Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia, Ely Methodist Church, Friday 10th September 2010, 7.30pm</p> <p>Celebrated local musician, Steve Bingham, is teaming up with wordsmith Jeremy Harmer on Friday 10th September for an evening dedicated to love. Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia and taking place at Ely Methodist Church, the event combines classical and electric violin, loops, guitar and voice, demonstrating the passion, tenderness and agony of deep feeling, as they are brought out by both music and the spoken word.</p> <p>Touchable Dreams explores the symbiosis between words and music and the ways in which they echo and complement each other. Sometimes words follow the music; at other times music follows the words; and sometimes the words and the music are intertwined in an almost physical interdependency.</p> <p>“This is an event unlike any you'll have experienced before,” says Roz Chalmers, who chairs Ely Sinfonia. “When I first heard Jeremy and Steve with their unique combination of modern and classical music and words, I was completely bowled over.” </p> <p>Jeremy Harmer says: “We try to show how music and words, the very bases of human emotion, can co-exist and enhance each other in expressing one of the greatest emotions of the human experience – love. We describe romantic love, transient love, ridiculous love, bitter love, lost love and sublime love.”</p> <p><a href="">read more</a></p> classical classical electronic jazz voice world music Mon, 06 Sep 2010 12:03:04 +0000 elysinfonia 3675 at Ely Methodist Church <p>Church providing the venue for many different types of event.</p> classical electronic jazz spoken word venue voice world music Mon, 06 Sep 2010 11:59:35 +0000 elysinfonia 3674 at Grrrl Party!

Effortlessly warping together electronic and dance genres with a soul of pure pop, the result is a bit like Yellow Magic Orchestra, Scritti Politti and Steely Dan being remixed by Mouse on Mars. Ben Jacobs forces more ideas into four epic minutes than most bands have in an entire album. <p> Recently seen at the Corn Exchange in support of Hot Chip, and making an overdue return to Bad Timing, expect an awesome solo show that showcases his talents as a vocalist and musician in a completely engaging and fun performance (which may or may not include that KLF cover). </p> <p> <b>Ben Butler and mouse pad</b><br /> Ben Butler makes bizarrely funky rhythmic 256-colour electro pop with the likes of 1970s studio megalomaniacs such as Vangelis, Alan Parsons, or even ELO stashed in its record collection. BB&amp;MP is the new project of Joe Howe (Gay Against You, Germlin) seen in Cambridge alongside the likes of DJ Scotch Egg, Kevin Blechdom and Ove Naxx. His newest alter-ego comes out of recent time in Berlin collaborating with Momus.
