Shallal We Dance?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Oct 31, 2012

Shallal Dance Theatre, of which Robert Fripp is a patron, have a performance  in Cornwall next month.



Thus sayeth the blurb:
Shallal Dance Theatre comes to Launceston Town Hall with Doorways, an entertaining compilation of highlights from their successful summer site specific Cornish Doorways shows, featured at Godolphin House, Mousehole and Gyllyngdune Gardens,Falmouth.
 
Shallal is a longstanding inclusive community dance theatre company open to all and their aim is to challenge who can perform and how by providing a performance space for anyone in the community. Their work is based on natural dance and theatre improvisation.  Shallal's productions are created by the members of the company, who work collaboratively to devise performances which are built from improvisations and ideas that the participants all contribute during the rehearsal period. A range of visiting artists including Rory McDermott, poet Sally Crabtree, film-maker Barbara Santi and composer Roger Pinsent also work with the company on this creative process giving access to a wide variety of skills, media and ideas.
Doorways is a family friendly entertainment as lively, imaginative and varied as its creators.  From crows to clowns, mysterious white ladies to mythical sea creatures, to romantic duets, there is something for everyone.
Doorways will be performed at Launceston Town Hall on Friday 23rd November at 1.30pm. Tickets on the door £6.00 (concessions £4.00)

Fripp & Eno Live In Paris
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 25, 2014
Live In Paris. the long-awaited archive live album from Fripp & Eno is now available for pre-order.

Live In Paris 28.05.1975 will be released on September 15th and can be obtained from Inner Knot for US costumers and Burning Shed for UK and Europe.

 

The subject of many poor quality bootlegs, this concert - one of only a handful undertaken by Fripp & Eno - is routinely described as Ďlegendaryí.

Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, itís easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now and perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers and the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts and general confusion.

Thanks to the discovery and restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible - with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM - to isolate, de-noise and match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

* CDs 1 & 2 feature the complete concert with full audio restoration synched with the original studio backing loops as used in the performance.

* CD3 features the backing loops without overdubs.

* CD3 also features the reversed loop for Wind on Water as used on the Evening Star album.

* CD3 also features Later On, edited from No Pussyfooting & originally the b side of Enoís first solo single Seven Deadly Finns.

With the exception of the last two items this is the same concert that was first made available for download via DGMLive.

Travis & Fripp's Discretion
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 25, 2014
There's a new collection of material from Travis & Fripp coming out.



Featuring material drawn from concerts in Cornwall, Barcelona and Rome, Discretion is the fourth Travis & Fripp album.

The album is set for release on 15th September and can be ordered from Inner Knot for USA and Burning Shed for Europe.

Recorded to hi-res multi-track with minimal studio overdubs prior to being mixed down to hi-res stereo, the album is presented in a two disc CD/DVD-A format in a digi-pack at a special price, enabling the music to be heard, as intended, in hi-res audio form on the DVD-A (playable on all dvd players).

Travis & Fripp's music moves from the small-scale and intimate to an epic grandeur filled with blissful reverie and, on occasion, mournful reflection.

A masterclass in empathy, invention and vision, the album features two additional audio tracks previously only available on video (including the stunning Rhapsody On The Theme From Starless, an improvisation based on one of the most beloved King Crimson tracks).
