Organ Of Corti
Format: COMPACT DISC
The new collaboration between Dave Formula and Christine Hanson explores the range of opportunities and possibilities within a variety of acoustic and electro-acoustic landscapes. Dave Formula: "We met in 2009 and quickly realized that we'd both had a recurring dream about a series of adventurous and diverse musical themes. We decided to record them all and wanted these sensory themes to enter your ears. Allow yourself to have a similar adventure as us -- but it can be your version of it and you can have it whenever you like -- and when you're awake! Please keep your clothes on throughout." Christine is a cello player with a rich and varied career on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2008, she wrote scores for the wildlife documentary series Beasties, which aired on BBC2 UK and Canadian national TV. She was also invited, as a composer, to participate in the IRCAM week, hosted by the BBC in Glasgow. Dave rejoined his Magazine colleagues for five sold-out shows in February 2009 to great critical acclaim. In summer 2009 Magazine played several European festivals and an acclaimed show at London's Royal Festival Hall. The band closed the year with TV appearances on Later With Jools Holland and BBC Electric Proms.
