Enlightened adventurers of note and tone LUME have recently announced the launch of their very own creative lab, a forum enabling participating artists to provide a unique insight into their creative capers through entries on a bespoke blog.
The series, which begin on 8 February with a performance from riotous riff-rousers Word Of Moth (featuring LUME founders Dee Byrne and Cath Roberts), affords a forum for musicians to develop new work and hone their improvisational chops while offering audiences a portal through which to consider sonic systems and wisdoms. So, don your safety specs, pick up your test tubes and pop down to London's IKLECTIK for some serious scientific sermonising from the following leading authorities: saxophonist Julie Kjær (16 March), audio reconstructualist/Shatner's Bassoon operative Craig Scott (19 April) and guitarist/composer Anton Hunter (24 May).
