A brand new commission and unique collaboration between Seb Rochford, Leo Abrahams and Leafcutter John, who will work with a core band of percussion, guitar, strings and electronics exploring the ‘Rhythm of Strings’.

Seb Rochford is a British drummer recently shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize. He is happiest playing music of all genres, from hip hop and ‘drum and bass’ to electric jazz and more, and he has worked with Corinne Bailey Rae, Brian Eno and David Byrne.

Leo Abrahams is already one of the most sought-after guitar players in the world. His exceptional guitar playing and musical arrangements can be heard on recordings by Brian Eno, Ed Harcourt, Starsailor and throughout the Hollywood blockbuster Ocean’s Twelve.

Leafcutter John is a London based songwriter and electronic musician, combining the worlds of computers and traditional folk music.
