Priory Refectory


Forest Swords is an internationally celebrated, Wirral-based, electronic musician and producer. For Future Yard 2019 he will take over the Refectory at the 1000-year old Birkenhead Priory, presenting the premiere of PYLON; a brand new installation project exploring the possibilities of tech and traditional instrumentation.

Made entirely from percussive cymbals that use audio and computer data to play themselves, over the course of the festival the installation will create a sea of sounds and rhythms that change, shift and oscillate. At points across the festival, PYLON will become a space for experimentation, with Forest Swords and special guest collaborators creating improvised interventions alongside the piece.
