The event takes place on December 4 in conjunction with Rough Trade, looking back at the duo’s 30-year career through the lens of their new book, Paused in Cosmic Reflection.
Both Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons will give some “rare insight” into the world of The Chemical Brothers as they speak on their journey. The panel discussion will be chaired by author and journalist Miranda Sawyer.
The event will see Miranda Sawyer speak in conversation with the co-author of Paused in Cosmic Reflection, Robin Turner, as well as The Chemical Brothers’ long-term collaborator and artistic director Adam Smith, and book contributor and DJ Justin Robertson.
Tickets to the event include a signed copy of the book, as well as access to the afterparty for a handful of attendees with a DJ set from Justin Robertson.
Paused in Cosmic Reflection landed on shelves in October via publishers White Rabbit, described as the ‘definitive story of The Chemical Brothers’ retrospectively spanning their 30-year career, and told by both the duo and collaborators over the years.
The book also includes the voices of other artists, stage designers, and friends of the duo, collating hundreds of hours of interviews. The book also stretches back to the very beginning of their music career in Manchester, and documents their live show through the years.
