Produced by Scissor Kick
Saved is a multi-layered, retro-mechanical music show built around rescued 70s home organs. Turned inside out, their internal spinning speakers are exposed for us to see as well as hear as Leak weaves musical joy into the surprisingly beautiful mundanity of daily life.
Along with cassettes, a turntable, AM radios and a modified whisk, Saved celebrates an analogue era where A-B-C Fun Block and One Finger Chord buttons captivated our imagination.

“Its tone is so distinctive, so deliberately dowdy, so utterly just-so. It knows exactly what it’s doing and it does it sublimely”
Lyn Gardener for StageDoor
“Boldly inventive, quirky and challenging: Saved is a clever thought-piece, and in its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, deserves to find its moment.”
“it is a complex beast, made to look so easy – and that is sheer genius right there”
The Fringe Review
“Funny, skilful, engaging, tense, inventive and dynamic”
Graham Rose, Creative Director, Glasgow Science Centre on Saved
