Philip Sheppard and James Lavelle present REDUX at the 2018 Festival of Sound – Sept. 27, 2018, 8:00 – 10:30 PM
reinterpretations of 20 years of collaborations
UNKLE co-founder James Lavelle and Philip Sheppard have worked together for two decades resulting in numerous tracks with UNKLE, movie soundtracks, installations and live performances.
This unique one-off live show sees them deconstructing past and future work, collaborative and solo, including hits from UNKLE, movie scores, games and many others, with state of the art sound and visuals.
Vernon Hamblin, producer of the Festival of Sound, says, “adding James and Philip to the already magnificent roster of talent emphasises the show’s commitment to delight its visitors. Not only do we have a musical legend in James, but also Philip who has worked with some of the biggest names in music, tech, sport and film. This one-off show isn’t just for music or Unkle fans, but anyone interested in movies and video games too as Philip has worked on some award-winning projects in these fields. His career has seen him collaborate with the likes of David Bowie and Grace Jones and visitors will be able to receive first hand insight into his experiences with them.”
Philip also delivered a keynote, Shut up and Play the Cello, on Sept 29, 2018 from 2 – 3PM.
“Philip Sheppard is the Rick Wakeman of the Cello! Apart from being an astonishing musician and arranger he also has a parallel career as a very funny, clever and engaging raconteur. Miss him and you’ll only have yourself to blame!” – Vernon Hamblin, Producer, Festival of Sound
“From the first stroke of the bow at Thursday night’s opening concert we all knew we were in for something very special indeed from Philip Sheppard. And he didn’t disappoint.His exquisite musicianship, solo and with James Lavelle on Redux, was the perfect start to the music focused Festival of Sound. The audience was simply spellbound and this continued on Sunday with his incredible “Shut up and play the Cello” seminar. A witty comic, virtuoso cellist and all round great guy and we count ourselves extremely honoured to have had Philip’s presence at our event.” – Phil Hansen, Public Relations, Ash Communications
