Expect a heady mix of dangerous realism, experimentation, and dreamy relief during ACO Underground’s Satu in the Beyond at Phoenix Central Park.
Provocative and enigmatic, Satu in the Beyond is a boundary-pushing, electro-acoustic collaboration fronted by ACO Principal Violin Satu Vänskä. Alternating between performing on her precious 1726 ‘Belgiorno’ Stradivarius and taking to the microphone as vocalist, Vänskä will be joined by ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti, Charlie Westhoff on violin and electronics, and producer and keyboardist Paul Beard (Music Director for the likes of Robbie Williams, Lily Allen, Bryan Ferry and Art Garfunkel).
“Satu In The Beyond is the band that has evolved from the ACO Underground project over the years” Vänskä said. “The aim is for audiences to encounter the unexpected – beautiful at one end and shocking at the other – but where the music is always at the forefront.”
