Description

SAVED is a multi-layered, retro-mechanical music show built around rescued 70s home organs. Turned inside out, their internal spinning speakers are exposed for us to see as well as hear as Leak weaves musical joy into the surprisingly beautiful mundanity of daily life. Along with cassettes, a turntable, AM radios and a modified whisk, SAVED celebrates an analogue era where A-B-C Fun Block and One Finger Chord buttons captivated our imagination.

A sublimely mesmeric performance. Saved is a dreamscape of analogue sounds delivered by the intriguing mr Graeme Leak. It’s as if Buster Keaton and Bowie had a love child and gave him a bunch of scrap heap challenge inspired instruments to grace our ear holes with. I loved it. Not 100% sure why but the way in which Leak crafts his sounds and his delivery of mundane minutiae tickled me and left a smile across my face.

Marvellous, well crafted show - inventive, witty, and very odd!

The beauty of it is in its simplicity which as it is so well pulled off must mean that it is a complex beast, made to look so easy – and that is sheer genius right there.

The music produced is intricate but ambient and sounds great in isolation, but the process of creating it is fascinating to watch, and often amusing, if not laugh-out-loud funny.

Boldly Inventive, quirky and challenging: Saved is a clever thought-piece, and in its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, deserves to find its moment.

Saved may not be for everyone, but it was definitely for me. Its tone is so distinctive, so deliberately dowdy, so utterly just-so. It knows exactly what it’s doing and it does it sublimely.
