Trombonicle 33 / hootings

The Blowpipes had a great time in Newham, hooting to the multitudes a stunning range of tunes, including Crazy Rhythm, Aires Molinencs, Confucius, Peckham Roy and Oh Where has my Little Dog Gone? More must be done to mobilize this pocket orchestra over the next few months. The Blowpipes are available for garden parties, international conferences, cruises, arts festivals, rocket launches and so forth.

The long-lost duo ruM was revived for a joint performance with Mike Walter’s solo sax + synthesiser project,  Mouth, plus trombone poetry, all sounding out a Hoxton cellar at the excellent Hundred Years Gallery. We must do it again, there or on the top floor of The Shard, whichever is available first.

The most relaxing venture of the month was sharing a studio with Ivor Kallin for a broadcast of his Ambrosia Rasputin show on Resonance FM. The trombone was unleashed for a couple of minutes, and there was a brace of poems, but mostly Ivor was treated to a series of unexpected pieces of musical favourites from a stash of cassettes and CDs. The whole shebang is available online. We hope you enjoy it.
