(NOTE THE EARLY START TIME FOR THE PRE-SHOW DISCUSSION)
20 Years to the day since my first proper solo gig, This extra special show will feature a solo set and an Illuminated Loops set with synaesthetic visual artist Poppy Porter, who paints what she sees while I play. We don't get to do these shows all that often, so it's a real treat to bring Poppy to Birmingham for this gig!
What's perhaps EVEN more exciting is that there'll be pre and post show audience discussions that I'll be recording for my ongoing PhD about my audience's experience of improvisation. You'll be emailed a consent form before the show for your contributions to be used anonymously, and there'll also be the option to just come to the gig and not be a part of the discussions. The show will be filmed, but you'll be asked whether or not you want to be identifiable in any public video that comes out. (The reason for the filming is that there'll be the option after the show for some people to watch it again and talk through their experience of the gig, as part of the research).
So after you buy your ticket, keep an eye out for an email with the consent form and a short questionnaire attached (so that I can keep track within the research of who's been to my gigs before, who are subscribers and who's new to this!) - For this reason, there may not be any tickets on the door (it may well sell out anyway, judging by the pre-sale interest!) so get your tickets early!
Early bird tickets also come with a free download of my new album The Arctic Is Burning.
