Irresistible: Call of the Sirens

A noisy and exciting music show by Jez Colborne, who loves making music with unusual things like alarm sirens.

Driven by a life-long fascination with warning sirens, Jez Colborne, a multi-talented composer, musician and performer, can hear music where most of us hear noise. Working with Mind the Gap, he has composed something truly irresistible. Irresistible is a symphony of sirens, a musical experience that combines alarm sirens, other non-traditional instruments and singing voices to create a breathtaking choral work that takes over the environs of Royal Festival Hall for one day only.

Post-show talk: Saturday 8 September after 4pm performance. All post-show talks are BSL interpreted and speech to text transcribed.
