Anchorsong - Electronic Live Act in London

Anchorsong Short Info

Anchorsong has become globally recognised for his unique live shows, which many people have described as "like watching a painter drawing on a white canvas", as he creates electronic music completely live using a sampler (MPC2500) and a keyboard, right in front of the audience. While he mainly performs solo, he frequently augments this setup with a string quartet, for a truly spellbinding show.

With his second LP "Ceremonial" released on Tru Thoughts in Jan 2016, Anchorsong will aim to further blend traditional and modern music with what is set to be a richly textured tapestry of outward-looking sounds. Expect new ground to be trodden, with tribal rhythms fitting in seamlessly with all the modern wizardry you would expect from a 21st century composer.
