Pierre Henry, Messe de Liverpool (The Liverpool Mas)
Join us at Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral as Bluecoat presents The Liverpool Mass (Messe de Liverpool) by Pierre Henry. The French musique concrète composer was commissioned to create this electronic mass for the opening of the Brutalist building in 1967 but did not complete it. Fifty years later it will be performed as a live mix by Henry’s sound design partner and engineer Thierry Balasse, a unique performance using 40 speakers designed especially for the circular space.
