Our new project, in collaboration with the excellent $hit$ is called In Embryo and will have its' first outing at Battersea Arts Centre this Wednesday 5th.
Mixing the band's moody and atmospheric sounds to Needless Alley's performance making techniques, In Embryo is an exploration of narrative. Using constant improvisation and collaboration, different art forms collide on stage whilst responding to the same theme, in search of a storyline.

After an initial event back in September, which culminated with an awesome amount of cash raised for Oxjam festival (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO), we are BACK at that gorgeously seedy cult-club Vogue Fabrics to showcase an evening of astonishingly good performances and DJ sets.
Curated by our Needless Alley's Director, Xavier de Sousa, this promises to be a fantastic and fun evening with some of the best artists around. And THIS TIME, all the acts are DJing through the event, until Holestar takes over!

I am very excited to be a part of the brilliant Telephone project by the Satellite Collective, which will see artists from all over the world creating artistic responses to each other.
Here is more info on it:
This game works almost exactly like the kids' game "telephone," with the message evolving as it travels, surprising and confounding the players.
Rather than simply passing the message from person to person via language alone, Satellite Collective is passing it from art form to art form. A message in music might become a poem, which might become a film, and then a dance work, and so on. The process begins with a very specific message we're "whispering" from artist to artist, but each participant will have access only to the work directly preceding his own. None of the players will know the full evolution of the message until the end. As in the original game, the progression is a secret.
So yeah, let the game begin. I was given my "whisper" today and can't wait to start working on it. Keep an eye out and we will let you know the end result of it.
