This is what Rod Warner wrote: '...Just got back from headquarters and sipping a long drink before bed - but I wanted to upload a couple of shots from tonight’s gig - featuring the Murmurists from Northampton. Comprising: Roger Bullen – drums & bent drums, electronics/Anthony Donovan – 6 string bass, keyboard, laptronics, contact mic, electronics/Lee Mapley – guitarsynth, bent drums, electronics. The set they played was awesome - over an hour of a shifting soundscape generated from their large armoury of instruments that was cinematic in its range and ambition… When they finished I looked up at the clock and was surprised to note the time - as we were totally immersed in the music and nothing had dragged - as many improv gigs do, mes braves, let’s be honest. More later - for now: a big thanks to Anthony, Lee and Roger for a great night - and they will be returning for the Sporadicfest in May: more information on this as it all develops but we intend to go from midday to midnight with yet another Sporadic extravaganza so mark diaries accordingly…'. Lovely.
