Monday 4 December
DOORS – 7.30pm

Martyn Heyne’s 2016 debut mini-album, Shady & Light, highlights his unusual, distinctive approach to music. Working mainly with guitar, synthesisers and a drum machine – each enhanced by his trademark, vintage studio trickery – the composer has crafted six delicate pieces that are as moving as they are intricate. Whether it’s ‘Sparks’’ graceful melody, the lithe, rippling ‘Brandung’, or the gentle tremble of ‘Monoment’, their magical appeal lies not only in their detailed precision, but also in the rare serenity they afford their audience. He credits this plaintive, pastoral and evocative quality to a diverse range of influences, including Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Portishead, Boards of Canada and Krautrock.

Largely shunning both samples and digital instruments, Heyne’s new album, Electric Intervals, drops on 17th November and it’s a fascinating document. Listen to lead single, ‘Crash’ here!

Experience Martin Heyne’s wonderful collection of songs in one of Islington’s most intimate venues.

Support comes from Yorkshire based composer Thomas Ragsdale who melds cinematic electronica with immersive soundscapes and blissful techno workouts.
