Manchester International Festival 2009

"The Durutti Column" comprised of Vini Reilly, Bruce Mitchell, Keir Stewart (Inch Studio senior engineer & producer) and Poppy Morgan will be joined by special guest John Metcalfe.

The Durutti Column will play this year's Manchester International Festival on three successive nights from Wednesday 15 to Friday 17 July 2009. The band will be playing a brand new, specially commissioned instrumental piece entitled "A Paean to Wilson" as a special tribute to Tony Wilson who died in August 2007. The performances will take place in the Pavilion Theatre tent in Albert Square in the city centre of Manchester.

The music is being composed and recorded at Inch" studio and contains some radical instrumental & recording approaches. Many of the pieces are being recorded in an ambisonic format using Daniel Courvelle's B2X plugins & surround mic's such as the Calrec Soundfield, Anthony Wilson was always a keen promoter of new technologies in his days as boss of Factory Records.

Manchester International Festival is the world's first festival of original, new work and special events and takes place biennially, in Manchester, UK. The Festival launched in 2007 as an artist-led, commissioning festival presenting new works from across the spectrum of performing arts, music, visual arts and popular culture.
