Immix Ensemble

Immix Ensemble

Immix Ensemble formed in 2014, as part of a Metal Time and Space residency, to join up the conversation between the classical and pop music voices within the city. They are now in their third series of unique, collaborative performances.
Signed to acclaimed label Erased Tapes, Immix have developed and presented over 20 new works, working with artists across boundaries, from the leftfield pop songwriting of Jane Weaver, Stealing Sheep and Kelly Lee Owens, to artists at the forefront of the British experimental community such as Vessel, Luke Abbott and Ex-Easter Island Head.

Immix Ensemble
Forest Swords


What will music become in our rapidly changing cities? A new commission created by Merseyside’s Forest Swords and Immix Ensemble investigates.

Trespassing uses field recordings, construction blueprints and architectural data to speculate on how the transformation of cityscapes worldwide will shape what we hear, and how we hear it.

How is the identity of a city expressed in its soundscape? How does this connect to our sense of ownership over public space? And what might public spaces feel and sound like in the future?

World premiere performance of electronic producer and artist Forest Swords’, aka Matthew Barnes, first commission for ensemble, working with Erased Tapes signees Immix Ensemble.
