Immersive Sound Collective Launches New London Choirs

Singers Sound Check for the Gig

Singers Sound Check for the Gig

Following hot on the heels of like-minded creative concepts Punchdrunk and Secret Cinema, The Dowsing Sound Collective – the immersive sound collective that takes both first time and experienced singers, mixes them with pro & semi pro musicians, and gigs them all in serious music venues with full sound, light & staging production – launches in London in November.

Described by the press as a “harmonic phenomenon bursting onto the scenes like a firecracker”, The DSC is purposefully eclectic. Their aim is to find brilliant tracks, by brilliant bands (both established and new talent) and then to get under the skin of the tracks using up to sixty singers and a band of up to ten instrumentalists. They’ve attracted some heavy weight support in the music industry in the form of Bobby Aitken, legendary sound designer – as well as collaborated with bands and artists including Basement Jaxx, Boo Hewerdine and Megson.

According to founder Andrea Cockerton “it’s visceral, challenging, and utterly euphoric. People join us because they’re as nuts as we are about brilliant music, and because our gigs are absolutely gigs. The adrenalin is electric, the audiences tell us they love it, men actually join because the set lists don’t put them off, and finally we donate a proportion of gig profits to a music foundation that we launched last year, so literally every gig changes the world for someone, somewhere.”

Bands covered by The DSC include The National, Asgeir, The Wilderness of Manitoba, Rufus Wainwright, Ane Brun, Bruce Cockburn, Sigur Ros, Basement Jaxx, Supermen Lovers, The Divine Comedy, The Leisure Society, Dry The River, The Wailin’ Jennys, The Haggis Horns, King Charles, Jamiroquai, Goldfrapp, Arcade Fire & Vampire Weekend.

Rehearsals begin on 12th November in both Hammersmith & Camden, with the Union Chapel and Clapham Grand both pencilled in for March gigs. A third DSC will open in South London in February 2015.

Places are limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Both first time and experienced singers are welcome. There’s no audition for singers, but there is for band members.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
