Following the release of the ‘Audio Track 5’ EP electronic producer and musician Darren Cunningham AKA Actress and the London Contemporary Orchestra (LCO) are to release a full album of their collaboration on Ninja Tune entitled ‘LAGEOS’.

Originally performed at the Barbican in February 2016, the project was curated by Boiler Room and LCO. A synergy between both live electronic and acoustic components, Actress and LCO augmented traditional piano and created sounds from objects as varied as temple bowls and plastic bags.

LCO recorded the individual parts as stems which were then sent to Actress to manipulate, delivering some truly unique new pieces as well as reinterpretations of Actress classics ‘N.E.W.’ and ‘Hubble’.

Hugh Brunt of LCO said of working with Actress, “In many ways the collaboration is about exploring an ambiguity of sound that sits between electronic and acoustic spaces; something that we’re aiming to push further as part of the live shows.”
