Review: One Taste turning 7

 Sunday 11th December marked the day One Taste turned 7 years old and to mark that celebration they had a Birthday Do, which they did!
One Taste Choir.
The Bedford Globe Theatre was to be the scene for an evening of joyous Christmas/birthday fun flavoured entertainment. The First group to wow us for the evening was Eska and the One Taste Choir approximately about 46 of them which in it self was pretty impressive, especially watching them as they occupied every bit of usable space on the stage in such a precise and efficient manner. Then they began to sing, an absolutely awe inspiring sound engulfed the room rendering the entire audience gripped silently, not even a murmur amongst the crowd, and the vocal arrangement was just as precise as their physical arrangement on the stage. A fabulous way to kick the evening of with brilliantly Christmassy feel. 
Next we had Gideon a comedic acoustic singer/songwriter who can comfortably lay claim to being well versed within of the descriptive titles mentioned, an unassuming man at first glance, a humble confident man with an innate talent for seamlessly blending comedy, timing, song writing, storytelling definitely one worth checking out for all who have not had the pleasure to as yet.

Following Gideon was Stac a UK soul singer accompanied by two backing singers and a guitarist, as with most of the artist's on the bill it was a first time experience and we were totally impressed and not from a pessimistic perspective but more so from the standpoint that the level of creative talent that London is exuding is truly exciting. Stac's performance was truly splendid her delicate but soulful voice and her song writing is really something to look out for.

Daniel Marcus Clarke
 Next to the stage we had Daniel Marcus Clarke a pioneer in what has been dubbed the "Ear Film" which is in its essence exactly what it says it is. This was a one man performance including a Tenor Horn and an arpeggione (a cross between a cello and a guitar) and a soundboard. He began with a few notes from the horn, a shuffle of the feet and the few notes played became a looped audio bed for the beginning of his recital, a gripping poetic tale a well constructed piece accompanied by intermittent instrumental sounds from his arpeggione along with rhyme. Definitely a new live experience in this type of environment, one I have totally taken to.
The Noisettes
After such a captivating performance something truly special would have to follow and it did!, as The Noisettes took to the stage for what was to be a smashing performance. They delighted us with known and loved tracks such as "Wild Young Hearts" and "Never Forget You" to name a couple, along with new material which also bore the Noisettes calibre, as they performed splendidly together Shingai's vocal performance was great. The collective aura of the band completely hooked the audience, so much so that after leaving the stage at the end of their performance the screams and shouts for an encore even included what could be considered a desperate and distant "more", which seemed to do the trick as we were then graced with more music performed impeccably.

The Noisettes
On to the final act that I have the pleasure of experiencing tonight although not the last act of the night a poet Inua Ellams a very sharp and astute writer with a good understanding of stanza, structure and delivery. Along with heartfelt conveyance and what could be considered as alternative subject matter not forgetting his fabulous ability to paint such vivid picture and emotions using words and tone. Overall a brilliantly ponderous and engaging recital.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening, great audience, lovely venue, top class entertainment and last but not least good Guinness. Having experienced this event we are so thoroughly excited to see what this new year will bring for the fabulous acts which performed on the night and OneTaste, exciting time's ahead!

Review: Thurston Moore-Performing Psychic Hearts

Thurston Moore@ Electric Ballroom
Saturday 2nd Dec. Saw an evening at the Electric Ballroom Camden hosting company such as the Head of Wantastiquet, Tall Firs And Thurston Moore performing Psychic Hearts his classic 1995 solo album.

Head of Wantastiquet

The evening started off as usual, when Thurston Moore Or Sonic Youth are concerned, decent que’s and anticipating devotee’s tend to be the norm. The first artist to the Stage was Paul Labrecque of Sunburned Hand Of the Man performing solo as Head of Wantastiquet, his sound was instrumentally very emotional, a score with eastern influences dare I say even mildly religious in its feel which shaped it into a very reflective experience, the heavy rhythmic drone of the guitar interweaved with intricate notes and melodic chant, came together form an altogether enchanting and reflective almost meditative audio experience.

