EAST INDIA CLUB PRESENTS QUEST

 

Wed 8 October 7.30pm
Free / Main Space / Standing

East India Club, curated by award winning musician and Sarod player, Soumik Datta, brings together eclectic musicians to create nights of hybrid, genre-breaking collaborations. Mixing tribal, classical, punk, electronica, dnb, soul and retro rock, these nights go from meditative to wild. Soak yourself in deep and ancient Ragas. Then, let your hair loose on the dance floor to organic, trip-hop beats!

Bringing a unique take to the classical piano trio, Quest Ensemblecollaboratively create original work with a distinctive sound that seamlessly blends improvisation with devised composition. With intriguing traces of Vaughn Williams, Steve Reich, and Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Quest paint a unique and evocative musical landscape filled with lyrical melodic lines, rich harmonies, and interwoven rhythmic counterpoint. The ensemble features Filipe Sousa (piano/keys), Tara Franks (cello), and Preetha Narayanan (violin). In addition to performing, their work encompasses creative education projects, site-specific installations and sound commissions for dance and visual arts.

Quest Ensemble's debut album 'Footfall' is rooted in a sense of place that inspires the sound and imagination of their stories. In this show, Quest Ensemble presents ‘Footfall’ and more recent pieces in collaboration with visuals artist Somang Lee. With her poignant responses through live ink manipulation projected on lightbox, their unique sound world, and an intimate set-up of the space, be prepared for a magical and immersive performance experience!
