This month Grassy Noel & APE meet master musician, artist and inventor of instruments Giles Leaman for a night of chaos and imagination, in a celebration of the work of Edgar Allen Poe and Jan Svankmajer.
Giles Leaman has performed and recorded in countless projects including The Drones, The Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Echo City, Rip Rig & Panic and with legendary poet Brion Gysin. His interest in found objects and the challenge set by using them, informs the process in which he works, ”It is as if the material creates a spark to a hitherto unexpected wave of energy, which then in turn consumes everything”. This spark or connection can sometimes be between two materials or a technique and a material or an idea looking for a framework in order to exsist.
