Penny Rimbaud's 'Kernschmelze' is a concerto for improvised piano featuring electronic composer, Charles Webber, on keyboards. It is an entirely instrumental work which follows the anti-music traditions developed by Rimbaud in the 1970's with his band, Exit, and then pursued with Crass in such works as 'Yes, Sir, I Will' and 'Ten Notes on a Summer's Day'. It is brutal, industrial, classical and strangely beautiful - Wagner meets Crass meets Stockhausen in a mammoth cultural meltdown.
