G.F. Haas’ in vain, written in 2000 for 24 instruments, is an exploration of a musical sound outside the standard tonal system of composition. The normal concert experience is altered with parts of the performance given in pitch-black according to a series of carefully planned lighting changes that alter and heighten the listener’s senses. This extraordinary work has been performed many times in Europe and now has its much-awaited premiere in London. Presented by the London Sinfonietta as part of Southbank Centre’s The Rest is Noise Festival, inspired by Alex Ross’ book The Rest is Noise.
