Since her re-emergence on the local music scene in 2014 Nathalie Stern’s new work, driven by ominous vocal loops and minimal electronic melodies, has startled and delighted audiences across the region at performances with artists including Tune-Yards, Joy Atlas and Apologies (not to mention major slots at events including NARC.’S 100th Issue Birthday Party and for my very own Endless Window promotions).

Now she’s preparing a very special performance with some new collaborators that promises to be a remarkable and singular event. At The People’s Bookshop in Durham on Sunday 20th March, Nathalie Stern is unleashing An Electronic Journey into the Mind of H.P. Lovecraft.

For those not familiar with Lovecraft’s work, his sinister and controversial short stories have become some of the most important and influential writing within the horror genre: his macabre concepts like the aquatic apocalyptic god Cthulhu now have a cultural reach far beyond that of his own work.

For this performance, Nathalie Stern is joined by members of the Noize Choir, the Newcastle collective whose audacious experiment within the choral form will surely make a fine counterpoint for the loops and machinery of Nathalie Stern. This looks set to be a great one-off performance – make sure you don’t miss it.

Nathalie Stern and Noize Choir play The People’s Bookshop, Durham on Sunday 20th March.
