An experiment in sound - the gliss, the whole gliss and nothing but the gliss
The idea of a Gliss ensemble was first conceived by Gong Members Daevid Allen and Steve Hillage as far back as 1974, but until 2006 there had been no performance or band with more than 2 gliss guitarists. The Gong Unconvention in Amsterdam provided the perfect opportunity to make real a long-held dream. It may have taken more than 30 years to happen but the result was out of this world and now it comes to Birmingham, this performance featuring 8 Glissando Guitarists is the only performance in the world this year.
