Clark with the London Contemporary Orchestra

Influential electronic musician Clark performs his latest record Playground In A Lake alongside the London Contemporary Orchestra, join us live in the Hall or watch at home.

Clark’s latest record sees him creating an ethereal and atmospheric soundtrack for the post-apocalypse: eerie, quietly devastating lullabies fused with expansive string arrangements. Here he has abandoned programmed beats for the ambient contemporary-classical: an elegant, filmic and otherworldly soundscape of piano, strings and intense synths.

The album features collaborators including violinist Rakhi Singh, Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and cellist Oliver Coates, alongside string ensembles. This evening’s performance sees live orchestration from the London Contemporary Orchestra, playing work from Playground In A Lake and recent soundtrack albums.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Soundcrash
