Nathan Fake & Multi-Story Orchestra Headline Nonclassical at Bloc



We’re huge fans of Nathan Fake here at Data Transmission. Strangely (and frustratingly for us) Nathan always seems to be on early regardless of billing and despite his less then peak time slot we’re always as excited to see Fake’s performance as we are the headline act. Thus you can imagine our excitement when Bloc announced that he’d be sharing top billing with Multi-Story Orchestra at their newly renamed eponymous nightclub down in Hackney Wick for a “never before attempted culture clash of contemporary classical stalwarts and top of their games electronic producers – all wrapped up in a Bloc package.”

The fluidity of his sets, the live and improvisational he takes to performance, his no-rules approach to producing melodic and idiosyncratic-sounding dance-music, have long marked him out as as one of the most talented artists within music today. Now we’ve finished fawning over his ability to turn in a live show we’ll move on to his co-headliner Multi-Story Orchestra.

The Multi-Story Orchestra began in 2011 with a performance of Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’ for 100 musicians in a Car Park in Peckham and they continue to bring re-interpretation of classical music to unexpected places. As well as performing a piece with Nathan Fake, they shall play Grisey’s ‘Periodes’, Tamsy Davies’ ‘Neon’ as well as a special performance with John Matthias and Nick Ryan, playing their seminal composition ‘Cortical Songs’.

With further support coming from Klavikon, Tom Richards and Dirty Electronics we’re expecting a special night indeed down at Autumn Street on November 15.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
