John Matthias - Album Launch - Bush Hall
Stories From The Watercooler" is a suite of twelve short stories rendered in song form. Their basic template is classic folk-rock - great song-writing, acoustic and electric guitar, strings. This is clever, emotional, unfashionable music-making - it's not about John Matthias, it's not about the trials and tribulations of celebrity or non-celebrity. It's about the everyday and the unusual, about how people relate or fail to relate. A kind of folk music for a new millenium, it's about life and the world. To celebrate the release of the new album John Matthias will be joined by Cortical Songs and Patrick Bell at The Bush Hall for this enchanting gig. Cortical Songs is a work in four movements for string ensemble and solo violin written by John Matthias and Nick Ryan in which the orchestra is partially controlled by a tiny computer brain. 8th October at The Bush Hall, West London 7.30pm £10 in advance from here John Matthias - Album Launch Cortical Songs Patrick Bell.
