The Orchestra Pit
Scaledown #122
(Friday 30th September 2016)

It makes sense, dear children of scaledown, to pop down and go up the rickety stairs, across the carpeted landing and into the arms of scaledown musical warmth who beam artist radiance in no particular order:

RAEPPEN - Ræppen is the work of a Nomadic travelling Shaman who travels the planet playing ritualistic drones. When the ritual is performed the Shaman will use hypnotic rhythms to develop a trance like state to be at one with the spirit world.

BIRDSONG - "Two naked instruments surviving by their own wit and guile, with no artificial support". Neil Metcalfe (flute) + RamaShah (guitar).

JUDE COWAN MONTAGUE - Jude's work as an archivist at Reuters for ten years has led to a complex output of improvisation, poetry and art. She is proudly presenting her new book, The Wires, 2012 which is an extended sequence responding to Reuters news agency stories of 2012.

LEFT HAND CUTS OFF THE RIGHT - Robbie Judkins' outlet for exploratory methods and composition. Otherworldliness, drones, twitches and oddities . Robbie is also the creator of Animal Sounds (Resonance FM) and a great Scaledown favourite.

RANTIPOLES - promising skiffle, comedy, off-beat entertainment with cello, clarinet acoustic guitar and percussion.... expect a veritable riot of sound from these Scaledown debutantes.

ROTTEN BLISS - defying expectations of the cello through experimental extended techniques subjected to extreme FX processing to produce an unsettling sensual voyage through brooding atmospheric noisescapes, surreal and tender lyrical fantasies sung over sparse bass riffs and disorienting interactions between cello, visuals and samples.

As ever, it is FREE! Come and hear/see the scaled down performances. DOORS OPEN AT 7.30 PM of the clock for an 8pm start. FIFTEEN MINUTES PER ACT! Come along to:
