(UK) - Zan Lyons Live A/V + Strings

Zan Lyons is a one-man army, one of the most distinctive audiovisual performers to date, violinist, producer and film-maker. His stunning shows have received critical acclaim across the globe, where explosive beats collide with melancholic concertos. Recently, Zan has performed with the likes of Battles and Chris Clark as well as collaborating with Warp Records Leila and Nicolette.
Besides, the UK's latitude festival invited him to remix Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. This ever-evolving live re- imagining of Scott's classic sees Lyons cut up scenes from the film-splicing in his own work in the process and replacing the soundtrack with his own score.

His new audiovisual show sees him sample his viola playing and voice and loop them over intense, explosive beats while remixing his haunting visuals. All live! This is a sensory challenging, immersive experience that truly deserves the term 'live cinema'
