Orchestral Soundscapes In London
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Sep 18, 2013
Andrew Keeling's Orchestral settings of Robert Fripp soundscapes will be performed at London's Barbican on January 18th 2014. 

The rarity of such performances means this is really not a date to be missed for soundscape fans. The evening also features the stunning Twelve Hours of Sunset by the late, great David Bedford and composer Murray Gold, best known for his work on the long-running children's TV series, Dr.Who.

The album is available from Burning Shed and Inner Knot.
The Wine Of Silence orchestral soundscapes were last performed in Amsterdam in May 2012 and you can read Robert's view of the event and my take on the concert over on the blog.

Meanwhile, Andrew's guides to the music of King Crimson and Robert Fripp has been reviewed in the pages of Prog magazine.

You can order this and other guides directly from Spaceward as well as take a look at Andrew's various musical projects here and take a peek at Andrew's blog here.

The winner will be announced on Monday 16th September. You can find out more about the album and listen to a track over on the blog.

Travis & Tippett
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Sep 9, 2013
Theo Travis will also be playing with Soft Machine Legacy in London later this week. Alongside Theo and fellow SML band members John Etheridge guitar, Roy Babbington bass, John Marshall drums, will be one-time Crimson collaborator, pianist Keith Tippett.

Thurs 12 Sept and Fri 13 Sept. (8.30 pm)
Pizza Express, 10 Dean St, Soho, London W1
0845 6027017

Soft Machine Legacy is a reunion of 3 members of 70's pioneer band Soft Machine (John Etheridge, Roy Babbington, John Marshall) + reedsman Theo Travis. They have been together for 9 years (originally with Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean) and have produced 5 albums…the latest "Burden of Proof" is premiered tonight and has received glowing reviews. 

"Burden of Proof is to put it mildly absolutely exquisite. These are four musicians at the top of their game, not only as soloists, but as contributors to an actual band” – Peter Pardoe, Sea of Tranquility.org. 

Pianist Keith Tippett has been a national treasure and cornerstone of the improvising scene for 5 decades with an astonishing history of creativity. At last year's Frankfurt Jazz Festival, Keith joined Soft Machine for a triumphant concert. 
"Tippet's playing was dizzyingly virtuosic" (Decode Magazine).
"Power, Beauty and musicianship" (Chris Searle).

Theo Travis can also be heard discussing his work with Steven Wilson, Soft Machine Legacy and Robert Fripp in the latest edition of Podcasts From The Yellow Room.