Dave, Tall Firs

The next act to grace the stage was Tall Firs a much more classic acoustic rock band made up of Dave and Aaron both on guitar, although briefly accompanied by John Moloney on the drums, as it was my first time seeing Tall Firs perform I was filled with anticipation and curiosity and as to be expected they put on fully enjoyable performance, their material was original and well written. Their performance and music really connected with the audience through subject matter and emotion their genuine demeanour really compounded this to the point whereby it felt at times it was a much more intimate gig than it actually was. 
Aaron, Tall Firs

On to the Main Thurston Moore performing Psychic Hearts although the album was released prior to my Indy appreciation years, the music was quintessentially Thurston, Sonic-esque in its ingredients full of energy, guitars rifts but add to that a violin, and a harp coupled with Thurston’s wordplay and you have a really good album. We so thoroughly enjoyed the performance, the material and the atmosphere and judging by the reactions of the audience we were not alone in our sentiment, definitely an experiencing and an album that we at creative happen will be revisiting and adding to our collection. Overall a night that warrant's two thumbs up! Smiles all round.

Oxjam Takeover Camberwell 2011: Review

1.Ruby Tuesdees. 2. Soneni & The Soul. 3. Michael Armstrong. 4. Antarma . 5. Baroness Tamara Von Stein Zu Leitershofen. 6. Glyphs. 7. Joe Inman Project. 8. The Hazeltones. 9. After The Ice.

Oxjam Takeover Camberwell saw a fabulous array of acts and musicians spread across 7 venues in late October 2011:
Atarma, The Hazeltones

Venue:The Phoenix

We start with The Phoenix Denmark Hill, a cosy venue attached to the side of Denmark Hill train station, a bar/restaurant. The first act to be heard by us at this venue was Antarma a solo artist performing a mixture of acoustic songs and Djembe drums and melodic chant. Antarma's performance was extremely uplfting with positive, healing lyrical content which was well suited to the family orientated venue. The Next act to follow Atarma at this venue was The Hazeltones a  wholesome and smooth 3 piece band which comprises of siblings two sister’s and a brother playing the Bass, Drum’s and the Piano, not quite the Jackson 5 in number but in talent and dedication these siblings are are band to watch! The Hazeltones performed mix of genres on the night, their statement performance was the cover of the popular chart single Louder by DJ Fresh. This performance clearly rocked the venue, not only did the lead own the stage but she got the attention of the audience this performance. Best described here by us at Creative Happen as breathtaking.

Soneni & The Soul.
Venue: The Crocked Well
The next act we had opportunity to experience was Soneni & The Soul a fabulous four piece band at The Crooked Well, a lovely welcoming venue. A truly apt venue for the luscious, soulful, soothing sounds of Soneni & The Soul, accompanied by a courteous audience these factors created a lovely environment. The band were brilliant, their live perform far excelled what I was expecting, although I knew they would give a good performance. I loved them in this live context soneni's smooth vocals cominbed well with live band, I must say a little far removed from what is available of the band on You Tube. If it wasn’t for the night's agenda and a list of duties I would have happily found myself sitting, sipping and smiling while soaking up some of the delicious audible nectar produced by this four piece. Alas! the arms on the proverbial clock hath shifted, and the next stop!

Venue: The Tiger

The Tiger a much more eclectic an energetic environment set in a rather sizable gastro-pub of sorts’. We enter to find Michael Armstong -Take Over Manager on stage introducing The Glyphs a band which caught our attention on the approach to the event as a  band to watch, on the strength of their sound an interesting two piece act consisting of lead singer Mark Walsh and producer Matt Wilkie tipped as a band to watch by The Blue Walrus Blog, they are categorised as Folktronica/Dubstep. An original sound that sounds well established within its own style, energetic and fresh, for those that like dance music this is a certified yes!
Mark Walsh of Glyphs, Baroness Tamara Von Stein Zu Leitershofen.
Venue: Joiner's Arms
After the Glyphs performance we made our way to the Joiner's Arms to take in some of the Joe Inman project, a relatively young four piece band with somewhat of an arctic monkey's esque sound, a little less accomplished within their sound as the previous band, which is a good thing if you ask me as these guys are young enough to have time to evolve their sound to the point they may become serious contenders of the future, delivering quite solid lyrics with a guitar driven score a good way to spend an evening with a few friends and the poison of your choice.

Sam of Ruby Tuesdees, Joe Inman Project.
Venue: Crocked Wells

On to the next stop, The Phoenix to see Ruby Tuesdees but on our way a quick detour was in order as we  had an opportunity to meet Baroness Tamara Von Stein Zu Leitershofen who happened to onstage as we passed, so on entering the Crooked Well we are met by a vibrant colour co-ordinated lady effortlessly expelling operatic notes but on closer analysis to my surprise the subject matter was of a comedic nature totally throwing me off kilter in a good way, instantly invoking a smile on my face which led to an undeniable chuckle, Baroness Tamara then proceeded to gently coerce a member of the audience to join her on stage for what was to be a fabulously funny operatic skecth culminating in two members of the audience on stage perfoming their parts as an unassuming audience member would, a truly comical experience for everyone.

