Gainsborough / Singh Paradise Lost


Rakhi Singh Violin
Sebastian Gainsborough
+ Manchester Collective

The major commission in our 2018/19 season, Paradise Lost reunites the creative team behind last year’s critically acclaimed “Written in Fire” - Vessel, AKA composer and electronic musician Sebastian Gainsborough, and Rakhi Singh, Music Director of Manchester Collective.

One of the most enigmatic, disruptive, and exciting creative duos of their generation, Vessel and Singh have created a large scale original work for Manchester Collective, a magnum opus that draws together fractured and disparate music from their respective worlds.

Here, the sacred meets the profane, the acoustic clashes with the electronic, and some of the earliest classical music ever written is dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century.
