A magical night of vintage moogs, gifted musicians, Indian street food, psychedelic light shows, shadow puppets and delicious ales await you at CdA next Friday when we welcome a host of wonderful guests through the doors to celebrate summer solstice.
A Midsummer Moog will be an enchanted evening beginning upstairs in the cyclorama with a concert of live improvised music, hypnotic Indian drones, vintage moog synthesizers and dark fairy tales from the Sawtooth Collective.
Curated by musician Jimi Clancy, this concert re-unites performers, Eva Eden, Jason Kalidas who first joined forces over ten years ago from the fringe live music scene in Brixton along with Rob Jenkins and sitar player Garima.
The concert features three main sets with the individual artists collaborating live in each other’s performances. The walls of the cyclo will be bathed in the chimerical shadow projections of artist Jane Fox whose whimsical fairy tale like characters dance and flicker betwixt layers of film and live illuminations whilst the kaleidoscope of pre-recorded loops, live music and film washes over the audience.
Later in the downstairs café there will be an eclectic mix of records spun by Dj’s Funk & Elsie, Dan & Marc and Synthesize Me along with analogue psychedelic light show courtesy of Innerstrings. Yummy Indian street food provided by Jhal Muri Express, delicious local ales from micro brewery Langhams including their seasonal Flor Ale, Halfway to Heaven and LSD. We will also be serving a new cider from Middle Farm made with Champagne yeast and special summer cocktails with prosecco, elderflower and vodka to get us in the moog.
