Second in our series of experimental music nights sees the staging of the "Sonic Fruit and Veg Machine" and Live looping bass virtuoso, Liam Lee-Hines.
"Sonic Fruit & Veg Machine" is a piece devised by Lyndon Owen to encourage audiences to partake in new music after the Welsh “Fire-Break” finished (31/10/20) during the covid pandemic. Its a project which conformed to all the social distancing regulations whilst still managing to engage as many people as possible regardless of their musical skill or aptitude.
It is based on the fruit and vegetable intake for a typical day, and at what time, of four households who happen to be vegans. It embraces the non-elitist socialist approach towards composition shown by Cornelius Cardew and his contemporaries. There's a blog at
