GoGo Penguin ’22
GoGo Penguin ’22
Festival Marquee (Custom House Square)
Friday 29 April 2022, 8.00pm
GoGo Penguin have been internationally hailed as electrifying live performers, innovative soundtrack composers, and as a collective who channel electronic and club culture atmospheres alongside minimalist, jazz and rock influences to create music that pulses and flows from the dancefloor to meditative inner-worlds, transporting us into brand new realms.
They appear tonight performing music from their 2020 Blue Note Records release, the self-titled GoGo Penguin, together with new music and favourites from their luminous back catalogue.
2022 also marks the touring debut of the band’s latest member, drummer Jon Scott, who brings his own uniquely propulsive style to the Manchester based trio’s exhilarating music.
GoGo Penguin are: Chris Illingworth, piano, Nick Blacka, bass & Jon Scott drums
Plus Joe Reiser sound production
We are grateful to the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for the loan of the Steinway D Piano, for the purpose of this event.
‘The taut synergy between racing, pulsing, frenetic percussion and looping leaping keyboard rollercoasters… draw listeners ever deeper into their dicey slipstream’ (****Mojo)
‘Powered by fluttering, junglist drums, slithering bass lines and an increasing bank of Eno-esque digital manipulations. Hypnotic stuff.’ (The Guardian)
‘Glistens with niggling bass and stabbing piano chords …..contemporary British jazz’s great experimenters’. (Bearded)
‘Meticulously structured, deftly paced and futuristic … owes as much to 1990s drum and bass as to jazz …hypnotic and quietly epic.’ (****Music OMH )
