Amphis – Wysing Forest live performance

Here’s a video of me performing Amphis in Wysing Forest – the location that gives my new album its name. I hope you enjoy.

At the beginning of the video you can hear James’ dog snuffling around near the microphones, and at 3.39 you can hear his tags rattling as he runs past the mics again. #funfacts #dogs

I’m sure that by now you’ve all checked out James Holden’s FUCKING AMAZING new album, and I’m sure you’ve all got your head around the fact that Dan Snaith is just seriously great, and if you’re reading this on my website then you probably think I’m ok too.  If that all rings true AND you happen to be in London around November, then this is for you.  x L

Wysing

So, for the last few weeks I’ve been living deep within the Cambridgeshire countryside at Wysing Arts Centre as part of their artist in residence scheme.  I have set up a small studio in a building made of straw and stone, and have been working on new compositions and performance strategies.

On SATURDAY I’m going to be doing a small performance of new works / work in progress, also performing will be Sam Willis from the band Walls and a new text work by writer/performer Patrick Coyle will be included somehow into the proceedings.  The performance is from 6 – 8pm, and it is free.  It will take place in the Amphis building (see picture above) at Wysing.  There might even be some mulled wine.  You are welcome to come if you can manage to get there.

This is going to be a unique performance, very different from my usual club-focused gigs.  I will be presenting my music it’s rawest form.
