MINIMALISM CHANGED MY LIFE: TONES, DRONES, AND ARPEGGIOS

PARAORCHESTRA WITH CHARLES HAZLEWOOD

Based on Charles Hazlewood’s acclaimed 2018 BBC4 programme, Tones Drones and ArpeggiosMinimalism Changed My Life explores work by some of the great composers of the genre who rebooted classical music in the 20th Century.

The subtle transformative inner politics of Minimalism and what it does with time and motion seep through like musical aromatherapy

**** The Arts Desk 

Key musical minimalist ingredients are blended with a visual narrative that brings the stories behind the genre to life – including Charles Hazlewood’s own journey into minimalism – firmly placing them in a global historical context; sexual liberation, economic instability and the existential threats of the Cold War and Cuba Missile Crisis.

Minimalism Changed My Life: Tones, Drones and Arpeggios is a truly unique opportunity to experience the last big idea in classical music, one that has rocked mainstream music and reverberated through the genres ever since.

Minimalism Changed My Life premiered at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre on Saturday 28th September, 7.30pm and played Bridgewater Hall, Manchester Wednesday 2nd October, 7.30pm
