The Guardian - The Guide - - Music -

HCMF has had

Ex­per­i­men­tal an in­jec­tion of fun for its 40th edi­tion. No­table is the head­line show from Zeitkratzer (pic­tured), who have trans­posed Kraftwerk for a 10-piece en­sem­ble (18 Nov). They have form in trans­pos­ing mu­sic that shouldn’t work, hav­ing done the same with Metal Ma­chine Mu­sic. That record will be per­formed (by a dif­fer­ent group) on horns, strings and per­cus­sion (Fri). Also, don’t miss ex­per­i­men­tal harpist Rho­dri Davies (23 Nov); works by Pauline Oliv­eros (25 Nov); and pieces for the har­monic canon, a halftonne art­work-cum-dou­ble bell (20 Nov).

Var­i­ous venues, Fri to 26 Nov
