Band on the Wall have two very exciting concerts coming up this month. Firstly, Barcelona-based Mexican MURCOF performs a collaborative set with classical pianist Francesco Tristano. I once drove Murcof to Liverpool airport, we talked about Swine Flu and David Lynch, both interesting topics for a 45 minute journey I’m sure you will agree? He is a lovely guy and his album COSMOS is amazing so go see him if you have the opportunity. The second show is ‘MUSIC OF THE MINDS FT. FINN PETERS’ which involves the digital interpretation of brain impulses by a top class band including contemporary jazz composer Finn Peters. Pretty exciting stuff all round, here is some more information;
Murcof (The Leaf Label) & Francesco Tristano – Monday 15th Nov | £12.50
Band on the Wall are proud to present a totally original collaborative performance between the shining star of ambient electronica Murcof (The Leaf Label) and internationally-acclaimed classical pianist Francesco Tristano. Murcof was one of the most talked about musicians at last year’s FutureEverything Festival, and this concert brings together his talent for crafting contemporary electronic soundscapes with Tristano’s classically trained piano performance.

Music of the Mind feat. Finn Peters – Friday 26th Nov | £12
Also gracing the stage this season is Music of the Mind feat. Finn Peters – a unique interactive work where the artist literally ‘thinks’ the music, made possible through cutting edge cognitive technology and the digital interpretation of brain impulses, in collaboration with a live band featuring flutist, saxophone player and contemporary jazz composer Finn Peters.
