Aldeburgh Music, Snape Maltings, 29 October 2011
Faster Than Sound connects the legacy of Dubstep with some of the earliest experiments in electronic music and projection. Roly Porter (former Vex’d) presents Fall Back, specially commissioned by Aldeburgh Music. Porter fuses his background in British sound system music with experimental composition incorporating the unique, strikingly similar aesthetics of the Ondes Martenot and the Dobro; both patented in 1928 and played by Cynthia Millar. The music is partnered by Rod Maclachlan’s epic, archaic projections that evoke the sublime and phantasmagorical.
