Filthy Lucre presents Lingua Ignota, a night of imagined languages.
Like music, imaginary language conveys a need for urgent communication but has unspecifiable meaning. We can glimpse what it means, but never truly grasp it. In this event, which moves from concert to gig to club night, Filthy Lucre continues its exploration of ambitious music in bold settings.
With chamber choir and synthesisers, the Filthy Lucre Ensemble performs Claude Vivier’s langue inventée; Hildegard’s lingua ignota; the nonsense of Bowie/Eno’s Warszawa and the electric babble of the Talking Heads.
New music by Laurence Osborn, art by Georgia Hicks, and film by Paul Vernon Filmmaker will be performed alongside arrangements by Emma-Jean Thackray and Joseph Bates. Lead man Love Ssega will perform the final set, bringing the night to a dynamic close.
Supported by Arts Council England and the generosity of our supporters.
Discounted tickets available until 10th February.
