Roger Goula: Overview Effect in concert

Wednesday 20th July 2016 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Music Event, Chargeable Event

In the intimate setting of our auditorium, hear multi-instrumentalist and composer Roger Goula perform pieces from his upcoming album Overview Effect – the debut release from new label Cognitive Shift Recordings.

Roger Goula has based his album on the psychological phenomenon experienced by astronauts when  viewing  Earth  from  a  distance,  allowing  them  to see  the  entire  planet  surrounded  by  the endless black  void  of  space.  This  can  cause  a  cognitive  shift  in  the  minds  of  the  astronauts, giving  them a completely  new perspective  on  life,  Earth  and  humanity. His compositions, in the vein of his peers such as Nils Frahm and Max Richter, bridge the gap between classical and electronic music in a way that is both reflective and transportive. Inspired by renaissance and baroque music (Monteverdi, Bach, Vivaldi), as well as by minimalism (Reich, Glass, Part), and looking at the language of electronic music (Aphex Twin, Autechre), his compositions perform complexity through repetition of minimal elements and emotional textures.  

Join us for a unique event with a rising star of contemporary classical music.
