & Orchestra, a work in five parts which places the drum machine centre stage as solo musical instrument.

// LINE-UP //

* Southbank Sinfonia: an orchestra of outstanding young professionals described by The Times as ‘a dashing ensemble who play with exhilarating fizz, exactness and stamina’.
* Conductor: Jessica Cottis
* Langham Research Centre — founded in 2003 by BBC Radio 3 producers — work with vintage equipment to perform 20th century classic electronic repertoire and original works.
* Nonclassical DJs, including Laurence Osborn


* Concerto for Drum Machine & Orchestra (2017) — world premiere
One movement composed by each of: Beni Giles, Laurence Osborn, Josephine Stephenson, Jo Thomas, Max de Wardener

* Nick Ryan & John Matthias: Cortical Songs (2008)
A work in four movements for string ensemble and solo violin in which the orchestra is partially controlled by the neural patterns of a tiny computer brain. The resultant work takes the orchestra into an ethereal sound world of lush strings juxtaposed with the skittering crackles of neural activity.

* Barry Guy: Mr Babbage is Coming to Dinner! (2015)
Inspired by Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine No2 — the first modern computer.

* Magnus Lindberg: Engine (1996)
The title of this piece is inspired by the computing language associated with using the Patchwork1 programme.
