Zen Bicycle Band at the Brewery Tap Gallery Folkestone
- The Brewery Tap 53 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent. CT20 1JR.
A rare opportunity to witness the magical Zen Bicycle Band creating a unique sound score live with an audience to a film by artist Annie Catford.
After an interval ZBB will create a second score, this time being familiar with the film.
A Q&A session will take place following the performances to decide which was the most appropriate rendition. We look forward to your participation.
The Zen Bicycle Band, formed in 2008, has been on a musical Road Trip. It is always a deep listening, and an intense learning process for us. We play spontaneous music. There are no pre-conceived ideas, or set formulas, we rely on trust and the creativity between us.
What is The Zen Bicycle Band music? It’s a freeform flowing stream of connectivity between three individual players created entirely in the moment, similar to the Japanese art of calligraphy ‘Shodo’ – ‘ Direct Deed’ where after meditation and with one stroke of the brush ideograms are formed. For us, the Zen Bicycle Band, the ego nature is stilled, a connection with the audience is made, and we tap into our imagination and inspiration. Every performance is unique. We hope you’ll enjoy the experience.
Zen Bicycle Band CD review in the June-July 2016 issue of NEXUS: “This is truly enjoyable, flowing jazz”.
