A Million Tiny Glitches (Work in progress)
1st June 2018
New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich
We’re going to be trying out some more new songs from our electronic musical about grief, in a kind of ‘gig-like’ setting. Our hosts are the lovely folks at Pulse, and this time we’re working with the fantastic Temi Wilkey — recently seen tearing it up in Jubilee at the Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester and Lyric Hammersmith. We’re not sure exactly what form these new tunes will take, but it’s a safe bet to say there’ll be beats, vocal effects and (judging by recent demos) some proper 1980s synth action. What’s more, the event’s only bloody ££FREE isn’t it?
Available to buy for £notmuchatall on Bandcamp
Here’s the first fruits of our recent Sura Medura residency in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka: a short album of electro tunes made entirely out of field recordings made on the island. Birds? Sure. Bread vans? Yes of course. Monkeys? You BET. Endless honking traffic? Don’t be daft.
Play it loud for your ears and maybe buy a small copy sure why not.
available to listen to online
Team MAYK: “Some colleagues in Canada do this thing called Thought Residencies. We talked to them about us trying it out in the UK. Do you want to do a Thought Residency? No pressure.”
Team Sleepdogs: “Er, ok. Why not? Sure.”
We’ve been recording occasional, brief thoughts over November. Check out the sound files here.
BBC Wales commissioned 5 short audio plays, each set in a specific location, to be mixed in 360° sound. Tim set his one down the pub, obvs. It’s directed by Mair Bosworth and stars Alice Lowe and David Hargreaves. It’s only 5 minutes long and it’s available on BBC iPlayer for a little while. Best on headphones. Besty best on headphones, in the pub.
The brilliant Mayfest Radio got us in to chat music and influences for their Music Is My Radar slot. In between us blathering on, there are some EXCELLENT tunes. I promise. And also some terrible Brazilian chips pop.
