A rare opportunity to see acclaimed jazz improv musicians and vocalists Ruth Goller / Skylla & Pete Wareham here at Sandy Hill Arts on Sat 17th September Please come and join us! Tickets £15/12 from www.sandyhillarts.co.uk/events
To finish the first day of our Mini Festival, our Planet Purbeck Festival ticketed evening event presents different acts who have also collaborated in the past.
- Ruth Goller is a highly acclaimed punk/jazz bassist and composer who has played with Shabaka Hutchings and performed with Sir Paul McCartney.
- Ruth's project SKYLLA sees her preform for us with celebrated vocalists Lauren Kinsella and Alice Grant. They will play a collection of bewitching compositions, featuring bass guitar harmonics in different tuning systems sparkling underneath other-worldly polyphonic songs. SKYLLA takes after the mythical three-headed sea monster of the same name, in that their music is both mysterious and sometimes dangerous – in its own intimate and unique way!
- Pete Wareham is a multi-award winning innovative saxophonist who has played with Mercury Prize nominated bands. He will present a solo show exploring synasthesia and improvisation (associative synasthesia is the ability to see colour when hearing music). Projecting colours onto a screen and dressed all in white so he is absorbed in colour, Pete creates multiverses of sound using saxophones and effects. Sometimes the changing colours direct the music, sometimes the music directs the changing colour.
- Pete and Ruth will also improvise together between the two sets!
- The evening will finish with Pete’s DJ set.
Tickets cost £15/£12 concession.
