Bowie, Berlin & Beyond + Project Flicks


Delta Saxophone Quartet
Chris Caldwell
Pete Whyman
Tim Holmes
Graeme Blevins

Following explorations of Soft Machine and King Crimson, the latest project from the Delta Saxophone Quartet follows in the imaginary footsteps of David Bowie and his Berlin Years. The music explores and re-visits the period when Bowie experimented with the ambient world of Brian Eno, free improvisation, and the minimalist works of the classical composer, Philip Glass.

Project Flicks presents a selection of short films accompanied by music performed live by DSQ. The International films chosen cover a wide period of classic cinema, from the early black and white movies, newsreel footage from the ‘Prelinger Archives’, an Oscar winning Parisian classic, and a brand new commission from Australia, based on the relationship of ‘Brian & Banksy’ (a budgie and a dog!). Through the ‘prism’ of live film, the DSQ has commissioned new scores which will engage, enthral and delight, opening up a freshness of discovery for inquisitive minds from age 8 to 108.

Pre-concert talk 7pm

Bowie, Berlin & Beyond

Tonight’s pre-concert talk brings together the creative trio of Dr David Lancaster, Chris Caldwell and Kevin Appleby (composer, performer and promoter). The three ‘elements’ will have an opportunity to explore how the seeds and essence of new projects are nurtured and encouraged to eventually find form and flourish on the concert platform.

There’s one vital ingredient missing here, you, the audience. Please come and join us for this exciting insight into Bowie, Berlin & Beyond.
