Concrète: Group Listening / Powders / Lorentzian

Saturday, 2 March 2019 - 8:00pm
 
Group Listening is a band with a simple but devastatingly effective concept: take a collection of songs from the world of experimental and ambient music, and re-imagine them as a series of piano & clarinet duets. 
 
Songs by Brian Eno, Robert Wyatt, Arthur Russell, Raymond Scott and Hans-Joachim Roedelius are all given new and unexpected life by the duo, Stephen Black of Welsh indie auteurs Sweet Baboo and jazz pianist Paul Jones. Part minimalist meditations, part bucolic chamber music, their album Selected Works 1: Clarinet and Piano is a balm to the soul, and was one of the highlights of last year's LP releases. They've recently been out on tour supporting Gruff Rhys to rapturous reviews, so we can't wait to hear what they sound like live. 
 
 
 
Support on the night comes from Powders, a new project from Them There Records / Preston Field Audio / Otherchannels' Carl Brown (electronics) and Yehoshua's Josh Horsley (cello). Their live sound is a melange of beatless techno, lush drones and minimalist string repetitions. 
 
Opening the evening is Rob Hill's solo ambient project Lorentzian - Rob promises a set of berlin-school style cosmische electronica, with hat tips to Tangerine Dream, Ash-Ra Tempel and Manuel Göttsching.
 
Saturday 2nd March 2019. 8pm start, for only £6. 
Available on the door, or in advance from See Tickets
