Bebop Spoken There

Kenny Davern: "Now I like traditional jazz, but I don't like Dixieland per se, and the reason is that there's not enough ensemble playing or interplay." - (Melody Maker September 22, 1979)

CD Review: Space Flight – Sci-Fi

Anna Edgington (voice), James Mainwaring (saxophone), Tom Adams (guitar), Matt Postle (trumpet), Jakub Hader (cover design) & Radek Rudnicki (electronics & composition)
(Review by Russell)
Sci-Fi is a five track EP with a total running time of 17 minutes and 31 seconds. It is a multi-media collaboration (text readings and processed sounds) minus a key element – 3D visuals. The visuals form an integral part of the ‘live’ performance. The audio-only experience is, perhaps, like listening to a mono recording, the development of stereo an audiophile’s pipe-dream.

Space Flight’s founder – Radek Rudnicki – works with Jakub Hader (video programming and interactive art) to explore the interaction between live instrumentation and immersive 3D visuals. Their source material includes the works of Isaac Asimov, Philip K Dick and Stanislav Lem and data obtained from NASA. Anna Edgington (a contemporary classical vocalist) reads from texts, providing a consistent narrative across the recording. Rudnicki manipulates sounds generated by the musicians – electronica, hip-hop, industrial – and in a live setting Hader’s visuals provide the missing piece to the cosmic jigsaw.
Sci-Fi is a limited edition release on Wave Folder Records (www.spaceflight.eu).               
Upcoming dates.
13th June York, 3sixty, Festival of Ideas
