descriptions, reviews, &c.
With contributions by Stevie Wishart, Phil Minton, Butch Morris and Rainer Linz. A composition made from an improvised badminton game where the rackets and the net have contact mics and accelorameters which access musical material.
Space is not the final frontier, nor is it cyberspace... it's the brain, or at least, our understanding of how it actually works. A simple analogy is presented, the Badminton court represents the brain, the two Badminton players play out the roles of the left and right hemispheres. The brain belongs to one time Australian musical genius and deviant, Percy Grainger; A man who created some of the most inspired and beautiful innovations in 20th century music while at the same time being capable of the most depressing racial bigotry. This piece is about the 'Jackal & Hyde' in his mind... and perhaps in all our minds!

Very strange... includes Grainger's love letters and letters to his mother.

Artist Biographies:

"Phil Minton comes from Torquay. He played trumpet and sang with the Mike Westbrook Band in the early 60s- Then in dance and rock bands in Europe for the later of part of the decade. He returned to England in 1971, rejoining Westbrook and was involved in many of his projects until the mid 1980's.

For most of the last forty years, Minton has been working as a improvising singer in lots of groups, orchestras, and situations, all over the place. Numerous composers have written music especially for his extended vocal techniques. He has a quartet with Veryan Weston, Roger Turner and John Butcher, and ongoing duos, trios and quartets with above and many other musicians.

Since the eighties, His Feral Choir, where he voice-conducts workshops and concerts for anyone who wants to sing, has performed in over twenty countries."
