A fantasy musical set in a care home, directed and scored by South London-based musician Klein.

About

A musical directed and scored by Klein    

Care is a fantasy musical set in a care home. After a magical turn of events, the kids are transported into a world that will change their lives forever.    

South London-based musician Klein has released EPs Tommy (Hyperdub, 2017) and Lagata (self-released, 2016), and LP Only (Howling Owl Records, 2016), and performed in venues including the Southbank Centre, London, Pioneer Works, New York and Yale Union, Portland. Her releases, accompanying videos and performances define a singular vision operating between disjunctive experimentalism and a sensory world that melds popular reference points with personal associations.

Her music is assembled around staccato earworm loops of piano refrains and murky electronic tones layered with filtered and distorted vocals. Often glitching to the point of near collapse, Klein's compositions spasmodically summon euphoric strains of gospel music and influences as diverse as Nigerian B-movies, Andrew Lloyd-Webber musicals, Disney films and the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.  

Care is accompanied by a new book written by Klein and illustrated by artist Evie O'Connor.
