Daniel O'Sullivan & Dream Lion Ensemble perform VELD and other popular favourites.

Daniel O’Sullivan is a London based composer and multi-instrumentalist. Working across of range of musics and artistic platforms he has made a strong impact on the international avant community. Whether solo or in his varied collaborative projects, O’Sullivan’s work is remarkable in the way it infuses familiar everyday experience with traces of the uncanny, the secret and the magickal.

Traces of his many projects all meet and mingle in his new solo album “VELD”: from his solo music as Mothlite to the lysergic songcraft and space-time vortices of Grumbling Fur and Laniakea, the reality-distorting zones of Æthenor and Ulver, the electronic pop of Miracle (with Zombi synth maestro Steve Moore), and his recent involvement with another pioneering London group, This Is Not This Heat.

Released June 2017 on Tim Burgess’ curated imprint O Genesis Recordings “VELD” is one of O’Sullivan’s most immediate and moving pop albums to date, yet one that’s strikingly dense and allusive, alive with enticing sonic diversions, hypnotic mantras and eerie biomechanical rhythms.

For this performance Daniel will be joined by Knut Jonas Sellevold (piano, synths), Alex Ward (clarinet, guitar), Frank Byng (drums, percussion), Astrud Steehouder (voice) and Christos Fanaras (bass).

Support on the night will come from Woven Skull (Leitrim/Dublin) and Paper Dollhouse (London).
