Multi-instrumentalists Daniel Holdsworth (The Saturns/The Maple Trail) and Aidan Roberts (The Maple Trail/Belles Will Ring) will perform their arrangement of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells on April 29 - May 5 at The Arts Centre, Melbourne. They play more than 20 instruments: pianos, organs, electric guitars, acoustic and spanish guitars, bass guitar, mandolin, tuned percussion, glockenspiel, drums, loop pedals, synthesizers, and, of course, tubular bells. In their own words, "the performance is intricately choreographed and rehearsed to present the work true to the original recording with all its multi-layered madness and subtle beauty intact."

Tickets on sale at: http://www.theartscentre.com.au/whats-on/event.aspx?id=2592

Thanks, Daniel Holdsworth

I could pay you a visit at the same time, Cam :)

No, unfortunately I don't have a signing in Melbourne, and standover tactics are usually required to get me on a plane anyway (although it can be done). I'd recommend it to my brother, who lives there, but he listens only to the kind of music played in the Last Chance Saloon. (Actually, I sent him the link to Bass or Bass and he liked it, although I think he was a bit jealous that he can't play guitar as well as Kev. But then, who can?  :laugh: )

Funny. I'm just listening to Pierre Moerlen's Gong's "Gazeuse!" and (*)hating some of Allan Holdsworth's guitar solos. ;)

Any connection between Daniel and Allan?

Anyway it will be interesting to hear (yet another) cover version of Tubular Bells if I'll ever hear it. No plans going "down under"...

(* Because of an annoying dissonant pitch shift effect)

Are all the geographically unchallenged TubeNetters booked in to the last of the gigs?  No reports or reviews yet and tubularbellsfortwo, the member, has been online a couple of times that I've seen.  Go on, make their day :)
