The Sage Gateshead will host the premiere of Noisestra - the first ever collaboration between a classical music ensemble and multi-turntable DJs.
The project is part of the Cultural Olympiad which is a programme of cultural events linked to the Olympic Games.
It was funded by NE-Generation - the Legacy Trust UK programme for the North East which funds projects that aim to create a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Noisestra has involved training up young DJs aged 16-23 to perform with critically acclaimed new music ensemble Apartment House.
Together they have been playing music inspired by the North East and the spirit of the Olympics.
As part of the performance, special visuals including 3D imagery and videos have been created with support from Newcastle web and design agency El Roboto Ltd.
Mariam Rezaei who composed the project said: "It's so exciting to be able to bring a cutting edge musical experiment to Newcastle and the Sage Gateshead as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
"DJ's have performed alongside classical musicians in the past, but never with so many turntables or using graphic scores rooted in the identity and culture of North East England.
"This is going to be an incredible show, a world first and a great showcase of the talents of young DJ's in this region."
Noisestra and Apartment House will be premiered at The Sage Gateshead on August 10.
