INDOOR: DOWN IS UP + BLOOD MOON PROJECT || 12.08.21
Thursday 12th April || 7pm start
Join us for an evening with Down is Up and Blood Moon Project.
Down Is Up are a London based group who perform the music of composer, instrument maker, and occasional couplet writer, Moondog. Born Louis Harden in America in 1916, Moondog’s music is known for both its accessibility and intricacy. A true auto-didact, Moondog taught himself the rules of classical tonal counterpoint and combined his knowledge with what he lovingly called the ‘heartbeat’: a strong steady pulse played by the composer on his self-invented instrument The Trimba. Eschewing the musical fashions of the time, from Serialism to Minimalism, Moondog created a music which was both backward and forward looking, strangely both conservative and progressive.
Blood Moon Project features Heloise Tunstall-Behrens, Luisa Gerstein and Tanya Auclair. Approaching composition as a game of musical consequences, the trio pass ideas around, sing together and manipulate sound worlds with pedal, effects, samples and moog. They commune with each other in a language that feels deep, extending their worlds inwards and outwords.
