7. Gyratory System - The Sound Board Breathes
"Taking apparently diffuse things and combining them into a coherent whole is a big part of what we do. Having an older person in the band means we can take that principle and represent it in terms of the actual line-up and the way we appear visually to the audience - it gets them ready for the kind of thing they are going to hear, even if they don't know it. Also, all generations have different influences and ideas and this means we can draw on more of them, so the music is often the product of things not all of us know about." Dr Andrew Blick, Gyratory System
