An evening of dark improv
Subject description: Bishop's House, Sheffield, UK 05.12.14
Calendar Event: December 5, 2014
Music from Bishops' House presents another evening of thoughtful, introspective music, featuring:
Lost Garden are a dark ambient (or pick your own genre!) duo performing quasi-improvised instrumental pieces. They are Andy Peake on keyboards/FX (ex Comsat Angels with whom he released 13 albums, countless singles and toured the world many times) and Nick Robinson (ex Dig Vis Drill, Typhoon Saturday and 20 years of solo looping). They played together in the 80s when Nick joined the Comsat Angels (briefly) and intermittently since, but have finally found the time and the energy to follow our own musical bent. Their debut CD is released soon on English Electric Records. The two musicians mesh beautifully and compare the performance process to “painting with sound” where dynamics and timbre are key elements.
Peter Challoner is an electronic music composer from the UK, born, raised in Nottingham in the heart of Central England. He is not what you would class as an orthodox musician, having had no formal musical training, and the fact that music, although being a major force in his life, for most of his life, is only a supplementary activity to a career as an architectural technician. It has long been stated that there are strong links between music, architecture, and visual arts in general. ‘My job is creative, a design process from a concept form of an idea into a finished piece of construction, and it's the same approach with my music'
Modulator ESP: Improvised looped electronic dronescapes, ambient noise voids that occasionally lapse into strange melodies.
