A.R.C. Live At Last

A.R.C. Live At Last

Barry, Saul and I are making our live début as ARC at long last.  Well that’s what I thought until last night at this event when Saul reminded me that we’d played one of Barry’s Listen… nights in the Menagerie a couple of years back.
But still, that was a long time ago and we’ve changed our approach and our aesthetic quite a bit since then so I’m still thinking of this in terms of début.

ARC are an improvising trio based around drums, double bass, bass guitar and handmade electronics.

We’ve played in public two three times before. The first second time was as a three-piece to demonstrate the work of ceramicist Andrew Cooke:
Here’s some YouTube footage of that event.
Not a full ARC gig, as we were there to explore the instruments Andrew had made.

The second third time was just Saul and I, performing at an art happening (it really was) called Fresh Meat in the Crescent Arts Centre.
Barry was performing at a festival in Brazil at the time but he was there in spirit in the guise of a light-controlled synth right at the front of the stage.
So, again, not a full ARC gig.

This time though, we’ll be kicking it old-school.  Barry will be providing instructional/motivational projections and video and we’ll be accompanied by Martin Byrne, one of Belfast’s more prolific sonic artists.

So yeah, roll up roll up for ARCLight at OpenSourceNI, 3-5 Commercial Court, Belfast from 2-3pm on Sunday 4th of May 2014.

I play bass, I cook, I look out the window. Sometimes I prefer wondering what's out there to going out and looking. But not all the time. I only recently learned that leaving two spaces after a full stop is obsolete.
