Vibracathedral Orchestra


British avant garde collective Vibracathedral Orchestra was formed in 1998 by Julian Bradley, Neil Campbell, Bridget Hayden, Adam Davenport and Michael Flower. The groups aesthetic is based on long-form drones coming straight out of the '60s tradition of eastern inspired rock and folk music exemplified in the musings of obscure hippie collective ensembles Third Ear Band, Hapshash & the Coloured Coat and Velvet Underground. Touching bases with the early classical minimalism of Terry Riley, LaMonte Young and Tony Conrad along the way, the Vibracathedral Orchestra create trance music from other dimensions. Their recorded music is strictly played live, in the home or in concert, recorded direct to two-track tape with guitars, violins, cello, banjo, mandolin, tanpura, clarinet, recorders, flute, whistles, trombone, various home-made instruments, percussion, organ, toy piano, an arsenal of casio toy organs.
