Pamplemousse presents a potpourri of proliferous explosions through exquisitely intertwined introversion and exhibitionism. Bookended by two fantastical takes on tape music – Jessie Marino’s Guillaume de St. Cloud Suffers a Violent Dazzling and Dave Broome’s Ominousty – the programme also features the fifth in Andrew Greenwald’s devilishly algorithmic series (A Thing is a Hole in a Thing it is Not (v)), Natacha Diels’ extravagant dreaming and mis-wakening (Child of Chimera), and Bryan Jacobs’ reinterpretation of Life Itself, as seen through the eyes of two slide whistles (Organic Synthesis Vol. 1). Performing their own works that playfully question traditional concepts of sound and music performance, Pamplemousse links acoustic and electronic sound worlds by blending innovative methods of sound production with extended instrumental techniques. Each of the Pamplemousse members specialises in a unique aspect of composition, from Greenwald’s micro- detailed instrumental writing and Marino’s experimental theatre with electronics to Jacobs’ electro-mechanical musical robotics. Their compositions on this programme play with conventional perspectives of quality and taste with a critical eye and a whimsical grin.
