Conrad Spectacle, October 2014

Ears still tender after a punishingly loud show, last week, at what is becoming my most frequented wee room. (in City Hall)

The first item was a piano and synth piece.

The second piece was a video of what looked like Perth City centre in the run up to Xmas, this involved pipe bands, sword swallowers and a couple of bemused swans pecking towards the camera lens. Heavily saturated video and very very loud. I think it was this item that did it for my ears!

Third was Phillip Glass’ Closing on the piano and it also sounded to me as if they were using a backing track?


The Long Piece being the entire second half (forty five minutes) did what it said on the tin


My drink awaits! A good wee night.
