In the summer of 2016, to celebrate his sixtieth birthday veteran Edinburgh Fringe performer Mike Hatchard is planning to cycle from Land’s End to John o’Groats – with a piano!
Not a real piano (obviously) but nevertheless a fairly hefty electric one – quite an undertaking. Performing concerts along the way, the virtuoso musician and raconteur will cycle along the South Coast, before heading North to perform his Edinburgh Festival Show ‘ Beetroot Juice – How I went from being a street performer to concert musician – and back again.’
Mike will be raising funds for Children in Need. Donations can be made on the night or on: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Mike-Hatchard
FLOW is an interactive sensitive sonic space where sensors allow visitors to make interventions in the aural landscape, becoming integral players in their own experience of the piece.
The installation questions conventional notions of performance such as singular focus and the active/passive roles of both artist and spectator.
Visitors are encouraged to walk among the sensors and interact with both the computer generated sounds and each other to create a constantly shifting sonisphere within the space.
Psionics is the performance moniker of Pete Shepherd.
Pete has been composing, producing and performing music for the past 30 years. Psionics rejects popular music in favour of the avant gard, using sonic materials to create works of immersive experimental art.
Falmouth’s award-winning musical youth company is delighted to be staging Monty Python’s SPAMALOT. The Young Generation put on its very first performance in 1982 and this year will be the company’s 38th major musical production at the Poly. Book early to avoid disappointment, because Young Generation shows always sell out!
SILVER APPLES were formed in 1967, famously known for their pioneering usage of electronic music techniques within psychedelic rock. Having had such revered influence on so many PZYK artists of today, it would be fair to regard Silver Apples as nothing short of legendary. Sole remaining member Simeon Coxe III has toured extensively since reforming Silver Apples in 1996, bringing with him the notoriously primitive and captivating synthesizer known only as ‘The Simeon’.
This is Silver Apples first show in the region, and for fans of psych and electronic it’s something not to be missed.
