Submotion Orchestra return to Bristol for a special, one-off performance to celebrate the release of their ‘Unplugged Vol.ii’ EP, featuring the prism string ensemble, alongside the live band.

Since their inception in 2009, the genre-defying Submotion Orchestra have moved seamlessly between deep electronica, jazz and ambient downtempo, mesmerising audiences from Iceland to India. Now, to mark their second EP of acoustic reworkings of their back catalogue, they expand their lineup with a specially-formed string quartet for this one-time tour. Performing tracks from across their entire career, the band transport their bass-heavy and soulful sound to intimate sit-down venues, highlighting stunning string arrangements alongside the fragile beauty of Ruby Wood’s celestial vocals.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience Submotion Orchestra as you’ve never heard them before.

Support from

Simeon Walker (solo)

Prolific UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, regularly performing and touring across the UK and Europe. He has supported a variety of artists including Neil Cowley, LYR, S. Carey, Loscil, Erland Cooper & Sebastian Plano, and performed notable live sets at Latitude & Timber Festivals.

His music and live performances reflect the extremes of human experience – gentle, calm and still at times; powerful, boisterous and flowing at others, with the aim of breaking down the barrier between performer and audience, creating the opportunity for real, genuine connection through music, not just through idle, passive listening, but in meaningful, engaged participation.
