TYBURNIA - Dead Rat Orchestra

Dead Rat Orchestra present a live soundtrack performed to James Holcombe’s 16mm experimental documentary film TYBURNIA, which explores the enduring influence that public execution has had on the UK’s socio- political, historical and cultural identity.

The compelling soundtrack is comprised of archaic ballads composed by, or for, those condemned to ‘dance the Tyburn Jig’.

About Dead Rat Orchestra:

For over a decade DRO have effortlessly remained the UK’s most original and unconventional live act by challenging traditional concert settings and bringing an innovative performance aesthetic to our music. Our performances include flailing axes, sweat, salt and sawdust and 2000 shards of micro-tuned steel, and purpose cast bronze meat cleavers ringing out in shimmering joy.
