Thom Yorke previews atmospheric new music from art installation

It's from a new audiovisual project called 'City Rats'

Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke has previewed a new collaboration with composer Tarik Barri.

The ethereal and atmospheric snippet is part of a new audiovisual installation called ‘City Rats’, commissioned by the Institute for Sound and Music in Berlin.

Yorke and Barri’s piece will play from the ISM Hexadome, a 54-speaker and 6-screen structure, at the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin on Saturday (April 21).

Preview the collaboration in the video below.

Its description explains: “All sounds are visible as objects in 3D space, and the camera’s position determines what we hear and where we hear it, so all harmonies, voices, melodies and rhythms are the result of our flight through space.”

Yorke recently announced details of a UK and Europe solo tour. He will hit the road from May through to June.

Radiohead, meanwhile, recently appeared embroiled in a legal battle with Lana Del Rey, but, last month, Del Rey suggested that the lawsuit had come to an end.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Del Rey had been accused of copyright infringement due to supposed similarities in elements of Radiohead’s 1993 hit ‘Creep’ and her ‘Lust For Life’ album track ‘Get Free’.

Del Rey hinted that the feud has come to an end during her set at Lollapalooza Brasil. Fans started to chant for ‘Get Free’ during to encore – to which she responded: “Now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song any time I want, right?”
