The Glove That Fits and Rare And Strange Instruments come together to present a brand new series that explores the bizarre, unusual and rare instruments from around the globe.
The series will officially launch at the beginning of next year.
For Octobers event, we invite the found of Rare and Strange instruments found, Nicholas Bras, to introduce the concept with a live performance and Q&A alongside Addictive TV: Orchestra of Samples.
Addictive TV: Orchestra of Samples w/ Nicholas Bras (live)
A live project creating new music from sampling hundreds of musicians we recorded around the world.
Taking recording equipment with them on nearly every gig for years, they've filmed hundreds of musicians from countries, amongst many others, Brazil and Mexico to Senegal in West Africa, across Europe, China and Kazakhstan in Asia and even Egypt during the revolution.
An exploration into serendipity and musical probability about bringing people together who wouldn’t normally perform together, and more to the point their instruments which wouldn’t normally be heard together.
No tracks were written beforehand, the samples would dictate the direction in the studio, no musicians played in a pre-defined key, they all just improvised and our creative process was simply to just see which samples worked together.
