Machine Music / Music Machines

We have confirmed that our Machine Music concert will go ahead at the Exeter Phoenix on 6th July this year. More information will follow. There will be pieces by Simon Belshaw and if you want to know more about his Music Machines then you can read about them here. In the meantime there will be a performance of Music Machine 1 by Get Rich Quick as part of the Vibraphonic Festival at Exeter Phoenix on 19th March. Music Machine 29 will feature in the surround studio at the Sonoroties festival in Belfast 27th April - 4th May 2014 and four Music Machines currently form part of the playlist on Sound Introversion Radio.

So, Exeter Contemporary Sounds drew breath, started a Family Concert Series (Earworms), was overwhelmed by the response.... and in the meantime has been having a succession of great ideas for concerts and other kinds of musical events.

We'll bring 'Back There On Earth' to The Flavel, Dartmouth on Friday 9th May. When we conceived this programme, The Flavel was recommended as a great venue for this programme. If you missed our previous performances, do come along on 9th May. Book tickets from The Flavel Box Office: http://theflavel.org.uk

We're also working on a new programme of 'Machine Music' for our audience at Exeter Phoenix in June or July this year. Watch this space for an intriguing event, featuring our versions of 'Kraftwerk' tracks and music inspired, and even generated by, machines.

At last, we'll perform our first 'Earworms' concert on Sunday 4th May. We've had a lot of fun putting this programme together, featuring, as it will, the Star Wars theme music ('May the 4th be with you'), as well as a chunk of Steve Reich's Different Trains and Simon Belshaw's Between the Moon and the Earth. We'll put up more of the programme for your anticipation, soon. For tickets contact Northcott Theatre's box office: 01392 493493 https://www.exeternorthcott.co.uk/book-online.
