The performances will also feature archive material from the original recording and other music by Ron Geesin, including new scores created specially for the occasion.

Ron, beavering away in his home studio, tells us that he's "nearly finished writing a new opening piece for the ten brass".

Taking place at London's Cadogan Hall on Saturday June 14th (at 7:30pm), and Sunday June 15th (at 7pm), the performances will feature Italian band Mun Floyd; a ten piece brass ensemble from the Royal College of Music; cellist Caroline Dale (who has also worked with David Gilmour); and the 40-strong chorus Canticum conducted by Mark Forkgen.

Located in Chelsea, Cadogan Hall is fast becoming a very highly rated concert venue. Easy to get to, with good public transport links of all sorts, and providing superb acoustics, it should be the perfect place to enjoy Atom Heart Mother as you've never heard it before...
