Gus and I drove up to Hackney for a gig at LUME a couple of weeks ago. The venue is Long White Cloud a very nice cafe which likes to show art in the space and serves good food. Anyway, we played with duck-rabbit who where excellent, bending and manipulating sounds they recorded on location with software and home made hardware. Their new album (available on their website) is really worth listening to.
Gus and I were joined by Mirei who had a tiny space to work in but was brilliant, especially her voice work which she has never tried with us before. We did three pieces which was really good and I hope we can carry on like that rather than doing one long piece, I enjoyed resetting myself and diving in afresh (so to speak).
The gig was organised by Cath Roberts and Dee Byrne who were great and I’m pleased that Ripsaw Catfish Cath’s duo with Anton Hunter is coming to Brighton to play at The Scope in December as part of their Shoaling tour. They’ve invited Gus and I to join them for the performance which uses pre arranged sounds and free improvisation. We’re also hoping to get duck-rabbit down in the new year.
