This latest project by the DSQ follows in the imaginary footsteps of David Bowie and his Berlin Years.
The music here explores and re-visits the period when Bowie experimented with the ambient world of Brian Eno, free improvisation, and the minimalist works of the classical composer, Philip Glass.
This album guides the listener on an inspirational sonic journey, mixing music and soundscapes from Bowie, Berlin & Beyond.
Project Flicks presents a quartet of short films accompanied by music performed live by DSQ. The International films chosen cover a wide period of classic cinema, from the early black & white movies, newsreel footage from the 'Prelinger Archives', an Oscar winning Parisian classic, and a brand new commission from Australia, based on the relationship of 'Brian & Banksy' (a budgie and a dog!).
Through the 'prism' of live film, the DSQ has commissioned four new scores which will engage, enthral and delight, opening up a freshness of discovery for inquisitive minds from 8 years old to 108.
Crimson draws its inspiration from the work of the UK progressive rock band King Crimson. It follows on from the Delta Saxophone Quartet's Internationally acclaimed CD, Dedicated to you but you weren't listening that reinterpreted the music of the Soft Machine.
Music of Soft Machine revamped and revisited through imaginative arrangements and the inspirational playing of the Delta Saxophone Quartet. "May be the most revelational... and revolutionary look at a legendary British group. (Soft Machine)" John Kelman, All About Jazz
