The A Cappella Ashcloud Odyssey (starring The Swingle Singers)
by Clare Wheeler (introduction) and Florian Städtler (video)
In the Western world (particularly Europe), we’re not generally accustomed to situations beyond human control. This is one reason why the VACUUM (Volcanic Ash Cloud Undermining and Usurping Mercilessly – that’s mine, you can use it) has been such a fascinating phenomenon. All over Europe people are stranded on extended holidays, trains are booked up weeks in advance, and car hire…HA!
With only one gig cancellation so far, we think we’ve done pretty well. But it’s been a hilarious week – and actually a huge amount of fun! We went to visit our friends at SpielPlanVier and Florian took a little video diary of our experience…from Luggage Forts to Black Forest Gateau, here is our latest Swingle Adventure!
