Three years after stunning album Kindly Now and the collaboration with UNKLE, British musician, composer, singer-songwriter Keaton Henson announced the release of a new album via London-based label Mercury KX. Six Lethargies is an original composition, performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and set for release later this year
Composed around, and from within, issues of mental illness and human emotion, the piece aims to express and explain the feelings of anxiety and depression through six connected movements for string orchestra. During the performance a portion of the audience will have their reactions monitored via bio-metrics, allowing their emotional state to control aspects of the production in real time.
“Initium” is the first movement. Watch the official video below.
