We’re very pleased to present British synth/sequencer mavens AirSculpture
on Saturday, November 5th.
Bridging the worlds of kosmische, classic European space music and Schulzian-inspired Berlin School, AirSculpture has been tripping the neurons fantastique since the mid 90s, part of a rich UK lineage that includes fellow space travellers Radio Massacre International, Ian Boddy, and Wavestar.
A trio comprising members Adrian Beasley, John Christian, and Peter Ruczynski, AirSculpture arose as a reaction to a music scene that no longer reflected their tastes. The energy and edge of 70s EM had become diluted into a melange of clinical digital sounds played over safe pre-recorded backing. Most of AirSculpture’s music is created live on stage, improvised with little or no pre-planning. Over time it has evolved to a unique sound, melding driving Berlin School rhythms with engaging, flowing melodies, sometimes moving into darker ambient realms, or shifting gears with ‘danceable’ beats.
In all, AirSculpture seek to reclaim a heritage that derives its vitality from the pioneers of the past while forging new identities for the future. Across seven full length albums (of those, five are live recordings reflecting the real-time nature of the music), the trio continue to blast out into aural environs unknown, mysterious, and intangible, all elements which empower the very best that synth music has to offer.
