There will be a series of launch events taking place celebrating the recent opening of the York based Books for Amnesty shop on 42 Goodramgate. The first of these will be held on Wednesday the 12 of September, with the addition of 10% discount off all books for the evening, it will commence at 7:30 PM in their upstairs rooms. Books for Amnesty will be providing a special book browsing evening with the accompaniment of music.
This unique experience promises to simultaneously inspire both your literary sensibility and musical thirsts, with an intimate and eclectic environment encompassing the sounds of local based musicians Memory Drawing and Ten. To give you an idea of what this evening will sound like: the instruments you’ll be hearing include violas, treated guitars, and the electronic field recordings of Dominic Deane, which will be complimented by the exotic sounds of Joel Hanson’s dulcimer.
Based in Morocco the hammered dulcimer aficionado Joel Hanson has teamed up with a former member of the band Hood, Gareth S Brown and Lanterns on the Lake violinist Richard Adams, who have brought their specialities and unique sounds together culminating in a debut album entitled ‘Music For Another Loss’.
Dominic Deane’s musical project Ten, utilises layers of electro acoustics, violas, field recordings and treated guitars to create shifting soundscapes that journey from the eerie and slow to pulsating and life affirming. Having released their first two songs and appeared on London’s prestigious Resonance FM, the accomplished sounds of Ten will not fail to enthuse your stroll around the Books for Amnesty book shelves assisting you in your imaginative wonderings.
