An evening of electrical mysticism, as thereminist and inventor Sarah Angliss brings you dreamlike music, featuring her phantasmagoria of music machines. Angliss performs live with Stephen Hiscock, percussionist of EnsembleBash and vocalist Sarah Gabriel. Robotic carillons, telephonic counterpoint and a new instrument made from the salvaged parts of a Welsh chapel organ are in the mix.
Kate Arnold conjures a startling array of sounds with hammered dulcimer, violin, vocals, live looping and ‘glitchy electronica’; darkly comic original songs, extraordinary reinterpretations of traditional folk material, and elusive soundscapes that are ethereal, sinister, and joyous by turns.
She also fronts ‘punk baroque’ ensemble Fear of the Forest, and has worked with artists such as Lisa Knapp, Daemonia Nymphe, Doudou Cissoko and Rose McDowall.
