Perhaps Contraption seek experienced performing musicians to help turn their avant-rock collective into a radical marching band.
We want to make people dance messy with audacious punk-infused swing. We want to make people think deeply & laugh at the same time. We want to blend beautiful pop-hooks with sophisticated musical absurdities. We want to have lots of fun…
We primarily need a sousaphone or tuba player but are also on the look out for:
*an excellent lead wind player (French horn/ clarinet / Oboe for example)
* a mobile percussionist (this may include marimba or xylophone)
Any other instrument that can be played on the hoof will be considered. Multi instrumentalists are particularly welcome.
Applicants should be keen perform at indoor venues, street shows, and to prank around UK festivals next summer.
You should be keen to sing, learn some easy dance moves, and interact with audiences. Auditions will involve improvisation, and a contribution of ideas to new material (which is available for listening upon application.)
We will be holding informal auditions at the Premises Studios in East London (date TBC).
This project aims to create an adaptable, wonderful musical device that will be suitable for obtaining funding as well as making bookings across a wide range of areas.
Stage gigs, festival walkabout & busking are all on the agenda. All profits will be shared.