Venue: The Phoenix

When we actually arrive at The Phoenix to our dismay we found that the schedule for the phoenix seemed to have fallen out of sync with the literature so we had reached to find much to our disappointment Sam and Chris of Ruby Tuesdees walking around the venue enjoying the rest of their evening having already performed what I can only assume was a good set. Consoling our disappointment by having a little drink and a few words with the guys before heading off.

After The Ice.
Venue: The Joiners Arms
The next act that we saw was Paul Lisak and After the Ice at the Joiners Arms an act that we were looking forward to seeing, Paul and his band begin to play rifts and guitar melodies.Their melodic rifts echoes that of American Band Sonic Youth, who we have been documenting for the last few years, not so much the vocals but still a very good sound and the decent subject matter and measured delivery really combined to produce a good performance, the crowd could have been a shade more courteous and maybe held some of their full blown conversations till maybe after the performance, but in all a fully enjoyable performance.

Abigail Hardiman.

Then to pop down the street to see Abigail Hardiman an acoustic singer songwriter, at a tender age of 18 I found that Abigail had a very experience air about her, then she began to sing to my absolute delight she posses a lovely voice and very powerful lyrics which almost suggest that Abigail has been hear before touching on subject and scenarios that are right at home among the mid Thirty lot although the music will communicate effectively to music lovers of all ages, I have a strong desire to hopefully hear Abigail’s music streaming across the airways a definite contender of the near future her music could really cause a stir if released in to the charts. Which brings me to my final note on Oxjam Takeover Camberwell 2011, Hats to Michael Armstrong, Tracy Alvares and the Rest of the Camberwell team for putting together such a vast amount of good talent, organising the venues along with promotion and publicity a totally fabulous event something definitely worth planning in for next year.

Michael Armstrong.

AACDD Exhibition Review.

"Cry Of A Caged Bird"
 Artist Rohan Clarke UK.
Bronze Award (drawing)
"Art by offenders"
National Exhibition Royal Festival Hall 2010.
We are now one month on from the end of AACDD's (African & African Caribbean Design Diaspora) exhibition Choice's @ The OXO Tower Bargehouse on London's South Bank. An absolutely marvellous show a London first, whereby for the first time under one roof such a large group of artist's from across the African Diaspora have contributed to such a vast show, over 4 floor’s of art and design with artists' displaying work ranging from fashion and textiles through to product design, photography and fine art. This exhibition was truly an event to behold not just for the fact that I (Michael Mapp) happened to be a featured artist, it was for the fact that the work on display was a refreshing mix of contemporary and traditional pieces from stunningly engaging work in pencil: to the swooning lines of a collection of stone sculptures by Gary March and innovative design ideas. A very well recieved event at around 5000+ atendee's with an overwhelmingly appreciative tone among the guest's, the exhibition was so rich in diversity and talent as word may not best convey the events aesthetic's please see the images below.

The Ground Floor was home to the live African Music, Gary March, Alexarnder Mulligan, Agenda and more...

Akeisha Walters
Age 21
How did find this exhibition?
I found it and all round different experience as it was my first exhibition, before I did fashion so it’s a new experience its a new crowd of people, new vibe and environment. This was my first step into the art world and it has opened me up to a wider audience, a more international audience, so I was able to get different perspectives on what people thought about my work and where I could go with it.
How has this exhibition helped you?
In a different way as it was a non profitable event I found my self having to sell myself and my work speaking to people about myself and my work. Going forward it can be placed on my C.V which would look good it has also given me a lot more self esteem in terms of aspiration and approaching other events.
How do you feel now the exhibition is over?
I felt sad as I didn’t want it to end if I’m honest as I do have an emotional connection to my work which I have been told I shouldn’t have because if someone buys it then I have to let go. I felt very proud of myself for producing a very good collection, previously the only feedback that I had received was from my mum so receiving such good feedback from other audience’s really has helped my confidence.
Has anything come of this exhibition for you?
Nothing financial but if it wasn’t for the exhibition the work would still be on my PC, so it allowed me to go through the process of printing matting framing and hanging in such a fab building, so yeah!
Now that the exhibition is over. What are you doing now one month on?
I’m still doing exhibitions my next exhibition that I’m doing is called Conversation With My Conscious which is being put on by Abbey Wright a textile designer which is going to be a really good collection, you should look out for that and mosaic is another event which I coming up soon at the Africa Centre.
