Air Loom (Sarah Angliss & Stephen Hiscock) + Kemper Norton

No Longer Available

An evening of electrical mysticism, as thereminist and inventor Sarah Angliss brings you dreamlike music, featuring her phantasmagoria of music machines. Angliss and her machines perform live with Stephen Hiscock, extemporising percussionist from EnsembleBash. Robotic carillons, telephonic counterpoint and more are in the mix. In Air Loom, Angliss also introduces a pneumatic instrument, made from parts salvaged from an abandoned Welsh chapel organ.

Hear this debut of Angliss’ brand new set, following on from her 2017 album ‘Ealing Feeder’:

“The most inventive album I’ve heard in a long while…a testament to Angliss’s imagination and sheer musicality.” – Simon Reynolds, 4 Columns, New York

“A highly atmospheric and compelling listen…drawing on a dense skien of real pasts and imagined futures to talk lucidly and provocatively about the present...the record feels like a whole universe until itself, brimming with fresh propositions and new directions…Ealing Feeder is a subtle gem.” – Robert Barry, The Wire, London

“Revelatory…a phenomenal collection….exists in a preternatural state of eerie calm and alluring mystery.” – Dave Segal, The Stranger, Seattle

Kemper Norton will be performing a mixture of new and recent work inspired by the story of ‘Cruel Coppinger’, the semi-legendary Danish privateer and gang leader who terrorised the north Cornish coast in the late eighteenth century, as well as themes of family, transformation and physical vulnerability.

Kemper Norton

Kemper Norton uses digital and analogue hardware and software, acoustic instruments , field recordings and traditional song to explore neglected or original areas of landscape and folklore.

Of his 2017 release ‘Hungan’ The Wire wrote: "A flood of elemental, sensuous sound with limitless powers of time travel... A masterpiece of English music for the ages and for right now.”
