Presented by Notes from Underground
Am I a perfectionist? Eh, me? No, not really… Nothing I do is anywhere near perfect. And anyway, perfection doesn’t really exist. It would be ridiculous to persistently chase the impossible… No, not for me, thanks. I’m a realist. I like my misery to be rooted in something more concrete…
And so begins the unravelling of self-delusion. The exhilaration that is roller derby, a legend of a Chinese doctor, the reluctant surrender to the benefits of Google, devastating physical fractures, insolent psychological martyrdom and the ups, downs, lefts, rights and wrongs of the expected emotional pilgrimage through any respectable narrative, all make an appearance.
It’s a painful and slightly needless ramble, but misery likes company so humour pops in too.
In the words of the best cults, ‘join us…’

About the company
Notes from Underground is a genre-fusion musical project. Drawing influences from symphonic movements, jazz greats, folkloric griots, classic literature and physical theatre, they combine contemporary classical with borderline jazz and new world over hip hop breaks and Afro-Brazilian rhythms.
They integrate elements of movement and sometimes storytelling into their sets. They aim to engage thoughtfully and captivate emotionally, whilst encouraging empathy. They are attempting to revitalise the standard into a dishevelled but coherent form of expression. Expect driving beats, exquisite melodies and intoxicating live shows…
