Alarm Will Sound returns to Saint Louis and the Sheldon Concert Hall on May 9 to perform new music by DJ/producer King Britt, Alexandra Drewchin (Eartheater), and multi-instrumentalist Oren Ambarchi. These musical artists collaborate with Alarm Will Sound to create new work that brings together the diversity of their backgrounds, from electronica to classical from jazz to noise. This push to mix styles and defy genres is part of our Alarm System project whose world-class participants over the last four years have included jazz/avant-garde trio Medeski Martin & Wood, Warp Records artist Mira Calix, Brian Reitzell (composer of the soundtrack to the television show Hannibal), and St. Louis Native Ryan McNeely, to name a few.
