I
T
lS
alwavs a pleasure
to
welcome
for-
I
mer
Latymerians
back
to the
school,
as
I
was
the
case
when
Raph Clarkson
(class
of
1998) contacted me
last
term to
explore
the
possibility
of
a
visit
from
his band.
Raph
left
Latymer in 2005 and studied
Music at York and Oxford.
His
band,
World
Service
Project, have been collaborating
with
Oslo based
band
SynKoke,
including
performances
in
Norway and
the
UK.
The
two
five-piece
bands,
with their
dizzying
mix
of
influences
-
ranging
f
rom
jazz, rock,
metal and punk,
to
Frank Zappa,
Arvo
Piirt
and Gyorgy
Ligeti
-
gave
workshops
to
year
II,
\2
and
L3
musicians,
as
well
as
a
lunch-time
performance
to
an
enthusiastic
audience
in
the
Great
Hall.
As Charles lves
once
noted,
"Beauty
in
music
is
too often
confused
with
some-
thing
that
lets
the
ears lie
back
in
an easy
chair."
Latymer students
were
somewhat
awe-struck
by
the
bands' music,
played
with tremendous virtuosity
and at
a
con-
siderable
volume.
lves
would
have
approved
!
Thank you
to
all
our visitors.
