The unique, “brilliant” (Boston Globe), self-conducted string orchestra A Far Cry joins forces with post-rock powerhouse This Will Destroy You and renowned composer Christopher Tignor, with his band, Slow Six (pictured), for an evening of music that is large-scale in every sense. Tignor will offer his stunning work for string orchestra and electronics, Thunder Lay Down In the Heart, as well as new arrangements for Slow Six, “a compelling voice that supersedes the need for any words” (The Deli) together with A Far Cry. This Will Destroy You, whose “immersive live performances and remarkable composition skills place them at the forefront of pioneering contemporary music” The Austinist), will present string-augmented versions of their atmospheric instrumental pieces, prominently featuring the strings of A Far Cry mixed with their usual layers of effects-laden guitar, keyboards, bass and drums.
