Following the presentation of their new work 'It' in collaboration with Vessel & Rakhi, NYX Creative Director & resident DJ Josh T will play out the evening with a closing set for the New Music Biennial at hmv Empire. Continuing on from a series of conceptual DJ mixes and radio shows for the likes of NTS, Stamp The Wax and Friendly Potential, this will be the debut live DJ set from NYX.

Expect a high-energy selection that traverses a wide array of experimental electronics and global club sounds. Josh T has previously hosted a long-running radio show on South London's Balamii Radio and has played at clubs and music festivals across the UK & Europe.

New Music Biennial is a PRS Foundation and Southbank Centre initiative. Presented in partnership with Coventry UK City of Culture, BBC Radio 3 and NMC Recordings with support from Arts Council of England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Strictly 18+, ID required.

Access information

Socially Distanced Seating:

There are socially distanced seats in each venue for New Music Biennial shows. A limited number of seats are available which are reserved for people who identify as being extremely clinically vulnerable. Wheelchair users may also be accommodated in these areas or within another part of the auditorium. If you would like to request seating in this area, please first book your tickets as normal and then let us know of your request through this form. We will then reply to you to confirm whether you can be accommodated.

Captioning:

A Captioning service is provided by 'My Clear Text' and will be accessible on your own device using a QR code to access the streaming website and read along.

Each piece of music will have lyrics or a simple description of what you can hear. The Q&A will then be live captioned. The second playing of the music will be accompanied again by lyrics and/or simple description.

BSL Interpretation:

BSL Interpretation is not being provided for this event as feedback from similar music events has shown that it is not appropriate for something so heavily reliant on hearing music with a very small proportion having any lyrics. Many of the artists involved have told us that it would not feel appropriate in these circumstances and may be misleading to suggest that a BSL user would find this provision makes the event more accessible.
