    I've recently returned to Belfast from a 5-6 year stint in Brighton and have a major hankering for setting up a Sufjan type group to melodify the neighbourhood. Generally I'm looking for the following:
    Bassist
    Drummer
    Violinist, possibly plural
    Cellist
    Percussionist
    Keyboard player
    Vibraphone player
    Other obscure instrumentation considered
    Electronica bleepers will be considered as I have collaberated very fruitfully with them before and still do: see http://www.myspace.com/fallingfromspace
    To hear my acoustic stuff and solo composing, go to
    http://www.myspace.com/bennyfyfe
    If you're interested or want more info, send an email to bennyfyfe@hotmail.com with a link to your own playing and your contact details.
    Signing off peeps

    I also meant to say that if you can sing as well as play, that would be a massive bonus.

    OK, I have a few people on board now. Could those whom I PM'd get back to me (and anyone else who's interested) as I'm setting a date for the first rendezvous for next weekend or the following one. Just as a matter of interest and to get an idea of what instrumentation would be available, what instruments do you play and also have in your armoury? I see myself as the (co-)writer/arranger/front singer of the troupe so it'd be great to know regarding what soundscapes would be possible.

    If anyone else has an interest in this, especially with an unusual instrument; give me a PM or e-mail me at bennyfyfe@hotmail.com
