Regular Music II were early instigators of the UK post-systems movement whose work straddles the spheres of rock, minimalism and post-punk.

Kaffe Matthews has been making and performing new music via all kinds of digital gadgetry all over the world for the past 15 years.

Endings is a unique collaboration bringing together Regular Music’s vibrantly theatrical live sound with the noisy rhythms and abstract cyber landscapes of Kaffe Matthews’ music in which the ends of key Modernist works of literature are set to music – including James Joyce’s Ulysses, Jack Kerouac’s On the Road and Don DeLillo’s White Noise

Sunley Pavilion Room, Level 3, Royal Festival Hall at 6pm – Pre-concert talk. Composers Jeremy Peyton Jones and Kaffe Matthews will talk about their collaboration, the combination of electronic and acoustic music, and the setting of texts to music.
