Dark Matter

Curated by BBC Radio 6 Music tastemaker Mary Anne Hobbs, Dark Matter was a stunning collection of eight immersive shows from pioneering national, international and Manchester-based musicians. Lighting designer Stuart Bailes transformed Gorilla and the O2 Ritz, creating new universes for each artist. The line-up covered everything from drone metal to freeform jazz, street poetry to radical electronica – and all pushed creative boundaries to the limit.
