KRAFTWERK UNCOVERED arr. J PETER SCHWALM : Following on from the critical success of their live and recorded interpretation of Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois “Apollo” and in collaboration with German composer J. Peter Schwalm (who has previously collaborated with Eno), Icebreaker have created their own unique orchestral interpretation of the works of Kraftwerk. Commissioned by The Arts Council, and with additional funding from the Goethe Institute, “Kraftwerk Uncovered” was unveiled on January 24th with two sold out multi media performances at London’s Science Museum IMAX Cinema. These were accompanied by a specially commissioned split screen film assembled by video installation artist Sophie Clements (www.sophieclements.com)and Toby Cornish drawing inspiration from the music of Kraftwerk and appropristely filmed in Germany’s industrial heartland – the Ruhr. Further multi-media performances of the music and film will be given at a series of regional dates in England and Ireland ( see above. These shows will also feature Icebreakers’ unique arrangements of modern composition with music by Barry Adamson (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds/Magazine) Michael Nyman, and Michael Gordon.
Icebreaker have secured funding from Sound and Music for their ‘Recycled’ project. Especially commissioned works written by emerging composers Missy Mazzoli, Matt Wright, Paul Whitty, Ed Bennett, and Roy Carroll will be written then performed for the first time live by the group at a series of live performances later in the year.
