STRANDED! FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE – OVER 18S ONLY. BYO.
18th January, 8pm
Neil Foster composes cinematic, expansive, colourful music inspired by dreams, landscapes, horizons and spaces of all kinds, bringing elements together through intuitive experimentation. He uses pianos, synths, vocals, percussion, and sound samples which include local bird calls, the ocean, radio static, mountain wind, voices and urban noise.
This one off show follows the recent release of Neil’s debut album ‘Hiraeth’ which is beginning to receive excellent reviews and extensive airplay. Expect ambient, cinematic sonorities, chilled out beats and soaring vocals, all woven around lyrical piano lines and galactic arpeggiators.
The music will be accompanied by evocative visuals created by artist and filmmaker Jonathan Brennan.
“Blissful ambient electronica… progressive and evolving. Foster delicately layers sound on sound, blending organic tones with subdued synth arpeggios. Strings and pianos interweave atop very crisp programmed drums.” Nialler9
“This album is a phenomenal piece of work. It rises, like sea swell, with sparking crests, cavernous troughs… nostalgia, waves of emotion, euphoria and darkness. Go and check it out” Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster
