Liverpool Philharmonic - Saturday 24th May 2008

news: Thursday 3rd April 2008

Tom Jenkinson, aka Warp Records' Squarepusher, will reveal a brand new project in Liverpool on Saturday 24th May as part of Liverpool's Music Week.

The new project sees Jenkinson joined by French multi-instrumentalist and mechanical genius Pierre Bastien, the two maestro soloists come together for what promises to be a spellbinding lesson in intricate bass grooves. Last time Jenkinson played Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall in 2004, it was a sell out show and now the archetypal recluse Squarepusher returns for a rare live performance.

For this solo show, he combines his instrumental prowess ona specially constructed 6 string electric bass with an equally remarkable skill in composition. Pierre Bastien is another very talented, unique soloist. With his homemade machines made from Meccano and recycled turntable motors, he, and his hybrid self-playing sound sculptures, play charming and hypnotic music. Recently he has collaborated with video artist Pierrick Sorin, fashion designer Issey Miyake, DJ Low, British singer and composer Robert Wyatt and the Trottola circus.

This revolutionary artiste whose fans includes the likes of Radiohead, Outkast and Sofia Coppala is not to be missed. Tickets are on sale now priced at £14.50. to buy tickets clicking here.
