Shepherds of Cats – Concert in the dark


16102015-dark-concert-posterb

Friday 16 October 2015 – 00:00 (3hrs event), FREE

Osrodek Postaw Tworczych ul. Dzialkowa 15, Wrocław, Poland

We would like to invite you for our special 3 hour concert on Friday, 16 October. We gather together to perform at night and in the dark. Get yourself warm cloth, sleeping mat and sleeping bag and possibly pillow. We start at midnight and it is important you get to OPT at 23:45 latest. Due to special character of this event, unfortunately late comers will not be allowed. There is limited space in the concert room, therefore there is a limited number of tickets available  – we recommend to get in touch directly via fanfarefanfare .

Look at the event rather as a sonoristic journey into unknown as we do not know how it unrolls over the night. Sounds reaching you from different directions, gentle electronic scratches behind your head, prolonged vibrations of gongs and tibetan bowls, chimes wishpering into your ears. Reeds, percussions, cello and other acustic instruments that happen to be there will be used in very unconventional way to create this night journey.

“We play improvised music, full of unexpected and newly created combinations of sounds, generated by variety of acustic instruments and daily objects. You will hear instruments such as cello, ethnic percussions, flutes, tibetan singing bowls, porcelain bells, clavinet or reeds. The music you will hear is very dynamic and colourful, you may discover meditative moments and then noise or some formal destruction. Sometimes we may think we get close to music concrete and sometimes we think of sonoristic experiments, redefining the use of instruments. Therefore, you may expect that cello will become a source of sound of an engine of a spinning washing machine and flutes sounds of chirping birds”

Shepherds of Cats:

Adam Webster: cello, voice

Aleksander Olszewski: ethnic percussions, flutes and other wind instruments

Jan Fanfare: calvinet D6, harmonica, voice

Dariusz Błaszczak: tibetan bowls, porcelain bells, less precised usable objects

SHEPHERDS OF CATS

Adam Webster: cello, voice, loops

Aleksander Olszewski: ethnic drums, reeds, flutes

Jan Fanfare – clavinet D6, harmonics, loops, voice

Intuitively bond trio, exploring the outer limits of good taste and pushing the limits of what should be considered as acceptable. Their compositions are created in real time, though time like good taste and other senses may be suspended. They play with no plan and the potential audience as well as musicians themselves may be higlhy surprised with the final outcome of the performance.
