Nico Muhly’s weekend festival at the Barbican is happening right now and it’s outrageous. So much good music, some of it easily beautiful and uplifting and other bits challenging and intense. Last night So Percussion got an audience of drunk people clapping in 3 against 4. How cool is that? I have been dronemaking on the treble viol (see above, photo: James McVinnie) and will tonight play Valgeir Sigurðsson’s gorgeous Architecture of Loss thing with Nadia Sirota. Come come come!
