With their particular interest in distinctive sounds and instruments, Sound of Yell have been drawn to the sonic possibilities of Hospitalfield’s antique harpsichord and harp, situated in the Drawing Room. They performed a specially commissioned piece incorporating these instruments alongside tapes, electronics, bass flute and steel string guitar.
Sound of Yell will also played a separate set of compositions, from their previous releases on Glasgow’s Chemikal Underground and Berlin’s Infinite Greyscale and preview work in progress for their next LP, providing a context for their site specific performance.
Sound of Yell are a Glasgow based, all acoustic collective led by Stevie Jones. Mostly instrumental and often strikingly off kilter, Jones’ dextrously melodic finger style guitar is accompanied by cinematic arrangements using intriguing instrumentation and techniques. In this instance, SoY will perform as a trio featuring painter Vikki Morton (previously of Muscles of Joy and Suckle) and Georgie McGeown (Painted X Ray, Issho Taiko Drummers). Their debut album Brocken Spectre is out now on Chemikal Underground Recordings.
