An evening of electrical mysticism, as thereminist and inventor Sarah Angliss brings you dreamlike music, featuring her phantasmagoria of music machines. Angliss performs live with Stephen Hiscock, percussionist of EnsembleBash and vocalist Sarah Gabriel. Robotic carillons, telephonic counterpoint and a new instrument made from the salvaged parts of a Welsh chapel organ are in the mix.
“The most inventive album I’ve heard in a long while…a testament to Angliss’s imagination and sheer musicality.”
Simon Reynolds, 4 Columns, New York
“A highly atmospheric and compelling listen…drawing on a dense skien of real pasts and imagined futures to talk lucidly and provocatively about the present…the record feels like a whole universe until itself, brimming with fresh propositions and new directions…Ealing Feeder is a subtle gem.”
Robert Barry, The Wire, London
“Revelatory…a phenomenal collection….exists in a preternatural state of eerie calm and alluring mystery.”
Dave Segal, The Stranger, Seattle
Sarah Angliss is a composer, automatist and live performer whose music explores resonances between English folklore and early notions of sound and machines. Sarah’s particularly known for her skills on theremin and recorder and for the robotic instruments she designs and builds to work with her on stage. Sarah’s an eclectic musician – an electroacoustic composer and robotic artist, formally trained in Baroque and Renaissance Music, who cut her teeth as a performer in English folkclubs. Sarah also composes for live film scores and theatre, most recently for Eugene O’Neill’s expressionist play ‘The Hairy Ape’ (at The Old Vic, London, and Park Avenue Armory, New York, directed by Richard Jones).
