THIS EVENT IS FREE!
We've been asked by Music in the City to host a concert at the amazing 14th Century Castle Vault.
This is going to be a VERY special show.
We have chosen special artists to perform who deal with resonance and sparsity. We are going to mic up the room, and not the instruments, so the sound will be very unique. Hopefully complimenting both Iannis Xenakis and Alvin Lucier, but in a accessible way.
Doyle and the Fourfathers
...Fans already include BBC 6 Music's Marc Riley, and Rouge Trade, who described the band as “channelling Scott Walker via Eno-era Bowie with a nod to Jarvis and Neil Hannon on the way. One of those “Catch them in a small venue while you can bands”.
Andrew Convey and Matt Reynolds
Two of Southampton's best alternative bands join up for what will be a very special set of stripped back material. We are not sure what they will be performing, but it is sure to be special.
Having just moved to Southampton from Oakland, California, this is her first show for the public in Southampton. Powerdove's songs perfect the art of restrained instrumentation, but still manage to be incredibly intense. Don't just take our word for it, see the myspace for music and praise.
Quamvis Sum Parva
The Castle Vault is the perfect place to experience this mixture of Stars of the Lid and Pauline Oliveros creating an end product Cabaret Voltaire would be proud of.
Last time we saw this performance, it was for Bang The Bore. Astounded by the industrial sound that was produced from the array of bowls, gongs, bows a loop pedal and a serious PA contribution, we had to get a performance here.
performing a set of guitar compositions, drawing influence from Godspeed You Black Emperor and American Primitivism.
Ignacio Agrimbau, Joe Kelly, and Hossein Hadisi
We will also be displaying some visual art to compliment the diverse line up that we have for you. Short films, and recorded experimental music will fill up the space throughout the day.

We warned you. We said we were going to do some more gigs.
So far, we have been very lucky. We've met some great people in Southampton that have helped us to organise some awesome shows.
The first coming up is at the Bargate Gallery on Sun 19th Sept, with Anja McCloskey’s (Haunted Stereo) EP launch. Support comes from Ottersgear (from Manchester) and local boys Freezing in Fressin.
This gig starts a series of events that we will be programming at the Bargate Gallery over the coming year. All of the shows will be stripped back, celebrating some great local acoustic artists, with special solo sets, and others artists from further afield, representing Brighton, Bournemouth, Winchester Portsmouth and London. Entry is £4 on the door, and starts at 8pm.
Our second is a free event on Saturday 9th October and is part of the Music in the City programme. Running from 12 until 20:00. We will be hosting a special show at the Castle Vault on Western Esplanade MAP. We have specially chosen artists to perform here that will compliment the atmosphere of the venue, creating resonance, echo, and reverberation.
