Toby Marks (Banco de Gaia) and Andrew Heath
Kingskerswell Parish Church, Newton Abbot.
A Very Special night of Ambient Electronica with Toby Marks (Banco de Gaia) and Andrew Heath
Banco de Gaia’s Toby Marks will be exploring the gentler end of his catalogue, presenting ambient works old and new accompanied by live improvisation and manipulation. Ranging from cinematic grandeur through tender minimalism to otherworldly fantasies, this performance will take you to places of beauty rarely visited.
In performance, Andrew Heath re-interprets his studio work weaving multiple layers of textural field recordings balanced with etherial whispers of electronic sound and half-glimpsed piano melodies. Recent performances have seen him add acoustic instruments to his palette often bowed or e-bowed, but certainly not played conventionally. This is immersive, ambient music. It drifts. It constantly shifts as it charts new topographies, creating and following maps that are full of change.
Visuals will be provided by video artist Patrick Dunn (Banco de Gaia, Tangerine Dream, Afro Celt Sound System) who blends realworld imagery and computer generated graphics to create a mesmerising, immersive world.
