Join us in the Hall or online to tune back into the sounds we unconsciously block out in the hustle and bustle of life with performances responding to the noises of the environments around us.

How has our relationship with our world changed over time? Does your background change how you listen? We strive to answer these questions and more with musical responses to environmental sounds, field recordings and ambient performances, with appearances from a multitude of musicians of different cultural and geographical backgrounds, including the Ligeti Quartet, Cedrik Fermont, Kate Carr, Rebeca Omordia, Langham Research Centre and more.

As the ‘newest, most powerful force’ in classical music (Wall Street Journal), Nonclassical cross boundaries of genre and convention to support new and emerging classical artists. What began as a London club night has developed into a promotor, record label and events producer, creating a space for audiences to hear the newest and most innovative sounds of classical.

This livestream will be available to watch back until Tue 22 Feb 2022 at 7.30pm. You can buy a ticket up until this point. The live stream is available globally.

Co-produced by Barbican and Nonclassical
