Ages ago now, and already covered from The Paradise Perspective, but here’s some pics from the day Peter returned to see what had happened to Orchestra Cube in his absence, and Hugh came on all Toshimaru Nakamura ( of no input fame ) . . .
. . . Peter joined in just as another Orchestra member, twiddling in the effects loop . . .
. . . in in general pieces . . .
. . . I’d personally welcome a return to the conducted leadership and workshops more like the initial OC setup, especially as at the last practice, which I only briefly attended, the numbers were swelling upwards away from the potential cosy band syndrome that’s a possible trap now that there’s a core of members who know each other . . . not that knowing each other more is bad ( ! ), or I think it needs to be nasty, but . . . I reckon welcome revitalisation could come with more conviction and chaos care of our long lost conductor’s careful and carefree control . . .
