Info for Live from Studio 2



The English band called GoGo Penguin looks like a jazz trio – you know, piano, bass and drums. But their inspiration comes from electronic music, Minimalism, and the reggae-inflected style known as jungle. All of which gives their acoustic music has a very modern, motoric sound. GoGo Penguin’s last American concert was a live silent film score earlier this year at a New Sounds Live event; now they’re about to play online in the legendary Abbey Road studio that The Beatles recorded in.

“We didn’t want to perform in an empty venue,” bassist Nick Blacka said with the announcement. “Somehow it just felt weird trying to create the energy of a concert in an empty room, but we had recorded an EP in Studio Two back in 2015 and loved the space and somehow it just made sense to film a show here.”

Drummer Rob Turner also added, “When we perform we’re always reacting to each other but also the crowd. The people and the energy in the space is as much a part of the performance as we are. Studio Two is imbued with the ghosts of all the incredible music and musicians that have performed there. It has an atmosphere all of its own. You really feel the expanse of time, how much has happened before you and how much will continue to happen after you.”

GoGo Penguin
Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music. Their album v2.0 (Gondwana Records) was named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year in 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed a three album deal with Blue Note Records (France) and released the debut Blue Note album Man Made Object in 2016. More recently they have been touring their own unique score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi.
