sex olympics

cube orchestra - sex olympicson 16th october 2014, steve, an impro singer with a synth, ghoufran, pianist, and myself on drums and melodica with my trusty echo pad ipad app, took to the cube stage as a kind of warm-up house band for a film event about ‘the year of the sex olympics’. it was all very last-minute, but i got there early so i could set up the drum kit left-handed by the side of the big screen where the piano lives. a polite and subdued gathering sat and chatted quietly throughout our set, reacting each time steve delivered a killer line. once he got going, the sci-fi futurist theme took flight to the very anti-climax

performers:

Steve Lake: Vocals, Synth
Ghoufran Warlow: Piano, Cubichord
Keef Chemistry: Melodica, Percussion, Vocals

i recorded our entire performance, from the second i pressed record to the second i pressed stop, and it’s a little gem of improvisation. a dystopian operetta.
