Fusing animation, music, gaming, technology and performance, our unique live shows invite audiences to enjoy a series of evolving musical adventures. Our shows are a new breed of cinematic entertainment experience in which our live onstage band perform and control a cast of onscreen animated musical characters.

Spacequatica is a 12-minute piece created especially for the Future of Sound tour organised by the music legend and pioneer Martyn Ware. As we perform both the music and characters live using our drumpads, the sounds of the various characters move around the audience in 3D space through the Illustrious Company's unique 16-speaker immersive audio system. Visually and sonically, the performance takes us on a journey down through a musical ocean - from the surface, where schools of small exotic creatures are performed like phasing xylophones, through the deeper waters populated by dangerous robotic sharks, and on to the pitch black depths, where all we see and hear are rare self-illuminating species occasionally blinking out of the darkness. Thanks to Olly Venning & Edd Dawson-Taylor for their amazing character work.
