The Aleph venture into the Dark Dark Wood

So this Christmas we’re doing something a little bit different… Inspired by our Christmas show Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf we’re turning Unity 2 into the Dark Dark Wood (designed by Katie Scott in collaboration with our brilliant Splatterdays artists).

And thanks to funding from PRS for Music Foundation we’ve invited four maverick musicians to come down to the wood and play.

First up on Friday Dec 9th are the Aleph (featuring Jon Hering (who first popped up on this blog here ) and Benjamin Fairfield, who are of course two thirds of Ex Easter Island Head.

Look out too for  a sample of the unique Aleph sound in Kinicho’s 360 degree sound system which will be installed in Unity Lounge throughout the Dark Dark Wood. And for now here’s amother quick taster of that Aleph sound
