Explorers Society is an audio-visual project from Cambridge. We combine the narrative storytelling of cinema with the sensory experience of a music concert to present a live performance where audiences travel through the past and the present, the real and the remembered.
Explorer’s Society have played venues as grand as the King’s College Chapel, as sweaty as the backroom of Relevant Records and as quiet as the reception room of a small art gallery for the Chinese Festival.
The band grows from solo instrumental performances of our albums, to quartets to the full post rock ensemble of a dozen members. Each offering the best experience for the size of the space.
In addition to the music, the visual presentation scales to the experience. the classic cinematic experience designed around any typical 16:9 video projection. The film has also been adapted to multi-screen projections using circular screens. You can see this set up within our performance within the Chapel below.
The story we tell throughout the performance is easily adapted to the spaces we play within. We have told a five scene narrative mixing the best tracks from each album, the full album from start to finish and also a longer combination of all albums in a feature length cinematic piece.
