We’re delighted to be bringing Peter Broderick to St Michael’s!


Veteran Erased Tapes recording artist Peter Broderick set to release new studio album Partners on 19 August 2016.

For close to a decade, Portland’s Peter Broderick has cut his own unpredictable path through the world of contemporary music. So far, his wanderings have led him from solo works into the realms of film, dance and documentary scores, as well as art installations.

Now Peter takes that unpredictability one step further. For his latest album, a series of voice and piano recordings, he experiments with chance, surrendering an entire song’s composition to the roll of dice.

As he explains below in an email to Erased Tapes founder Robert Raths, it was John Cage’s tendency to remove himself from his music, to somehow automate his own process, which inspired the strange mechanics with which this record was created.

In the words of Cage himself, ‘the world is teeming; anything can happen’.

Tour support comes from Brigid Mae Power. The Galway-based, Tompkins Square-signed musician cites Debussy, Townes Van Zandt and Tim Buckley as influences, and her latest release – recorded by Peter Broderick – was featured on Pitchfork.

This will be one of the first public concerts in St Michael’s since its recent re-opening, having been closed since 2004. The Roman Catholic church was founded in 1859 and became the heart of the Little Italy Community in Ancoats.
