Composer Dave Bessell let us know about an upcoming concert that will be of interest to a lot of electronic music fans – a live performance by ‘synth supergroup’ Node.
Performed on an extremely rare collection of vintage analogue synthesizers, some of which are shown above, Node’s music ranges from dense textural atmospheres to minimal evolving rhythms. It’s been described as like ‘the soundtrack to some long forgotten sci fi film’.
Node will be performing at Feb 27, 2015 at 8:30 pm, at the Royal College of Music in London.
Node features four music industry veterans that have taken time out from their ‘day jobs’ to indulge their passion for everything analog:
- producer and sonic legend Flood;
- producer and composer Ed Buller;
- composer & professor of music Dave Bessell; and
- Hollywood composer Mel Wesson, who has most recently provided soundscapes for Hans Zimmer’s run of blockbuster films.
Ticket for the Node concert are £30. See the RCM site for details.
