THE McCARRICKS + Tansy Spinks
Friday 26th JanuaryDoors 7.30pm, UKP 7/5 members / concessions
Martin McCarrick - Cello/Piano
Kimberlee McCarrick - Violin
".......dark, evocative, compelling, hypnotic, unsettling, strange and
beautiful...." these are all words used to describe the unique audio visual
experience delivered by cellist Martin McCarrick and violinist Kimberlee
McCarrick. For this performance The McCarricks return to The Horse Hospital
to celebrate the work of Scottish film maker Norman McLaren (1914 - 87)
whose innovative animated film techniques often eliminated the camera
completely and instead saw the artist drawing, painting or scratching
directly onto the film. The McCarricks have composed new soundtracks for
McLarens work especially for this performance and will also be playing a
selection of music from their current show 'Music From The Third Floor'.
The McCarricks met in Lawrence, Kansas on a balmy summer evening in 1996.
Martin was touring with rock band Therapy? and Kimberlee was a violinist
with the Kansas Symphony Orchestra. For two years they lived between Martins
home in London and Kimberlee's Kansas City apartment until 1998 when they
left the heat and the tornadoes and settled in London. The have worked
together as composers, collaborators, string arrangers and live musicians
and will be touring the UK and Europe from March 2007.
