Pastoral event but not as we know it

Another interesting event from Waltham Forest becoming the first-ever London Borough of Culture is nearly upon us. It is being called a Pastoral event - the Mirth, Marvel and Maud Pastoral event on 13 September 2019 at 8 pm Presented by Luke Turner, Kirsteen McNish and supported by Helm at Mirth, Marvel and Maud, 186 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 4QH.

Culture has been instrumental in making London such a great city and the joy of living in Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford are that all the culture of London is still at your doorstep. This event held at Part of The People's Forest season Gazelle Twin’s critically-acclaimed Pastoral album is an intense exploration of a divided England, taking a look behind the picture-postcard image of our countryside.

In the video for Pastoral track, Glory, Gazelle Twin’s monstrous jester character stalks the woodland landscape around the Epping Forest pollards, a knight falls to the ground screaming. This is bold new folk music rendered with drum machines and synths, and visceral exploration of the state of Britain today. Gazelle Twin will be at Mirth Marvel & Maud with support from prolific Waltham Forest resident and experimental musician Helm, AKA Luke Younger.

Gazelle Twin Elizabeth Bernholz, is a British electronic music composer, producer and musician. Forged in a rural idyll in Middle-England. Helm is Luke Younger, a London-based sound artist and musician. He has released five studio albums and three EPs of textural experimental music, exploring a relationship between acoustic, electronic and real-world sounds.

Pastoral is part of The People's Forest season - a series of events exploring our relationship with Epping Forest, interrogating the deep bond we have with forests and woodland, and how this relationship is culturally determined. Weird and wonderful electronic sounds may or may not be your thing but living in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford gives you easy access to all of London’s cultural offers.
