20:00 Hildur Guðnadóttir – "Chernobyl" ft. Sam Slater & Chris Watson

Icelander Hildur Guðnadóttir presents a live version of her Emmy-award winning score to the TV series "Chernobyl."

Ranging from intimate simplicity to huge soundscapes, the work combines acoustic instrumentation and field recordings from Chernobyl’s sister power plant Ignalina in Lithuania. Hildur will be joined by Sam Slater and field recordist Chris Watson, artists who helped realise her vision. Lighting is by Theresa Baumgartner, and spatialisation by Francesco Donadello.

Caution: This show uses stroboscopic lights


"Chernobyl" is co-commissioned by Unsound, Dark Mofo, the Barbican, and Rewire. The presentation at CTM is supported by the Nordic Culture Fund.
