The David Hall
3CW's music has often been described by critics and audiences as "cinematic", rooted as it is in specific landscapes and journeys, and now they're bringing film into the heart of their live performance. Commissioned by and produced in partnership with St George's Bristol, the Watershed, and the 2017 Filmic Festival, Three Cane Whale 'At The Pictures' sees the band performing live to twelve brand new short films created by thirteen filmmakers & visual artists in response to 3CW tunes of their choice - including cutting-edge animations, lo-fi shadow-puppetry, alfresco contemporary dance, and slowly shifting landscapes from Cornwall to the Lofoten Islands.
Expect a stage strewn with upwards of 15 instruments (some familiar, such as trumpet, mandolin, & acoustic guitar; some beguilingly unusual, including the eerie bowed psaltery & a late-Victorian Scottish acoustic keyboard called the Dulcitone), allowing for some striking multiple instrumental combinations and an overall soundworld unlike any other.
