Natural Causes

Live film soundtracks, mercurial music

Fri 17 May, 8.30pm

Natural Causes

Four friends playing live film soundtracks, setting poems (including Ian McMillan) writing songs by email and collaborating internationally.

Hugh Nankivell’s songs, from psychotropic lullabies to frantic stomps, offer quick-fire instrument changes, fractured vocals and chamber-tight arrangements. Mercurial music, crocodile tearjerkers. Think XTC, Waits, Reich, Wyatt, Zorn.

This gig features Governor’s Songs: a song cycle written after a school governors meeting

Natural Causes have played The Vortex, Opera North, Spitalfields and Interrogate! festivals.

  • Hugh Nankivell: Fender Rhodes, Piano, Keyboards, Voice
  • Chris Dowding: Trumpet, Flugal Horn, Percussion, Voice
