Our audience members created their own spiritual and spatial journeys through music, architecture and visuals in the first concert of our Modern Mystics series on 9 November. As someone on Twitter put it, we treated them to ‘a sonic full body massage’.
There were people exploring Southwark Cathedral as our musicians and Epiphoni Consort took up different positions to perform; meditating to the tranquil music on cushions, pews and chairs, and leaning against the architecture while admiring Jack James’ stunning projections.
Take a look at some of the fantastic photos from the night, taken by Kaupo Kikkas.

Where are you all? We’re midway through @CityLdnSinfonia’s #ModernMystics at @Southwarkcathed – who knew how thrilling it would be to *be able* to walk around a classical concert? Exquisite, personal, cinematic. This is the future.
