The Text Message

Conceived and delivered by the fantastic Leo Chadburn, The Text Message, tours a set of unusual settings of non-poetic text to music.  I, again on casio keyboard and pedals, with Lucy Railton on cello, (mostly) join Leo with this cool programme:

Peter ABLINGER : TIM piece
Leo CHADBURN : X Chairman Maos
Jenny WALSHE : A Folk Song Collection
Leo CHADBURN : Trainwreck / Raincheck 1

Travis JUST : Paul Pierce
Yannis KYRIAKIDES : Words and Song Without Words
Leo CHADBURN : Trainwreck / Raincheck 2

It's well worth reading Leo's own introduction to the music chosen here.

The tour goes here:

MK Gallery, Milton Keynes – Saturday 28th February
The Old Dentist, London – Friday 6th March
The Northern Charter, Newcastle – Saturday 7th March
The Scope, Brighton – Wednesday 18th March
