Dan Valentine, Third City, Kinder Meccano and Danny Saul - live at the Continental recap

April 3, 2017


On Friday March 31, UCLan Music and Preston Jam presented Danny Saul, Kinder Meccano, Third City and Dan Valentine at the New Continental, Preston.

Danny Saul is an experimental musician, performer and composer from Manchester, UK. Recently awarded a PhD in electroacoustic composition from the University of Manchester, Danny works within areas of electroacoustic composition and laptop performance. His works have been performed internationally including performance at the NYC Electroacoustic Festival 2014, the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2013 and the International Computer Music Conference 2014 in Athens. He has toured throughout the UK, Europe, USA and Japan.

Kinder Meccano is Vitalija Glovackyte (LT) and Michael Cutting (UK). With acoustic instruments, old tape machines, and self-made devices, Kinder Meccano give immersive performances somewhere between noise, deconstructed pop, vintage arcade game sounds, and analogue re-imaginings of Japanese glitch music.

“A world of hidden machine music, amplified by homemade pick-ups, shining 16-bit threads of melody and zen-like process music, mingling performance and playfulness.” - The Skinny

Third City (Jon Aveyard and Dan Wilkinson) formed from the embers of an intended one-off electroacoustic improv show in Preston. Combining samples and the processing of live audio using sound sources such as voice, violin, keyboard, hand drum, tuned percussion and found sound objects, the group present improvisations that use prepared structures yet retain the precariousness of free improv.

Below highlights some of the performance by BA Music's Third City.  Thanks go to Holly Hughes, Ryan Kerr and Matt Billington for taking pictures and archiving the event.
