Music Lover's Field Companion 05

20–22 May 2005
The Sage Gateshead, Gateshead

Taking our festivals south of the border we set out to offer a few cardinal pointers in the vast array of experimental music practices.

The programme included a special 4-hour performance by Keiji Haino - "The Secret of Music", Vibracathedral Orchestra, Kazuo Imai, My Cat in an Alien, nmperign, Takehisa Kosugi, Jandek, Shuji Inaba and Kyoaku No Intention (Munehiro Narita and Shoji Hano). Luc Ferrari and eRikm had to cancel at the last minute so Charlemagne Palestine performed in their place.
