THE MEMBRANES will perform a very special concert in Estonia later this month, featuring a 20-piece choir and a conversation with a leading CERN scientist.
The Universe: Explained will see the band perform the whole of their acclaimed Dark Matter / Dark Energy album, joined by the all-women Sireen choir, at the arthouse cinema Kino Sõprus in Tallinn on Friday 25 September. Forming part of a pan-European series of events called Researchers Night, the evening will also feature an interview with CERN scientist Umut Kose by Membranes founder John Robb.
“I saw the Sireen choir play in Estonia in the spring at Tallinn Music Week festival and it was an astonishing concert,” explains Robb. “I was excited by brilliant use of their voices and heard in my head how it would work perfectly with the drones and drama in the Membranes music. The idea of a choir working with a post punk band is exciting in its possibilities.”
The Tallinn performance is one of a series of occasional events by the band, combining scientific conversations with experiments, films and live music. The series will culminate with a 10,000 capacity festival next summer.
