Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall

London-based Chicago producer and composer Kate Simko will be in concert with her London Electronic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 12th October. This is not the first time SEEN has had the pleasure of listening to Simko’s particular blend of classical and electronic music.

With music from the London Electronic Orchestra’s debut album,  released in May 2016, and her seven-piece ensemble, they will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room this autumn. The performance will feature Brighton-based guest vocalist Abi Flynn of the Tru Thoughts label and bespoke styling by Chinese fashion designer Rui Xu, a favourite of Zaha Hadid.

Kate Simko founded the London Electronic Orchestra In 2014, with violinists Essi Kiiski and Kamila Bydlowska, cellists Zoe Saubat and Deni Teo, harpist Valeria Kurbatova and bassist Nina Harries. Orchestrating instruments into her distinctive electronic sound, Simko draws from a unique and diverse background as a pianist, composer, producer and DJ.


The concert on Wednesday 12th October will feature songs from their acclaimed self-titled album Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra, released on The Vinyl Factory, and Kate’s remix of Franz Schubert’s Ständchen D957 which was recently co-released on Decca Classics.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
