Avant-garde British composer and multi-disciplinary artist Klein presents her thrilling, inimitable live show.

Klein's latest album Harmattan, recently announced on the renowned classical label Pentatone, has been described as ‘a soundtrack of epic revolt against beginnings and ends’, expanding our idea of what classical music can be.

Live, these explorations are taken further – her impulse to playfully experiment and push boundaries arrives centre stage, inviting you into her unique sound universe. Adapted instruments, uncanny vocals and distorted sonic artifacts collide to create a dizzying tapestry of surreal experimental electronics.

Opening sets come from south-east London MC and lyricist Lioness; and grime superstar Jawnino.

This performance will contain extensive haze and strobing effects.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Rockfeedback
