Alabaster - Bunty - Cosmo - Sonic Gumbo
Adventures in music from three visionaries for one night only. With projections by visual artist Jomotopia.
Ruthessly creative saxophonist and spoken word artist Alabaster dePlume joins Avant - pop vocal looping pioneer Bunty Looping and internationally acclaimed Multi- instrumentalist and found - sound obsessive Cosmo Sheldrake
Multi- dimensional artist Kassia Zermon aka Bunty is a unique force best known for pioneering underground experimental vocal loop shows and fronting UK leading Dub act Resonators. Bunty's distinctive voice has been championed by likes of Rodigan, Mark Lamar and BBC 6 taste makers Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne. Hard to fit into any box this lady's influences are huge, bringing her Morrocan Londoner roots to create her own blend of raw avant – pop music. Bunty's powerful avant- pop orchestra has been compared to FKA Twiggs and Tune-Yards. Combining the rawness of early M.I.A with the lyrical espionage of Tom Waits and a voice that can sound as sweet as Ella Fitzgerald (on Acid).
‘Sheldrake is a craftsman: a multi-instrumentalist composer, loop station maestro, beatboxer and vocalist extraordinaire; he’s an academic in the most complimentary sense. Words used to describe his early output – words like ‘quirky’ and ‘whimsical’ – do a disservice to the talents of a producer so qualified’ The Skinny
