You may have heard Christophe Chassol performing on Frank Ocean’s recent album, but the maverick Parisian pianist and composer has many other musical and cinematic strings to his bow. At tonight’s show, a Manchester exclusive, he’ll be performing live with two of his own films: the UK premiere of Six Pianos, set to Steve Reich’s hypnotic classic, and Indiamore, a project for which Chassol used sounds sampled and collected on the streets of India as a jumping-off point for his own compelling and deeply evocative music. One of modern music’s true one-offs.
