We’re delighted to be working with Manchester International Festival and Sounds From The Other City to present Kiran Leonard: ‘Song of the Husband’.
Hugely precocious and astonishingly prolific, Kiran Leonard had compiled a rich, varied and brilliant catalogue of music even before he celebrated his 21st birthday last year. Now, the Saddleworth native is bringing his new art-and-music project to Festival Square. Song of the Husband was discovered by archaeologists during a recent expedition to an unnamed planet in a distant solar system. Life once thrived on this faraway planet, but all its civilisations have long since been wiped out. Says Leonard, Song of the Husband ‘is living evidence of what artists have to say when their world is dying, in response to problems that cannot be understood, reasoned with or overcome.’ Visit Leonard’s Song of the Husband website for more on the project – then see and hear it first at MIF17.
