Islington Assembly Hall June 1st 2013
This is what makes us:

The Beginning - Atoms ‚ Stars - Galaxies - Asteroids
Earth - Water - Ice - Man - Machines - Now - What next?

Rock pop explorers Ultrasound bring their cinematic punk-Floyd approach to curating an evening of cosmic music. The music of artist and coder, Simon Katan, will evoke the formation of galaxies. His audio-visual compositions create musical odysseys through exploring animated worlds which incorporate abstract humour, absurdity and wonder. Adrift in a sea of sound and possibility, the acutely haunting and occasionally brutal Dead Rat Orchestra will steer their ship through the primordial soup, shouting, singing, glistening, and plucking textures and melodies to craft their idiosyncratic vision of what music and performance can be.

Finally, in a cacophony of light trails and dark matter, hosts Ultrasound will deliver us to a present with songs spanning light years, mountainous peaks, cavernous troughs and pop-battered pockmarks. Ideas will flow and spark as fusion takes hold ‚ its all very Heath Robinson. Now fully reassembled and with second album ?ìPlay For Today¬ù (Fierce Panda) firmly under their belts, Ultrasound are ready to take you into the future. It has always been about celebrating the new.

?ìsuffused with passion, intelligence and a kind of heroic, life-affirming despair¬¶Play for Today is a beautiful beast¬ù - BBC

?ìthe sound of a band on top form¬ù - God is in the TV

?ìHigh-drama, high-octane, occasionally high-on-life pop music¬ù - Rocksucker

?ìA Triumph¬ù - Q magazine

?ìSimmering grandeur¬ù Mojo

This is not a gig, its a voyage through time - Departure at 7.45pm
