Stephin Merritt – writer, producer and master songsmith behind The Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs – has long chronicled the human condition through song. In celebration of his first half-century on the planet, the famously mysterious artist is turning the spotlight around, sharing stories that span the years from his conception by hippies on a houseboat to his current position as one of America’s greatest living songwriters. The 50-Song Memoir recounts Merritt’s first 50 years with one song for each year of his life. A spectacular staging features 50 instruments from Merritt’s formidable collection and a newly expanded Magnetic Fields septet, alongside 50 years’ worth of ornaments and gadgets. Presented by Luminato.

Icelandic composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds transcends categorization. Straight after his audio-visual project Island Songs – the award-winning composition for the television show Broadchurch – and a world tour with electronic outfit KIASMOS, Ólafur and his team went back to the lab to work on a new live experience. All Strings Attached is born from our forgotten yet inherent interconnectedness. It’s an invitation to commit – to oneself, to each other and to the moment – and to reject the Zeitgeist notion of “no strings attached.” Presented by Luminato.
