Rafael Toral & Bezbog live at Milton Keynes Gallery
Saturday, August 24th
MK Gallery has teamed up with The Portuguese Conspiracy to host a season of live music to complement their current acclaimed exhibition Paula Rego: Obedience and Defiance.
Rafael Toral & Bezbog
As a composer and performer, Rafael Toral’s fascination with the potential for sound and the function of music has led to him crossing the boundaries between rock, ambient, contemporary, electronic and free jazz. For this exclusive gig in Milton Keynes Toral’ will revisit his recently reissued seminal ambient LP ‘Wave Field’. Originally recorded in 1994 it remains as innovative a quarter of a century later.
Lovers of favela rhythms are in for a treat with Bezbog (Favela Discos) live set which fuses with amplified and electronically transformed saxophone, trumpet and percussion into a rhythmic flux of sound and music.
Price: £8 (adv) £10 (on the doors)
