Composer Keaton Henson presents an evening of works, including reworks of Six Lethargies, the musician’s most involved project to date.

Drawing on emotion, deep thought and intricate work, Six Lethargies is the culmination of over three years of work from the musician, artist and composer.

Composed around, and from within, the issues of mental illness and human emotion, the piece aims to express and explain the feelings of anxiety and depression through six connected movements for string orchestra.

In writing the piece, Henson met with neuroscientists, music theorists and biofeedback specialists to ask the simple question: ‘If I write how it feels to me, will it make you feel the same?’

Keaton Henson

Keaton Henson appearing at this event

You hear a voice in a room. It is tender and gentle, but it bites at your bones. You hear a guitar's golden echoes, creating a cocoon you can't leave. You hear the voice of a man whose songs, artwork and poetry are known by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Yet Keaton Henson is a virtual stranger, whose anonymity is no accident. He has never toured, appeared in a video, posted on social networks, and rarely leaves his hometown or his bedroom. He may be delicate, but he is no wallflower: Keaton’s songs are as brutal as they are beautiful.
