Let's start with something out of the mainstream ...

This event (http://ticketing.southbankcentre.co.uk/find/music/classical/tickets/wolfe-adventures-in-sound-68645) is part of "Ether, Southbank Centre's festival of innovation, art, technology and cross-arts experimentation". It may not be everyone's cup of tea but check the samples and see what you think.
Personally I can't resist the idea of a bagpipe group called the "Red Hot Chilli Pipers"; but that may be just my Scottish ancestry speaking.
From prior experience of this type of event, sound levels tend to be quite high - I've booked my own ticket in the top row of the hall.

    The pieces in the first half of the programme were somewhat challenging. After the internval the Red Hot Chilli Pipers were magnficent, well out of their normal repertoire. But the final piece - "riSE and fLY"- featuring Colin Currie as percussion soloist, was just breathtaking and more than worth the ticket price in itself. Currie used his own body as a drum kit (I kid you not) with extraordinary effect. So those of us who didn't attend, I'd say you missed something remarkable, though most of the programme did live up to the "out of the mainstream" billing. It will be broadcast on R3 shortly and I commend especially riSE and fLY to your listening - do give it time, it builds up slowly - and you'll just have to imagine the gymnastics Colin Currie got up to.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
