Nicole Rampersaud - [excerpt]

In between homes, the TONE festival was kind enough to let Track Could Bend share its space at The Baby G for an extra-early outing before their event. A touch less intimate than the typical TCB surroundings (though brought in a little closer by bringing the action down off the stage), the trade-off was a chance to have an excellent sound-tech and a big PA to listen to some electroacoustic explorations. With a tight schedule to adhere to, it also made sense to make use of The Baby G's front room for some acoustic sounds while switching over the more electronic sets in the back. The sort of place you might walk through while on the way into a show without really looking at it, it was a treat to have a listening experience in the venue's front space, with its windowed façade giving a panorama of traffic, pedestrians, and seagulls to illustrate Rampersaud's trumpet investigations.

[The next Track Could Bend, with sets from Debashis Sinha, Luyos MC and No Seas, will be taking place at its new home in the basement of Wenona Lodge on Tuesday, August 7th.]
