Icarus – “Uke ‘Em”, Antipodean Tour and Live Album

An epic occurrence: Icarus are playing some shows in Australia and to celebrate, Martin Hampton has edited some of the superb film he made for the live set to a new track called "Uke ‘Em" which you can see above.

On March 25th, we’ll also be releasing a live album entitled "All Is For The Best In The Best Of All Possible Worlds", recorded during the Sylt Remixes shows last summer to co-incide with the tour. The album features almost entirely new material ("Uke ‘Em" is one of the tracks featured), worked up over the course of the tour and will be available as a limited edition numbered CD and mp3 download. Watch this space …

Traum @ PACMF

Isambard Khroustaliov will be re-interpreting his soundtrack to Martin Hampton‘s epic film ‘Traum’ live, on Saturday 27th February as part of the Interface III event at the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival in Plymouth.

The film, which depicts the demise of the landscape surrounding the Lea Valley shortly before its compulsory acquisition for the London Olympics, is a chilling portrait of how easily despondency and despair can set in when communities are faced with such large scale turmoil and uncertainly.
