Manu Delago – Chamber Orchestra Tour

Sun 29 Sep, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £13

World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago returns with a brand-new album and his biggest live show to date.

Circadian (out 13th September via One Little Indian Records) takes the listener through the cycle of sleep stages, emulating REM, light sleep, deep sleep and an abrupt awakening. Delago was inspired by the concept of individual circadian rhythms, due in part to his own lack of sleep as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar.

Manu Delago’s previous release, the multi-award winning film Parasol Peak, was written to be performed and recorded on a mountain under extreme circumstances but the music was never played live in front of an audience. Delago states the whole expedition as a big lesson in team spirit and ensemble playing. For Circadian Delago put together a 9-piece-ensemble with some of his favourite musicians to make the album and live-show a unique sonic journey.
