John Cage: Ryoanji

Sunday 29 March 2020

This event has been postponed until further notice, we apologise for any disappointment.

Book via BCMG 
Outside Ikon, Oozells Square, Brindleyplace

Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG) and Ikon present a live outdoor performance of John Cage’s 1984 work Ryoanji, composed for flute with electronic sound projections and percussion. This performance, amongst the cherry trees in Oozells Square, coincides with John Newling’s exhibition, and creates “a garden of sound” with the instruments playing the very outlines of the stones and the raked sand that surrounds them.

Please consider making a donation for free events. Ikon is a registered charity and your support helps us with everything we do.
