John De Simone and Thomas Butler : Replaceable Things

Leading new music group Ensemble Thing presents two extraordinary works examining the human condition in the 21st century. John De Simone’s Panic Diary is a deeply personal work about living with an anxiety disorder where the composer and audience alike immerse themselves in a fragile mind-set. Thomas Butler’s Replaceable Parts for the Irreplaceable You combines live musical performance with a cold electronic soundtrack and video in a work that critiques our use of, and reliance upon, new technologies.

Replaceable Things is on at 11.35, in the Red Lecture Theatre, Summerhall, until the 17th August 2014.
