Marconi Union return to the Yard with lots of electronic machines that make nice noises.

Mark Peters brings his guitar and a new album, Red Sunset Dreams, which is stunning.

Marconi Union fit somewhere between artists such as Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, Biosphere and Boards of Canada - whilst at the same time having their own distinct sound. They are best known for Weightless which has being described by academics and others as ‘the most relaxing piece of music ever made’. It has over 290 million audio streams and 140 million YouTube streams. They have worked with many other artists including Jah Wobble, Max Richter, Biosphere, Steve Jansen (Japan) and Marina Ambramovich Institute. The group have previously played at a variety of festivals and events, notably Big Chill festival and Punkt! Festival in Norway, the latter at the invitation of Brian Eno. In late 2019 they toured with Canadian artist Loscil and in April last year played a sell-out London show with Sweden’s Carbon Based Lifeforms.

Marconi Union’s live appearances are a swirling atmospheric mixture of melodies, hypnotism, and emotion.

“Minimal, introspective, ethereal electronica – gorgeous” – The Guardian.

“Exquisite, subtle soundscapes, an essential purchase for ambient addicts” – DJ Mag

Mark Peters (Ex frontman of super cool Shoegaze/Dreampop outfit The Engineers) latest album Red Sunset Dreams is an instant Electronic / Ambient classic featuring pedal steel legend BJ Cole and cult 90s band One Dove's singer-songwriter leader Dot Allison.

Following a career-defining three-album collaboration with German electronic maestro Ulrich Schnauss - for six years a key member of world-famous Tangerine Dream - Peters is now on a rapid upward trajectory. Infuenced and informed by Dave Gilmour, Pink Floyd, Brian Eno, the Cocteau Twins and Spiritualized.
