Drift Chamber with Solarference
St Stephen’s Weekend
Enjoy two atmospheric concerts in the 1000-year-old St Stephen’s Church on Exeter’s High Street.
Drift Chamber is a collaboration between composer/arranger Joe Duddell and producer/sound designer Lex Shellard combining ambient classical and electronic soundscapes. ‘Pulse Nocturnes’ is their debut release following live appearances at Festival No.6 and for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction here at Exeter Phoenix.
Joe Duddell has written many concert works for major festivals and performers worldwide. Over the last 10 years he has become renowned for his collaborative projects with artists such as Elbow, Richard Hawley, Nero, Steve Mason and New Order amongst others to wide critical acclaim.
Composer and Sound Designer Lex Shellard produced an album for Deadly Avenger, which led to their first ‘Hunted’, which was licensed to the trailer of ‘Men In Black 3’. ‘Fractured’ was their first full album specifically for Trailer/TV. He has since produced not only his own solo Trailer music and Sound Design and working as a Producer and Mix Engineer for other artists and companies.
Singers and sound artists Nick Janaway and Sarah Owen perform a genre-defying mix of live sampling and traditional folk song, with voice at the heart of the music. From laptops running their self-designed, ‘home-made’ sound software, the duo explores and transforms a range of sounds from bike bells to cellotape, alongside live instruments. Every sonic detail of a Solarference performance is created live as Nick and Sarah improvise and respond together to weave layers of sound and song.
