Zooplankton / Mike Page B2B Andy Butler
SATURDAY 10 February 8pm
@ "Create Norwich", The Old Church Hall, The street, Trowse, NR14 8SX Norwich, Norfolk
Presented by Plink Plonk

Mike Page B2B Andy Butler:
Maker of unimaginable synthesisers and sound devices, Mike's explorative approach to electronic music making is truly unique. Often incorporating found and domestic objects Mike's systems produce unpredictable and immersive meditative drones which one can easily get lost in.
I'll be, to some extent, filling in the gaps while Mike reconfigures his synths, B2B just means that essentially we'll be swapping over and playing solo quite a lot, with a so far unspecified anmount of crossover time ...but let's see how it all turns out. Expect fragmentation, and deconstruction of loops and more abstraction than usual.
Zooplankton are Martin Scaiff on keys, Jesse Barrett (Mammal Hands) on drums and percussion and Steve Mynott on guitar; a Norfolk based trio that perform turbulent improvised music, anchored to a bed of free jazz and prog. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear this lesser-spotted beast.
Both sets will be accompanied by two Norfolk based visual artists to present a unique audiovisual experience. Digital artist Marian Saunders will be providing her unique responsive graphic imagery to accompany Zooplankton.
Watch out for more livelooping at St Margarets - The Church of Art, St Benedicts Street, Norwich.
I often play livelooping sets at public views.

...and it's always worth dropping in to check out the art, regardless of whether there's loops running.
Available for hire, with high quality pa systems capable of dealing with events up to about 300 attendees, or
of being as discrete as an acoustic instrument.
Or looking for something different, I'm now able to present a 15-16th Century music on the renaissance lute, and/or
Eastern inspired improvisations on Turkish Saz.
