This Sunday sees one of the semi-regular acoustic sessions run by Gus Glen at Catttleya’s on Charlton Church Lane, and this week promises a very special guest. Local musician Lyn Levett, most recently seen playing with the Paraorchestra and Coldplay at the Paralympic Closing Ceremony, will perform an improvised set amongst other regular performers.
From The Paraorchestra’s website:
It all began in the late 80’s. Lyn bought a Commodore 64 inch computer from Boots that had a music package and was hooked instantly. She then went on to have music lessons from Community Music Wales and become a music tutor in Cardiff. Lyn has also released a single and a twelve inch.
Lyn has cerebral palsy and produces music on a Mac using Logic Pro. She uses a trackball to input notes and other actions. Lyn also has an iPad with several music apps and operates the pad with her nose.
Today, Lyn’s aim is ‘to produce the highest possible music in my studio. I’m currently exploring performance programs for the iPad and hope this will improve interaction with other musicians’.
Lyn is highly creative and has been described as producing the ‘most dizzyingly brilliant electronic music.’ (Charles Hazlewood). Watch this space.
The entertainment starts around 8.30pm; why not go a long to watch, try Cattleya’s Thai-Tapas, or just have a drink?
