For the third Festival in My House, Leo Mercer turned his high-rise apartment into an intimate Festival venue.  The New Islington Sessions featured three unique new collaborations between string quartet echo chamber and Manchester-based vocalists Marco Woolf and Lazuli, set against the backdrop of the city.  Guests were immersed in music written by artists as diverse as Arvo Part and Kanye West, with a local visual artist and barista responding to the music in real time. 
Curated by Leo Mercer, with support from Manchester International Festival.
