Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet and Turner Prize nominated artist Hannah Collins present the world premiere performance of their new audio-visual work Terrain: The Earth Beneath My Feet.

In this profound, collaborative audio-visual performance of Terrain: The Earth Beneath My Feet, Hannah Collins’ sensitive, mesmerizing images of Las Campanas Observatory in the Atacama Desert in Chile, find a gently resonant dialogue with Portico Quartet’s 2021 album Terrain, a body of work that represents one of the most complex and beautiful pieces the band have composed, shifting through different musical worlds with an insistent pulse and horizontal movement. 

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance date. 

Produced by the Barbican.
