Dan Nicholls' Point X: Premiere

11th April 2014
CBSO Centre, Birmingham

Dan Nicholls brings together some of the most progressive and original performers from the UK and further afield, in a project which combines musical and visual material from a stunning array of sources. Making use of new and innovative methods of sampling, visuals and specially designed instruments, the music presented here charts the performers' wide-ranging experiences in Africa and the UK and is characterised by big beats and distinctive hooks, newly explored sound worlds and electrifying group interplay.
