King Midas Sound

Part of London Literature Festival

Lean into the sound of loss with a live performance of King Midas Sound’s fourth album. Reverting to the original duo of Roger Robinson and Kevin Martin, King Midas Sound bring their new record Solitude to Purcell Room.

The album marks their first collaboration with record label Cosmo Rhythmatic – a suitably eclectic home, inhabited by masterful sonic sculptors and shrewdly assembled by Berlin-based artist Shapednoise.

A spoken-word tale written by English-Trinidadian poet and playwright Robinson, Solitude is a meditation on loss. It’s about processing the irrational and incessant feelings of rejection and loneliness, like listening as the tenderness of love disappears and is replaced by skewed logic.

The Bug is the principal outlet for Kevin Martin, the shape-shifting producer with a reputation for his punishing live shows and a heavyweight catalogue of projects and collaborations, including Techno Animal, King Midas Sound, Razor X Productions, and – most recently – Miss Red, ZONAL and The Bug vs Earth.
