LEO CHARBURN 'THE TEXT MESSAGE'
Leo Chadburn presents "The Text Message"
Saturday 7th March, 8-10pm (doors 7.30pm)
BOOK A TICKET - email email@example.com
Composer and vocalist Leo Chadburn (AKA Simon Bookish) presents an evening of music with surprising and unusual words, ranging from floating dreamscapes, lists of moths, haunting descriptions of imaginary places and mangled poetry.
Featuring song, spoken word and lo-fi electronics, and including rarely heard experimental music by composers including John Cage, Jennifer Walshe alongside Chadburn’s own left-field pop aesthetic, the evening aims to invoke a kind of surreal "film for the ears."
Leo Chadburn is a vocalist and composer of experimental music, pop music and music for the gallery.
