In 2016 the Principal Sound Festival at St John's Smith Square explored the music of Morton Feldman, and the festival returns on 16 February 2018 for three days of music curated by Sam Wigglesworth exploring the late works of Morton Feldman and Luigi Nono. Performers include the vocal ensemble Exaudi, the Bozzini Quartet, Explore Ensemble, George Barton (percussion), Siway Rhys (piano), Mark Knoop (piano) and Aisha Orazbayeva (violin).

The festival opens on 16 February with a showcase concert featuring performers from across the festival in a programme of Nono, Schoenberg and Feldman, and the festival closes on 18 February with James Weeks directing Exaudi in a programme which includes music by Sciarrino, Kurtag, Nono, Cage, Linda Caitlin Smith, Rebecca Saunders, John Croft, Feldman and Rihm, plus Guillaume de Machaut.

Other works in the festival include Nono's last completed work, “Hay que caminar” soñando, and Feldman's last work for piano Palais de Mari, Nono's Fragmente Stille, an Diotima and Earle Brown's Hodograph I which was commissioned by Nono for the Darmstadt Festival.
