Raymond Scott


Imagine Raymond is a new group with a long history. Wofo, the original quintet, was extended with trumpeter Jon Birdsong, composer / producer Dijf Sanders and visual artist Victor Van Rossem.


Together they dive into the head and the music of Raymond Scott, whose countless quotations in Warner Brothers cartoons anchored his music in our collective memory.


Scott was equally brilliant in composing popular acoustic music as in inventing and composing for electronic instruments. Imagine Raymond brings a synthesis of these two worlds, presenting a unique perspective.


Don’t expect a standard tribute, rather an adventurous musical journey, supported by video footage, manipulated live.
