Richard Scott/Helmut Lemke
Both previous visitors to the church Richard uses analogue synth and movement sensitive sound controllers while Helmut last time used incredibly long strings but has been known to utilise sax and multitape player in performance.

Colin Webster/Andrew Cheetham
London based sax player meets Manchester drummer. Last combination involved the pair at Fat Out Fest was explosive.


Ruth Jones/Natalie Speake/Stacey Johnstone/David Birchall
’50 Steps’ is an exploration of the process of walking the Pennine Way this performance in the church is part of research and development for this bigger project: a  series of structured movement and music improvisations that will happen throughout 2015, as a celebration of 50 years of the Pennine Way. Each of the 4 improvisational performances in 2015 will occur on arrival at a venue immediately after a section of the Pennine Way has been walked/experienced by both the dancers and musician. The artists will respond to the memory of space, movements, textures, structures within the environment – a  kinaesthetic experience expressed to create a visceral experience. 

The dancers/ physical artists are Ruth Jones, Natalie Speake and  Stacey Johnstone with sound artist/musician, David Birchall. 
The artists will return from walking a section of the Pennine Way near Marsden to present an improvisation.

Roro + Nacht und Nebel + Lumbers


Sunday 8th September 2013

RORO (Amsterdam)
Snare drum splendor all the way from the Netherlands. This guys sense of timing, timbre and humour all come together in a special way in his solo sets. Last seen in Manchester on the drumstool behind the likes of Dylan Carlson and Marshal Allen.

NACHT UND NEBEL (Nottingham)
This bearded lovely has been spotted over the years singing in Army of Flying Robots and drumming in Molloch. Tonight he presents via minidisc manipulations a set of cello sounds/processings (an instrument he is a trained in from boyhood)

LUMBERS (London)
Expect immersive and ethereal soundscapes from this guitarist who moonlights in Boduf Songs (Kranky) and presents his own works as a sound artist across the globe.

It’s a sunday so will start and finish on the early side. Gig will be on 3rd floor up stairs at the back of the restaurant.

£4/£5 in.

@ Club Space, 3rd Floor, Thomas Restaurant, Thomas Street, Manchester
