Argentinean turned Southamptoner Ignacio Agrimbau has led an interesting life, composing love songs to Evangelion’s Rei Ayanami, studying under Michael Finnissy, working in music therapy and recently undertaking a research trip to Ghana. After The Rain formed in 2010 (from the ashes of his previous ensemble, The Hola) and make no distinction between low and high art, blurring influences that take in avant-garde western music, pop, anime themes, noise, free improvisation, experimental poetry and cabaret. The ensemble includes Joe Kelly and Hossein Hadisi. This is their performance at Bang the Bore VIII, 9th January 2011.
