The Spirit of Gravity presents the Scope XV
Free play and experimentation with musical substance (Collectress)
Quinta is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, who has worked with the likes of Collectress, Bat for Lashes, Radiohead’s Philip Selway, Penguin Cafe, Patrick Wolf and The Paper Cinema. Her first record, My Sister Boudicca, used strings, musical saw, harmonium, piano, found sounds & samples. Quinta meets free play and experimentation with musical substance in her work, and brings a mischievous theatricality to her performances.
Improvised post noise AV set from Rick Jensen (AJU)
The Oneirologist is the solo post noise moniker for fiery Apocalypse Jazz Unit sax player Rick Jensen. A former resident of Brighton he’s been burning up the big city since he moved away a few years back. Here he puts his horn aside for a more reflective AV set improvising to his own films.

Brighton drone maven meets electric guitar mangler uptown
The final collaboration in this long running series at The Scope (you mean you haven’t noticed? Check the listings) sees Dan Powell collaborating on an acoustic set with possibly the most influential figure in The Spirit of Gravity community. Many people will only know Steve as the person who runs the electrocreche, but he has a history, including being described as “The noisiest fuck I know” by Shitmat. Here he joins Dan Powell (Static Memories, one man crime wave, OMSK etc) for a set of unplugged noise to stir the loins.
