THE WHITE HOTEL PRESENTS:

2000AD

By Austin Collings

 

A work of fragmented and demented musical-theatre. Sci-Fi Salford. We can’t always tell the whole story but we’ll try. Warning: contains language. Then, into the night, we’ll prove once again that we are completely and openly a mess. The theatre doesn’t close until you’re seeing stars.

SAMARBETA PRESENTS BBC PHILHARMONIC ENSEMBLE X EX EASTER ISLAND HEAD X LAURA CANNELL

 

Sounds From the Other City (SFTOC) & Samarbeta are pleased to announce the final part of the trilogy between Liverpool based trio Ex Easter Island Head (EEIH) and the BBC Philharmonic. In the past two years at SFTOC the trio have composed 2 brand new pieces of music and performed them alongside an ensemble of the BBC Philharmonic, including a harpist, trumpeter, string duos and a double bass in both Vimto Gardens & Salford Cathedral. This year sees the trio join forces with musician Laura Cannell and a new selection of musicians from the BBC Philharmonic, including a multi-wind pipe instrumentalist, a trumpeter and two violin players. Cannell, who specialises in playing fiddle, overbowed fiddle, double recorders and other rarefied wind instruments, draws upon ancient transcendental and earthly musics and will be working with both EEIH & BBC Philharmonic to compose a site specific composition together that will be performed in the surroundings of Salford Cathedral at this years Sounds From the Other City Festival.
