Sarah Gail Brand/ Mark Sanders Duo || Astral Social Club (livestream)
January 30 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
Due to circumstances this event is a live stream, but don’t let that put you off, this one will be beaming out at you in glorious HD multi-camera nonsense-vision direct from Wharf Chambers in Leeds, and is free to anyone who would like to watch it. If, however, you are able to make a donation (which will be split between the performers and running costs of the venue) you can do so here.

The natural meeting place of trombone and drum – these two have been free improvising together for long enough to develop the kind of telepathic link displayed by the most seasoned improv-nutcases, and coax an ecstatically bewildering array of sounds and textures from the simplest implements. An eye-opening exploration of brass tubes, wooden cylinders, human relationships and quasi-psychic communication: playful, serious, gentle and furious. Still not convinced? Well, between them, they’ve played with pretty much all your favourites – Phil Minton, Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, John Edwards, Lol Coxhill, John Tilbury, Rhodri Davies – it’s a list that literally will not stop, and hopefully gives you an idea of the calibre of bodies we’re talking about. Miss at your peril!

Your man Neil Campbell out of that Vibracathedral Orchestra, UK Muzzlers, etc. drags his Astral Social Club project through the gutter to generate a special set of cosmic filth and decay for your delectation. A fleeting chance to elevate your mind before the plague consumes all around you.
