 SU
STAINING ENSEMBLEperform
…and the Shuffle of Things
live in London, Oxford and Birmingham
 
“Bewitching, beautifully crafted and highly addictive” - THE WIRE“Gloriously abundant in cascading cycles of notes and noises” - THE GUARDIAN
Composer/producer Andrew Poppy launches his new
Su
staining Ensemble with rare livedates in London, Oxford and Birmingham, performing music from the acclaimed album,
‘…and the Shuffle of Things'.
Poppy is an eclectic post modern artist whose music has been compared to CabaretVoltaire and
Philip Glass
,
Kraftwerk 
and
John Cage
,
Underworld
and
John Adams
. Movingbetween the studio and the concert hall, he treads a path between downtempoelectronica and the minimalist classical works for orchestra that shot him to notoriety morethan 20 year ago.The start of a new, ongoing live project, the
Staining The Silence
tour draws together various aspects of Poppy's previous live outings – from the
BBC Concert Orchestra
'sperformance of his work (alongside
Gavin
 
Bryars
,
Michael
 
Nyman
and
John
 
Tavener
) atthe Royal Festival Hall – to last year's solo mixture of spoken word, electronics, video andpiano minimalism at the
Chelsea Theatre
, described by James Tilston as:
“A remarkable collaboration between musical composition and visual impulses thatneeds to be experienced by as broad an audience as possible.”
The
Su
staining Ensemble features Kate Halsall (keyboards and piano), Andrew Poppy(piano, keyboards, bass guitar, voice), Jez Wiles (vibraphone and percussion), GenevieveWilkins (marimba and cajon) and Julia Bardsley (video).
