Final Show - June 2017

The Visual Communication final show private view has taken place and the exhibition is now open to the public until June 21. Showing the work of final year Illustration and Graphic Communication students is on display, visitors can also see the themed exhibition Information Overload, inspired by the 1970 book of the same name by Alvin Toffler. The images shown here give a snap-shot of the shows opening night.

This years private view included a performance by Culture Dub Orchestra, a World Roots Dub band based in the Midlands, with influences from all parts of the globe. CDO explores a range of cultures, religions, backgrounds and musical styles. A heavy roots drum and bass section (crucial to the true dub sound) is coloured by a variety of instruments and sounds - adding eastern flavours. Guitar and keys deliver the essential reggae off-beat with a large palette of delays, while an array of live percussion from tabla to djembe bring it all together to take your mind on a spiritual nomadic journey. Although at the core CDO are an instrumental band they will often feature guest vocalists from varied musical backgrounds.

Members are all interconnected through previous musical projects which range through reggae, funk, soul, hip hop, ska, rock, salsa and Eastern folk- all contributing to the unique fusion of sounds.
