There Are No More Four Seasons

For those of you not into Vivaldi, we play an excerpt of the amazing take on the red priest's biggest hit by a visionary Swedish duo who are currently in NZ. Mattias Petersson and experimental violinist George Kentros deconstruct and reconstruct old pieces of music to make them relevant to modern times. There Are No More Four Seasons play the Pyramid Club on Thursday 29 September.

Watch Brian Eno's "The Ship" - A generative film

"An exploration of the music and themes from the new Brian Eno album 'The Ship', forming a journey through modern history to explore the relationship between events present and past. The viewer is invited to view this film and begin an internal discussion about how historical meaning is produced. Does the machine intelligence produce a point of view independent of its makers or its viewers? Or are we - human and machine - ultimately co-creating new and unexpected meanings?" (www.brian-eno.net)
