Tin Men and the Telephone

Soweto Kinch presents Tin Men and the Telephone in concert at the 2016 Norfolk and Norwich Festival. The band plays using a smartphone app, operated by members of the audience.

The Dutch-based trio Tin Men and the Telephone, led by pianist Tony Roe, and featuring drummer Bobby Petrov and bassist Lucas Dols, is unique in the world of jazz, by playing concerts that interact in real time with a telephone app, operated by members of the audience. Taking music from sounds that surround us in everyday life, traffic noise, tannoy announcements, shopping queues, they transform these into music. Their live show from the 2016 Norfolk and Norwich Festival presented by Soweto Kinch is a riot of unpredictability. The band-members explain their highly original concept to Al Ryan, and videos of part of the concert will be on the Radio 3 website so that radio audiences can share in every aspect of this unorthodox music making.
