    “ELECTRO NUDE” is the new live show by THE IRREPRESSIBLES; it is an electronic re-imagining of their previous distinctive performances. McDermott’s vocals are set to epic electro soundscapes, accompanied live by The Irrepressibles’ drumming duo IAN TRIPP and JAMES FIELD on electronic kits, and their pianist SARAH KERSHAW on synths and live tubular bells. It is a display that features powerful choreography, bold new costumes, a runway-lit catwalk and sound activated lights with iconic mirror ball effects. Music performed consists of beat-heavy new tracks from The Irrepressibles’ forthcoming album “NUDE” including “Arrow”, and yet to be released singles “ New World ”, and “Tears of a Clown”. There will also be live performances of remixes of tracks by from MIRROR MIRROR and new tracks by other electronic music artists featuring McDermott’s vocals set for release this year. More details of these to be announced. The group will also perform electro-choral numbers “Spy Super Hero” and “FINALE” from their opera with Hotel Pro Forma “WAR SUM UP”.

    Band Profile:
    Bituin is a band that recreates traditional Hispano-American songs with a non-traditional format (bass, drums and two voices). A creative use of two voices, plus the communication and freedom of the instruments that accompain them, has been interesting for music and art lovers since 2010.
    After being invited to the 2011 and 2012 versions of the “Ibague Jazz Festival” in Colombia, this band from Bogota receives the first prize of the competitions “Bogotá Tiene Talento 2011” and “Metropolitan Jazz 2011” organized by The Goethe Institut and the French Alliance. In November 2011, the brothers (Santiago and Daniel de Mendoza) and sisters (Juanita and Valentina Añez) of Bituin, release their CD “Paisaje Abierto”. In 2013 Bituin clasifies to perform at the open-air festival “Jazz al Parque” and in the competition “Jóvenes Intérpretes 2014”.
