The Home Gig

Met with a standing ovation the length and breadth of the Cathedral, the 6th July saw us take on the stunning but challenging acoustic of Ely Cathedral. The set list was our best yet. We performed covers of tracks by European artists including The Rolling Stones, Moby and Ane Brun, but also reached across the Atlantic to Bruce Cockburn, back in time to Heinrich Isaac via Carl Orff, and performed the world premiere of a poem by Wendell Berry set to 8 parts.

The highlights were many...the Cathedral organ opening the gig with the Coldplay cover, and ending at full volume with final track along with the full band, the iPad in White Sky, 100 voices singing You Can't Always Get What You Want... and more.  

But the night was not just about the making of music. We were absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of our own charitable enterprise during the event - The Dosoco Foundation. Dosoco will be supporting music therapy, music access, music education and the innovative use of sound and music for social good, and will launch formally at our next gig, on 21st December in the Cambridge Corn Exchange.  We're looking both for advisors to guide Dosoco and philanthropists to help fund our work. If you'd like to find out more, then we'd love to talk to you.

And how did it all look? Here's some pictures from two photographers that night that give you an idea of the scale...
