I have often had a go at developing this Don MacLean song. “Buy the Waters of Babylon” seemed an interesting ‘play on words’ seeing as much of the farming in the area + the Dead Sea Salt farming has meant that the rivers are less reliable and thus life is more precarious because of the intense farming (reference to Zion) Sink holes appearing in large areas of uninhabitable land around the Dead Sea. Babylon . the banks for the Euphrates is however straddling the Countries of Syria and Iraq.. of which i weep for.
Tuesdays Post : Live Progressive Ambient are delighted and honoured to present the legendary band that is White Noise at The Muse Gallery, Portobello Rd.
The White Noise cult classic album An Electric Storm (1969) originally featured David Vorhaus with Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson of BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
This month at The Muse David Vorhaus will be joined by his current band member Mike Painter.
David will perform using his custom built kaleidophon.
Also featured this January is Thomas Stone on Bassoon, samplers and activated percussion.
Exploring themes of ritual, presence and memory Thomas creates his immersive soundscapes using contrabassoon, samplers and activated percussion.
Blurring the boundaries between electronic and acoustic sources to generate moments of austere, fragile beauty from simple motifs, long tones, gentle dissonances and cyclic pulses.
