Bristol New Music 2018
Important concert update: This event has moved to Arnolfini.
Using theremin, robotic carillon and other instruments, Sarah Angliss performs highlights from Ealing Feeder, her steely and unsettled love letter to the city which explores London folklore past and present. “A highly atmospheric and compelling listen…brimming with fresh propositions and new directions”, Robert Barry, The Wire. “The most inventive album I’ve heard in a long while…a testament to Angliss’ imagination and sheer musicality”, Simon Reynolds, New York. Tom Richards demonstrates his mini Oramics machine, a drawn-sound synthesiser designed by electronic pioneer and BBC Radiophonic workshop co-founder Daphne Oram (1925-2003). Through his research into Oram and her machines, Richards has built this unique and previously unfinished synthesiser from Oram’s original notes and diagrams. Tom and Sarah will both perform their own graphic scores composed for this device.
