The Delta Saxophone Quartet plays Bowie and more
Following on from explorations of Soft Machine and King Crimson, the latest project from the Delta Saxophone Quartet follows in the imaginary footsteps of David Bowie during his Berlin years.
The first set explores and re-visits the period when Bowie experimented with the ambient world of Brian Eno, free improvisation and the minimalist works of the classical composer, Philip Glass.
This is followed by Project Flicks, a selection of classic short films from across the globe, with live accompaniment by DSQ. A stunning programme includes early silent films, newsreel footage from the Prelinger Archives (a collection of films relating to US cultural history) and the charming, Oscar winning Red Balloon. Plus there’s a brand new commission from Australia, based on the relationship of ‘Brian & Banksy’ (a budgie and a dog!).
Through the prism of live film, the DSQ has commissioned new scores which will engage, enthral and delight, opening up a freshness of discovery for inquisitive minds from age 8 to 108.
Featuring Christian Foreshaw, Pete Whyman, Tim Holmes and Chris Caldwell.
