A COMPLETE HISTORY OF SPACE MUSIC
We have invited various artists to address the music of the space pioneers.
May Ming reinterpret Les Baxter’s Music Out of the Moon (chosen as Neil Armstrong’s personal cassette on the Apollo 11 mission)
Paddy Steer recalibrates music from Joe Meek’s “I Hear a New World”
LA77 rewires Dick Hyman s “Moon gas”
Matt Halsall plugs in his trumpet for some Classic Space Jazz
Ken Hollings connects suburbia to outer space in his lecture “Welcome to Mars”
Massonix will perform “Pulsars”, a suite for radio waves from the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope
LUNAR MODULE CEREMONY
We have invited various model makers to reconstruct “The Eagle”. But will she fly? “You ve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue!”
The Mercury Seven a DJ team brought together from a rigorous selection process of clinical, endurance and psychological testing. Who will be first in orbit: Kelvin Brown, Graham Massey, John Mc Cready, LA77? Only four survived.
RECLAIM THE MOON
Aware of the fact that NASA’s free footage has been used to death in trippy visuals from the 1960s through to the present day, we will celebrate its overuse by using it to death. It’s all we’ve got left!

Conspiracists and doubters: we provide a room for your turgid debates (the anechoic chamber at Salford University).
June 2009 - Biting Tongues - Lonely Creatures - BIG VaudeVille, Manchester Green Room, Friday 19th June 2009
Lonely Creatures: Six Short Films by Howard Walmsley and Ken Hollings.
Featuring live deconstructed soundtrack by Howard Walmsley Graham Massey and Ken Hollings with intense interventions by Hot Bone.
Lonely Creatures: Six Short Films by Howard Walmsley and Ken Hollings. A Spanish tale of romance that drifts alarmingly away from its starting point; a Japanese scientist obsessed with notions of unrequited love; an announcer struggling to recap the increasingly complicated plot of an old television serial – welcome to the world of the Lonely Creatures.
Eternally doomed to disappointment, these are voices we only ever get to overhear. Caught up in telephone conversations, muttering to themselves or simply repeating the words written by others, the Lonely Creatures remain exposed and vulnerable even when no one is listening to them – and yet somehow they keep on going.
The above image is a screen grab taken from 'Lonely Creatures 5': the one audience participation moment scheduled to take place during the entire evening.
