I had to get confirmation of this before I blogged it...
Joint ICA Moot & STMW Event - Happy HardcoreYes... you read that right... Moot (alt-worship community in London) will be hosting a joint project (performance art?) with the Institute of Contemporary Art... which will see 'Happy Hardcore' (Rave) tunes being played LIVE on a CHURCH ORGAN! IMHO this is 'Brilliant-Lunacy' and is either inspired or insane! Either way it has got to be worth experiencing!
Thurs 4th May – Sacred Selections “ Happy Hardcore”, Institute of Contemporary Art at St Matthews Church & Moot experimental music performance, 7pm, Free admission
This unusual and collaborative experimental event will be compared Clare Catford to represent Moot. With its mix of celebratory, uplifting tunes based around hectic breakbeats and rapid pace, Happy Hardcore creates an infectious energy that harks back to the golden era of UK rave. This eclectic choice of anthemic tracks, selected by one of Hardcore’s most renowned dj producers, spans almost a decade – from the memorable riffs of Midnight Express by Hopscotch, to the trance influences of Sy and Demo’s Stay with me.
Music selected by DJ Sy (Quosh Records) Transcribed for the organ by John Riley (St Pauls & St George’s Episcopal Church, Edinburgh), Performed by Paul Ayres(St Georges Church, Hanover Square).
