The soundtrack to separation

As a reaction to the UK's coming exit from the EU, the British DJ, sound researcher and producer Matthew Herbert set up the Brexit Big Band. In its concerts, between orchestral drama, disco, jazz, and a lot of fun, the troupe has been taking the stage at different locations in Europe to create pieces with local musicians which will be released in an album at the same moment that britain leaves the EU in 2019.

  • When: 27 July, 2018
  • Where: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10, 10557 Berlin, Germany
  • Tickets: from 18 € online via HDKDW

The concert is part of Haus der Kulturen der Welt's yearly Wassermusik festival, which takes Brexit as an opportunity to pay homage to the extraordinary musical and cinematic creativity from the UK from 27 July until 18 August, 2018.
