Queen Dome - Pleasance Dome



How unlikely is your fleeting existence?

This nine-piece, multi award-winning progressive brass band embark on a curious audio-theatrical journey. Replete with intricate rhythms, enormous choral harmonies, dynamic choreography and ruminations about stars and happenstance.

This is gig-theatre which contemplates our baffling origins and the tiny stories entwined within. Bursting with triumphant horns, fascination and wonder.

‘Completely extraordinary’ (BBC Radio 6 Music).

‘High-energy progressive brass’ (Guardian).

In praise of Perhaps Contraption’s previous album Mud Belief: ‘A glorious symphony of strangeness that embraces and reconfigures such diverse influences as contemporary classical, jazz, post-minimalism and the avant-garde’ (R2 Magazine).
