The third London Contemporary Music Festival is on at Ambika P3, running December 11 to 17.

The week-long multi-disciplinary event explores new international music and performance in a sequence of themed evening events including titles like ‘Capital Collective’, ‘To A New Definition Of Opera II’, ‘A Martian Sends a Postcard Home’ and ‘Requiem for Reality’.

Artists and performances worth looking out for include, VisionistPoulomi Desai and David Toop on December 11, John Cage, Morton Subotnick and Terry Riley on December 12, Tim Etchells and Aisha Orazbayeva on December 13 and a screening of Ryan Trecartin‘s CENTRE JENNY (2013) alongside a performance by edges ensemble – including Lucy RailtonSue Tompkins and others – on December 15.

There’ll be a presentation of Tino Sehgal’s Instead of allowing some thing to rise up to your face dancing bruce and dan and other things (2000) and the European premiere of Norwegian composer Oyvind Torvund‘s Untitled School/Mud Jam/Campfire Tunes, with Islam Chipsy among its Plus Minus Ensemble performers, on December 16.

Most pertinently, though, December 17 will include contributions from Felicita and James Ferraro for the ‘Requiem for Reality’ programme – “Some call it Post-Internet Art” – while a number of artist talks, running at the Ace Hotel December 12 to 13, will include a conversation between Visionist and music critic Adam Harper.
