TDC Tunes elec­tron­i­ca night at The Inti­mate Space – per­haps the small­est venue in the UK. You can only seat 25 in the atmos­pher­ic church tow­er in Hornsey, north Lon­don so this might be true. 

Open­ing the evening was ana­log lep­er with a dra­mat­ic piece that sound­ed like a rag­ing storm. Jee­van S Khaira recit­ed some of his own poet­ry – his first read­ing – from his Post­cards from the Past col­lec­tion. TDC Tunes, who has a week­ly show on Brix­ton Radio, cre­at­ed pieces on his mod­u­lar syn­the­siz­er and cop­per ket­tles, impro­vised works that vary from uplift­ing dancey pieces to moody, ambi­ent soundscapes.

The music and poet­ry were ele­vat­ed by the visu­als (cour­tesy of 2 dig­it visu­als), cre­at­ing an immer­sive expe­ri­ence with­in the tower. 

For the last num­ber, music from both synth artists worked with the poet­ry, Jee­van choos­ing Per­cy Bysshe Shel­ley’s son­net Ozy­man­dias for a dra­mat­ic finale. 

The atmos­pher­ic venue has host­ed sev­er­al unique and mem­o­rable events; Fred Deakin of Lemon Jel­ly held an album launch here in 2019 link here.
