MARGINAL CONSORT (London St John's-at-Hackney Church, 02/06/16)

Marginal Consort are a four-man Japanese art collective who traditionally perform one show a year, wherein they each free-improvise their own, well "music" would be too strong a word, using a variety of home made instruments, in complete isolation to the efforts of the others. Audiences are encouraged to wander about the space, as where you stand does materially effects how you perceive the soundscape, and as utterly pretentious as the whole thing is, there's a creativity and sense of fun that made this a fascinating, and occasionally sublime experience.
