Boomkat Product Review:
30 year anniversary reissue of this mad battery of percussion, including guess player Z’ev (R.I.P.). Fans of everything from early electronics and concrète to real deal Indonesian gamelan and 23 Skidoo should lend their ears…
“Since 1983, Bow Gamelan Ensemble have inspired generations of artists with their radical practices and explosive performances. Charged with their individual virtuosity in performance art, avant-garde music and kinetic sculpture, their sound installations and performances are immersed in an orchestra of instruments made from scrap metal, electric motors, river barges and domestic objects including glass sheets, light bulbs and fireworks. A dissonance between 'noise' and 'meaningful utterance’ that will astonish the ears and ravish the imagination with unearthly magic.
Guests: Z'EV, Nicola Kate Heys, Thames Steam Launch Co., Eel Pie Marine.”
