Burning Harpsichord #3 (experimental music)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just an early reminder that our next Burning Harpsichord event is coming up at the Lemon Tree this September the 26th, so mark your calendars now!

Doors open at 7pm, music promptly at 7:30 and it's all for the low, low price of 6. There is also a free talk by Lee Patterson at Peacock Visual Arts (just around the corner) at 5pm before the show.

For this edition of the Burning Harpsichord, we have Owen Green opening the evening with a combination of found objects, interactive software and electronics, all combined in an improvised display that might include tickling and growls. Formerly based in London, Owen is now in Edinburgh where he continues to explore his own varied interests-from experimental hiphop to interactive electronics. Check him out here: http://www.owengreen.net/

Following Owen, will be Manchester based Lee Patterson. Lee is a sound artist with a growing reputation within the international arena. Lee approaches experimental music from a truly fresh perspective. Almost like a 19th century botanist, Lee hunts for microsonic environments using everything from contact mics to hydrophones, and improvises with these found sounds, combining them with live processes-not computer processing-but actual 'real' processing such as contact mic'd sparklers, boiling bottles, and found objects coaxed into audibility.

Lee will be giving a short talk on his practice at Peacock Visual Arts before the show at 5pm sharp. Free. Map here:http://www.peacockvisualarts.com/about-us/

All in all, another good one coming up. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

More info, and advanced tix available here: http://www.lemontree.org/music-lee-patterson.html

See you there,

Bill

How many Burning Harpsichords will there be? I caught the one with Keith Rowe, Noma et al and thought it was great. Who performed at the other?

Bums!

Bill if you read this then apologies for not making the performance. Enjoyed the talk at Peacock and was well up for it but a combination of my last minute change of plan. not telling the family, them having plans meant that I missed what I'm sure was great couple of performances!

Sometimes feels like I have retired from going to gigs!o_O

Hope it was a goodun:up:
