(This is the first of the performances of Idiosyncrophilia — the second, below, is at 7pm)
Welcome to the quirky, curious world of Neil Feather's invented instruments. Surrounded by a mesmerising soundscape composed by Rosie Langabeer, the instruments — with names such as 'The Wiggler', 'Nondo' and 'Magnapooters' — whizz, whirr and crunch under the spotlight. A triumph of handmade analogue technology, these deliciously idiosyncratic instruments are made from materials such as cigar boxes, hacked-up guitars and vibrators. Come experience Idiosyncrophilia — a 45-minute semi-improvised soundscape. Immerse yourself in sonic invention!
Neil Feather, Erika Grant & Dan Beban (invented instrument performers)
