Willow’s Song with theremin

June 29, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A live performance of Spacedog’s latest set at the Blank Gallery, Brighton, June 2008. As seen at the Sanctuary, Brighton Festival Fringe, 2008. This number samples the Hammer classic The Devil Rides Out (1968), mixing it with Willow’s Song from that other British occult classic The Wicker Man (Paul Giovanni, 1973). Mind control courtesy the hypnotic voice of the great Charles Gray. The very first sample is from a 1950s Parakeet training record.

The lineup: Jenny Angliss, Sarah Angliss, Mike Blow, Ben Kypreos and Colin Uttley.

For anyone interested in the technical details: The Hammer samples you are hearing are being scrubbed (i.e. speed controlled) live using the theremin. Sarah (the thereminist) has devised a Max/MSP patch that enables her to do so – this also scrubs the video live. Mike (in the green tee-shirt) is cueing in the samples as the song progresses. As the lighting in the gallery wasn’t suitable for projection, we’ve added our usual visuals onto this film, during the edit.
