South East London musical polymath Coby Sey joins forces with the London Contemporary Orchestra to present a radical new acoustic work

Coby Sey is a vocalist, musician and DJ from South East London who offers a shifting, disorienting vision of club music. Coby’s prolific, open-hearted creative presence in London has seen him develop a formidable body of work in recent years, through both his own material and via close collaborations and performances with a host of acclaimed artists including Tirzah, Mica Levi (with whom he features in CURL) and Lafawndah.

Sey's music is reflective of his vast spectrum of influences, yet he remains undeniably uniquely himself; experimenting with live instrumentation and electronic-based productions, melding sounds with introspective lyrics into a dubbed-out anaesthesia. Live, these dreamlike compositions are imbued with a heavy, uneasy dancefloor energy, often abetted by live vocals as well as saxophone interjections c/o regular cohorts Ben Vince and CJ Calderwood.

NEW MUSIC BIENNIAL 2022
In Coventry and London, Serious has commissioned Coby to create an entirely acoustic new 15 minute work, From The Vestry, in collaboration with members of the London Contemporary Orchestra – a radical departure for a musician and producer most known for his electronic work. Building on his recent Purcell Room performance with the LCO, Coby will both impart knowledge and learn from his collaborators to enter into new musical territories, while introducing his and the wider audience to abroad array of musical influences rarely heard together.
These performances are free but require ticket booking.
 Suitable for all ages. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult 18+

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.


BRISTOL NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL
In Bristol, Coby and members of the LCO will perform this newly created piece, From The Vestry, alongside other pieces from Coby's catalogue. They play alongside Beatrice Dillon, Kuljit Bhamra, and Tara Clerkin Trio with tickets priced at £14+bkg
