Here’s the update about next week’s event at the Soup Kitchen in Manchester (England, not Vermont). First, it’s being presented in partnership with Red Bull, which is great, and means it will be easier for everyone to stay up late to enjoy the many events that are planned. Of course the film is being shown, and I’ll be there to introduce and do a QA after….but wait, there’s more!
Event organizer Jon Kraus has put together a scintillating lineup that includes a live music showcase paying tribute to the work of Raymond Scott featuring:
THE MANHATTAN RESEARCH TRANSFER PROJECT feat: GRAHAM MASSEY (808 STATE / TOOLSHED / MASSONIX) DENNIS JONES (HUMBLE SOUL) HENRIETTA SMITH ROLLA (SISTERS OF TRANSISTERS) One off exclusive collaboration set that will be re-interpreting choice selections as well as creating new compositions that will capture the madcap energy & moods of such favourites as ‘the Bass-line generator’ ‘Baltimore Gas & Electric Co’ ‘Lightworks’ & much more.
ILLUM SPHERE (FAT CITY, 3024, TECTONIC) & KIDKANEVIL (FIRST WORD) – Melonball bounce set Red Bull Academy London 2010 participants Illum Sphere & Kidkanevil will be putting on a one off show consisiting of brand new material sampling the sounds of Scott – some of which will be bespoke for the occassion, as well as some tracks from the forthcoming Kidkanevil beat tape titled ‘Tokyorkshire Research Inc.’ Visuals will be provided by the legend they call e-man!! Another one off exclusive set for this event!
DEMDIKE STARE (MODERN LOVE) Aka Miles Whitaker (Pendle Coven / MLZ) & Sean Canty (Finders Keepers / Haxan) will be unsettling the proceedings with their chilling take on deep Dub via Anatolia & the dankest strains of Concrete / Library music.
This event is shaping up as a really big one, on the Facebook page over 135 people are planning on attending as of tonight, with another 194 maybes, so I’m totally psyched about being there. And if you’re in the Manchester area hope you will be too!
