A sell out gig with Scottish album of the year winner Kathryn Joseph performing songs from her latest release ‘From when I wake the want is’.
Support from the talented SHHE.
In partnership with the British Arts council we ran a week long artist’s residency with 3 musicians from different corners of the world - Robert Stillman, Sean Carpio and Anders Holst.
They came together under our roof to generate new original material, which we recorded and broadcast at the end of their stay. This was followed by a live performance which was streamed live on 02.03.19.
Minimalist critically acclaimed trombonist Peter Zummo performing alongside master Gyil player Bex Burch; joined on the night by the equally legendary Robert Stillman on Saxaphone and super talent Tom Skinner on drums.
Percussionist and tabla player Sarathy Korwar (under moniker ‘Rathisa’) in an experimental set with electronic maestro Danalogue (The Comet Is Coming/Soccer96).
Performance was accompanied by sound installation ‘Sui Generis’. Artist - Josh Cannon. A tape machine connected to a motion capture camera with facial recognition capabilities generated soundscapes in response to facial expressions.
In partnership with Trestle records, ‘The Guitar and Other Machines’ showcased an array of Guitar-led performances from Leo Abrahams, Adam Coney, Nick Siddal, Dean Valentine-Smith, Ross downes & Tout.
Walking us through a spectrum of Electro / Kraut / Americana and Ambient Classical Improv, each performance reframed the classic instrument in different ways - with the help of everything from pedals and beat machines, to computer programs to left-field accompanying instruments.
The group were joined on the night by special guest - composer Donna McKevitt.
American multi-instrumentalist and composer Robert Stillman performs with percussionist Tom Skinner (Hello Skinny/Sons of Kemmet) on opening night.
Brainchild of Kevin Morpurgo (Dandelion/NTS/Radio Margate), Open Jack is a night of improvised jamming for experimental musicians to gather with like-minded individuals and explore the possibilities of free-form music.
Musicians and spectators equally welcome, this is a rolling, free-to-attend gathering of ‘sonic geeks’.
