307 The Slowest Lift, Laura Jurd & Chris Batchelor + ORE

1 June @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Daylight Music returns for the summer with a fanfare, starting the season with an array of experimental brass-themed acts.

West Yorkshire’s The Slowest Lift (Sophie Cooper and Julian Bradley), present a new chapter in the long-running tradition of radical English music duos. Cooper (an accomplished solo performer and collaborator) and Bradley (from frequent VHF delinquents Vibracathedral Orchestra) play a kind of gentle post-industrial psychedelia, a ghostly tapestry of earthen whirring, phantasmal resonances, sheets of textured skree and touching, hazy vocals. The songs are a blend of straightforward performance and eccentric bricolage, with rude electronic interjections sitting comfortably alongside delicate guitar and keyboard melodies.

Laura Jurd and Chris Batchelor will perform as a duo. Jurd is a London-based, award-winning trumpet player and composer, currently a BBC New Generation Artist for 2015-2017. An active improviser playing regularly in the UK and more recently in Europe, Laura specialises in writing for hand-picked musicians in her own projects and ensembles. Her band Dinosaur has performed throughout the UK and Europe.

ORE is the drone, doom brass sound of tuba player Sam Underwood and baritone horn / trombone player Beck Baker. The pair create weighty dronescapes that evolve at a glacial pace. ORE’s sound rewards the patient listener as their dissonant tones rub together; enhanced by the use of two custom-built resonant gong speakers. The audience slowly becomes awash with the sound of ORE.
