The second performance of the Stella Maris Drone Orchestra was in January 2004. The personnel was Ayyaz, Tim Orff, Rajinder Deo, Richard Fontenoy, Mark Pilkington & Zali Krishna. It was actually Pilkington’s first gig because Grufty Jim who had played at the first gig was unable to attend.
The venue was the infamous Speaker Palace at Andre Street near Hackney Downs station.
The audio from this track comes from sessions in September 2007 for our gig at a Drones Club/Klinker special. The PF(v) on this occasion was the core band of Alaric Peter, Richard Fontenoy & Zali Krishna. The video was produced by Fontenoy earlier this year.
Another video, produced by Krishna back in 2008 featuring music from the same session, entitled Jarre Love Dagenham Autowerks, for obvious reasons.
This incarnation of P5(iiiii) played three further gigs over the next few years. A streamlined motorik version played at the Checkpoint night at The Others in January of 2008, and there was a rather shambolic set at Off N On at Industry in June of the same year; and then in March 2010 they performed a set at Bar & Co that they’d rather forget about.
Hypostases is the first exhibition of paintings by Zali Krishna, which will be in the Beaucatcher Salon until 7th June 2013. Glimpses of other worlds: birds & beasts – real and imagined, genesis & apocalypse, surface & arcana, jostle and metamorphose.
