Resonance at the Still Point of Change

A new live music and visual show by Simon Allen that explores how we connect the things we see, hear and read in our minds. 

The premiere performance of a new audio-visual song-cycle that reveals unexpected connections between sight, sound, touch and words.

Composer Simon Allen's richly intricate score combines instrumental and natural sounds with electronic processes and breathtaking multi-screen video images. Sung and spoken words visible on screen include a poetic response to the world of the piece.

Resonance explores live interplay of the senses and celebrates our ability for freely associated thought.

An eclectic ensemble of five musicians and three vocalists join to perform this unique experience.

This performance is Audio Described. There is a pre-performance touch tour starting at 6.30pm. Please meet at the Queen Elizabeth Hall Ticket Office at 6.30pm. To book access tickets, please call our Ticket Office on 0844 847 9910, or reserve via email at

Following the performance there will be a post-performance talk in the auditorium lasting approximately 20 to 30 mins which is BSL interpreted and speech-to-text transcribed.

Resonance at the Still Point of Change is an Unlimited Commission for the Cultural Olympiad.
