We’re collaborating on a couple of projects that you can see out in the world soon:

Comeback Special by Greg Wohead
Shoreditch Town Hall, 17 – 20 May 2017
[sound design and music arrangement by Timothy X Atack]

Jam sessions, patter with a Southern drawl, big dance numbers, and a bit of sweat: this is a re-enactment of Elvis Presley’s 1968 Comeback Special. But not how you might expect.

and

salt. by Selina Thompson
Southbank Centre, 15 – 16 July 2017
[Sound design by Tanuja Amarasuriya & Timothy X Atack]

Two artists got on a cargo ship, and retraced one of the routes of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle – from the UK to Ghana to Jamaica, and back. This show is what they brought back. A performance encompassing grief, ancestry, home, forgetting and colonialism.

and if you missed it last year:

The Stroma Sessions

available on BBC iPlayer until November 2017

Tim’s supernatural drama, The Stroma Sessions was up for a couple of BBC Audio Drama Awards, so they’ve put the 5-episode version back up on iPlayer for any of y’all who didn’t catch it over Halloween.

It’s about a new music ensemble who travel to the abandoned Scottish island of Stroma, to record an album — and discover they are not alone. Contains weirdness and darkness and wind.  Plug in yer ears why not.

Commissioned by BBC Radio 3, produced by Afonica and starring Rebekah Staton, Valene Kane and Colin Salmon amongst others, with original music by Danny Norbury.

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.

It’s here for your ears, on Mixcloud

You can also treat your ears to the CD/EP that goes alongside The Bullet And The Bass Trombone, by purchasing a copy for a few UK quids here.
