Hamster Theatre: Carnival Detournement
The piece titled, “The Turn of Events” boasts a placid horn arrangement atop an orchestration that seemingly mimics the sounds of a calliope in a circus as you could easily envision marionettes dangling from strings or perhaps visiting a freak show in a tent. However, the band performs these complex and for the most part, memorable works with a distinct edge along with a plethora of diversionary tactics and clever articulations. Hence, Carnival Detournement is a luminous and exhaustively congenial affair that might liberate the listener’s mind’s eye from it’s daily drudgeries!
