Thomas Truax first came to prominence as a solo performer in the 1990s in New York as one of a group of musicians and songwriters who made up the anti-folk movement based around the Sidewalk Cafe on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. These musicians included Beck, Lach and Jeffrey Lewis. Truax invents, builds and plays his own fantastical instruments as though plucked straight from the mind of Tim Burton. Come and hear the voice of a true original performer and creative “maker” and listen to the far out sounds of bizarre instruments such as The Hornicator / Cadillac Beatspinner Wheel / Stringaling / The Backbeater / Mother Superior / Sister Spinster. Notice: No 3D Printing was used in the making of this production, just the skill and ingenuity of one person and the things he could lay his hands on!
PSCA is pleased to be working in association with Third Space Group, a new business launching in Plymouth soon geared around an eclectic programme of events in workplace settings. Thomas Truax will be spending time with students during the day and all profits from ticket sales of the evening show will be donated to the school.
