Over the last four years Cold Bath Street have developed into a grown into a musical force. Their work refuses to be pigeonholed. No two shows are the same. Audiences can only agree that whatever ‘it’ is ‘it’ is an amazing journey and that you have to be there to witness it. Last year CBS worked alongside Soft Machine’s Gary Boyle, Jazz North’s Stephen Grew, released their first album and headlined the Friday of Futuresound Festival.
To coincide with the release of the group’s second album “Sound Research Rebellion” they are staging a one-off show at Alston Observatory where they will work in response to visuals from artist Anne Fox and the staff and telescopes of the observatory. The audience and the music will journey through a cosmos in which CBS tip their hats to Pink Floyd, Bowie, Can and Sun Ra.
Tickets for the event are £10 which gets you a copy of the vinyl album, ticket for the gig and transport to and from the university’s main campus. Due to space restrictions at the planetarium the number of tickets is strictly limited. We apologise in advance to anyone who is unable to secure tickets.
The work of Cold Bath Street is part of a larger initiative within UCLan that is helping cement an institutional reputation for improvised and interdisciplinary work. In June this year the university stages the Preston Jazz and Improvisational Festival. The university also work closely with the www.improvisersnetwork.co.uk
