    "A blasting musical performance inspired by the biggest volcanic eruption of recorded history"

    Check for upcoming performances.

    "I had a dream, which was not all a dream. The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars did wander darkling in the eternal space"

    Lyrically guided by the poem Darkness by Lord Byron and additional poetry by William Blake, Year Without A Summer is a collection of 8 songs that combine Daisy Bell's avantgarde pop with the ancient bronze of the Javanese gamelan. Additional video projection and light design complete the experience.
