This event has been cancelled due to illness – we will be rescheduling later in 2019.
A talk and live performance at The Art House Cafe – Southampton’s wonderful nonprofit community-run arts centre. With percussionist Stephen Hiscock.
Afternoon talk info (2:30pm)
From ventriloquism and the earliest sound recordings to fantasies of time travel, Sarah Angliss talks about the uncanny in folklore and popular culture that have inspired her music. She’ll be joined by Hugo, her roboticised ventriloquist’s dummy head, as she explores the peculiar relationship between performers and their ‘knee pals’. This show will also include a live recording session on an original nineteenth century Edison phonograph.
Evening concert info (7:30pm)
An evening of electrical mysticism, as thereminist, historian and inventor Sarah Angliss brings you dreamlike music, featuring her phantasmagoria of music automata. Angliss and her machines perform live with Stephen Hiscock, the extemporising percussionist from Ensemble Bash. Robotic carillons, telephonic counterpoint and more are in the mix.
