Kingston University Stylophone Orchestra, Jay Chakravorty + Josh Semans
Playing the Future – unlock your mind and drift away on waves of sounds, emotions and melodic hooks. This afternoon encounter an ensemble of Stylophones, the siren call of the ondes Martenot, and a composer juxtaposing the old with the new using the musical palette of piano, electronics & strings. The curiously eerie yet poignant sounds of these two unusual 20th Century instruments have inspired film makers, musicians and pioneers such as David Bowie, Olivier Messiaen, Alfred Hitchcock, Gerry Anderson and Radiohead. Join us and step into a retro-futurist utopia of sound, texture and ideas, full of hopes and dreams.
