What do dinosaurs get up to in space?
Immerse yourself in this spellbinding interactive live improvised show!
Fresh from the release of their first track Brain Song, Spiral Dial return to Servant Jazz Quarters to celebrate the release of their second single, out on 17th April.
And what a celebration it is. Having had a close encounter with a van which left her with one hand in a splint, Liza was reduced to downloading an Internet dating app for entertainment. Nestling on her screen was a gentleman whose interests were listed as ‘space, dinosaurs and music’.
Which begged the obvious question. What does space dinosaur music sound like?
The man in question hadn’t a clue.
Spiral Dial on the other hand have been on a one handed odyssey to find out. You too can participate in this palaeontological astronomical quest! What do dinosaurs do in space? Tweet us your answers before or during the show at @SpiralDial, the weirder the better, and we will weave them into our musical web!

Liza’s life as a classical clarinettist was transformed when she was diagnosed in 2008 with a rare form of epilepsy triggered by playing certain patterns of notes.
“I had to re-learn how to play”, Liza says. “I spent several years without playing a note.”
She finally overcame this obstacle by discovering a new talent for improvising, allowing her to avoid most of her triggers.
The music for her installation INNERVATE is based on her original short story set in a world where minds are mere commodities to be disposed of at will. Everything is improvised live, so this performance will be completely unique.
Using a customized robotic tenor recorder created with the help of Leafcutter John, Liza creates hypnotic and mesmerizing soundscapes, together with David Ryder Prangley (Rachel Stamp, Adam Ant) on bass guitar and Adam Hayes on percussion.
Liza thanks Help Musicians UK Fusion Fund for their support in making INNERVATE.
