Paul Smith (Maximo Park) & Peter Brewis (Field Music) have just announced three performances of their collaborative composition ‘Frozen By Sight’ (album due on 17th November).
Based around text from Paul Smith’s travel writing, and Peter Brewis’ chamber-band arrangements, ‘Frozen By Sight’ evolved from a commission for the performance of a new musical work at the Festival Of The North East, at Sage Gateshead, in late 2013. These December shows will be the first performances since that inaugural show.
The live band includes David Brewis (drums and vocals), John Pope (acoustic bass), Andrew Lowther (tuned percussion) and will feature a string quartet of Ed Cross (Violin), Josephine Montgomery (violin), Chrissie Slater (viola) and Ele Leckie (cello).
The dates are as follows:
18 December – Band on the Wall, Manchester –
19 December – St Giles-in-the-Fields, London
20 December – Sage, Gateshead (as part of Sage Gateshead’s 10th Birthday)
