“…and the Shuffle of Things” is Andrew Poppy’s new CD, released on 27 October and a specially created performance with videos by Julia Bardsley presented at London's Chelsea Theatre on Friday 24 October 2008.
“…and the Shuffle of Things” is inspired by Francis Bacon’s thoughts about the urge to collect things. There are dark ambient grooves, Schubert and the funk, classical piano and some oscillators accompanied by enigmatic stories of lost submarines and the head of Orpheus as a football.
“…and the Shuffle of Things” brings together compositions, improvisations and songs without singing. Described as “bewitching, beautifully crafted and highly addictive” by The Wire this is the latest work of an eclectic post modern artist who treads a path between downtempo electronica and the minimalist classical works for orchestra that shot him to notoriety almost 20 year ago.
