“Andrew Poppy is a veteran English avant-garde artist, - a recent discovery for me:  a character off the radar of much of contemporary criticism, he is one of the interesting outsiders presented by this festival. With a stage presence and attitude that recall both the seraphic Battiato or the histrionic David Byrne, Poppy moves between the shaft of the microphone at centre stage, the pc and the piano slightly set back. At the piano Poppy juggles a recurring matrix of Cageian melody and Philip Glass forms. The piano sonatas interleave with the almost spoken word pieces at the microphone. This alternating is bipolar both calculated and theatrical and marked by moments of surreal comedy. Its quite sui generis.”
