The performance by Pure Phase Ensemble – the collective of 15 musicians playing songs composed during the workshop will be a high point of the festival.
We invite all SpaceFest! friends to Pure Phase Ensemble playback party. We will present the whole concert (audio + video) on 18th May at Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art in Gdansk.
Pure Phase Ensemble was an international music collective created specially for the SpaceFest! 2011. 13 musicians from Poland and the UK took part in a workshop run by Raymond Dickaty (ex-Spiritualized). Together they composed the music which was later performed at the festival. Among the musicians invited to participate in the workshop were: Jaime Harding (Marion), Piotr Pawlak (Kury, Łoskot), Antoni Budziński (Klimt), Joanna Kuźma (Asia i Koty, Folder), Karol Schwarz (KSAS, Prawatt).
Pure Phase Ensemble music provides you with guitars from hell, angels’ voices, shivers down your spine, tears, psychedelic flow, space energy, tanks, darkest sun and demons. Ray Dickaty put it in a nutshell: „spacerock psychedelic monster”. Are you strong
enough to take it???
