JOHN CALE: SIGNAL TO NOISE
Feat. Special Guests Lisa Gerrard And Laurel Halo (UK/USA/AUS)
World Premiere

"A pioneer who refuses to stop innovating" — NME

In a blinding conclusion to two days of immersive, extreme, blissful ecstatic performance, Supersense: Festival of the Ecstatic presents one of the true icons of 20th Century contemporary innovation.

An artist whose biography incorporates some of the most adventurous, ecstatic and explorative output achieved by a single performer today, do not miss the iconic John Cale’s Signal to Noise, a major new work commissioned for Supersense that traces the line of experimentation through his career spanning over five decades.

One of the towering figures of modern music unleashes a new cross-media extravaganza set to spark the fires of the imagination, featuring a stunning line-up of performers including Dead Can Dance's Lisa Gerrard and Michigan electronic innovator Laurel Halo.

This genre-bending audio-visual trip furthers his quest to find new ways to startle and seduce the senses. Bespoke arrangements of both classics and rarely heard songs will be matched by intriguing glimpses into what the future holds for this fearless pioneer.

From co-founding The Velvet Underground to collaborating with the likes of Brian Eno, Patti Smith, The Stooges, Happy Mondays and LCD Soundsystem, John Cale seems to have had a hand in every major moment of musical innovation for half a century.

This performance is the closing night event of Supersense and is included in the full Festival Pass.
