Ether - "Decasia" (UK Premiere): Aurora Orchestra, Nicholas Collon
M. Gordon: Decasia - a film by Bill Morrison (70')
Aurora gives the UK premiere of "Decasia", widely regarded as one of the great cross-arts collaborations of the past decade.
Constructed from severely decayed archival footage, Bill Morrison's hypnotic, stunningly beautiful film was cut to Michael Gordon's matching soundworld of decay, with a large amplified orchestra playing music that Alex Ross describes as 'wedding the hypnotic aura of minimalism to the detuned snarl of highbrow punk'.

Aurora Orchestra aims to inspire, challenge and astonish new audiences with great music, brilliantly performed. It seeks to be the UK's most versatile orchestra, combining world-class performance with eclectic and innovative programming, a commitment to adventurous collaboration across perceived frontiers of musical genre and artistic form, and a refusal to be bound by convention.
'In a city suffocating with musical activity, Nicholas Collon's Aurora Orchestra lets in more fresh air than most. The aim is to make an audience hear anew, not by sugaring any pills, not by didactic explanation, not by light-shows, but by context' (The Times)
'It is hard to imagine performances more assured and expressive than these by Nicholas Collon and the Aurora Orchestra' (BBC Music Magazine).
