Having previously sold out two nights at London’s famous venue the Jazz Cafe, Byron Wallen comes to EartH, Hackney and Bristol’s Thekla for two incredible shows in January.
His fantastic show pays homage to Boards of Canada’s seminal album Music Has the Right to Children with work his rarely used gamelan ensemble for a truly unique night
“Hairs sprung up on the back of my neck, and the audience screamed with appreciation” – Resident Advisor
One of the undisputed heavyweight acts in music, Music Has the Right to Children stands as the Scottish duo’s magnum opus, made all the impressive by the fact that it was their debut record.
An adult meditation on childhood, concerned with play, naïveté and nostalgia, all tinted with rosy pastoralism, the sensitivity of the compositions marry beautifully with Byron’s orchestration of the gamelan sound.
