Metal presents a site-specific performance by legendary American composer Steve Reich of his 20th Century masterpiece Different Trains.
Taking place days before Reich celebrates his 80th Birthday, the piece will be performed as an open-air concert at Metal’s Liverpool home at Edge Hill station, the oldest active passenger railway station in the world.
For the first time in the composition’s prestigious 28-year history a film accompaniment has been permitted, in the form of a newly commissioned work from artist and filmmaker Bill Morrison.
The event will also feature a supporting presentation of Reich’s Electric Counterpoint, performed by Mats Bergström.
