Watch Double Decker Music Series vol. 5, featuring King Britt & Keir Neuringer
Last month’s Double Decker Music Series video showcased the performances of electronic composer King Britt and multi-instrumentalist/poet Keir Neuringer.
Double-decker buses normally zip around Philly every day, showing off the city’s rich history to tourists. Series founder Sebastian Petsu thought that since Philadelphia has such an extensive music scene as well, why not combine the two in a one-of-a-kind tour experience? Thus, the Double Decker Music series was born. It’s an intimate mobile concert and a guided tour on an open-top bus.
The June tour group was treated to a poem and a highly energetic, improvisational saxophone composition from Neuringer. After that, King Britt showed off his eclectic, re-contextualized electronic music. Both provided a breathtaking soundtrack for the open-top drive around Center City.
Watch the installment below, and keep an eye out for future DDMS sessions.
