It’s been announced that Aphex Twin will stage one of his ‘Remote Orchestra’ concerts at London’s Barbican Hall on 10 Oct.

As per the show’s premiere in Poland last year, the electronic producer – real name Richard James – will conduct the 40-piece Heritage string orchestra and choir via remote control, creating what The Quietus has christened a “visual score” that can be remixed in real time.

The London performance will also feature ‘Interactive Tuned Feedback Pendulum Array’, also known as James’ interpretation of American maestro Steve Reich’s 1963 piece ‘Pendulum Music’.
