DANIEL BIRO (electro-cosmic keyboards!)

6 May 2021 @ 8:15 pm - 9:45 pm


Next up for our In Our Own Space – Music and Conversation series, we present DANIEL BIRO (electro-cosmic keyboards!) Daniel has played at SoundCellar on a number of occasions over the years and we are now really looking forward to his latest incarnation: Daniel Biro ‘Synthrospection’: solo keyboard electro-cosmic meditations!

Ticket link at bottom of page

Taking a break from his collaborative projects with Echo Engine (avant-jazz ambient grooves), Mysteries of the Revolution (jazz-rock psychedelic) and ex-Camel vocalist/bass player Colin Bass (ambient prog songs), keyboardist/composer Daniel Biro embarks on an odyssey of monthly solo keyboard concerts, streaming from his London home studio. Starting with this SoundCellar event, the ’Synthrospections’ will make use of Biro’s considerable arsenal of vintage synths, as well as his signature Rhodes piano sound, to weave electronic cosmic ambiences together with more jazz harmonic angularities and abstract grooves.

To add an extra layer of risk, each concert will be entirely improvised. Something from nothing. No prepared beats, sequences or tunes, just impromptu stream of consciousness constructs, evoking the adventurous ‘happenings’ of early 70s electronic pioneers like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, the spirit of Miles Davis’ jazz-rock alumni Hancock, Zawinul, Jarrett, Corea, but also the ethereal moods of German ECM label sonic landscapes.

The concert will be recorded and then released on Biro’s Sargasso label.

Make sure you join us for SoundCellar Presents: In Our Own Space: Music and Conversation with DANIEL BIRO

All tickets purchased will also allow exclusive access to a video recording of the performance for one month afterwards. This will provide those who join us on the night with the opportunity to relive the whole event and also give those who cannot make it on the night, the chance to watch it all later. A link to the video will be emailed around 2-3 days after the performance.
