    man one Orenophone and about 5 Boss effect pedals Oren s set moves from seemingly classical tuba pieces to soundscapes in which he will play through his table full of delays samplers flangers distortions pitchshifters and then edit the sound live and its subsequent layers of feedback to produce a sound of beauty all this while still playing His use of circular breathing is something to behold as he plays note after note without stopping while I am desperately coming up for air Oren s use of dynamics is something only learnt by a thorough knowledge of his craft and although minimalist in its approach his pieces are never tiresome If tubas ever become the next rock n roll must have I am sure Mr Marshall will be hailed as much as Robert Johnson is to any guitarist worth their salt Alan Neilson writing for Birmingham Live He takes to the stage and sits down a thin man with a green hat pulled down low over his eyes Between his legs emerges a huge custom built tuba He looks at the crowd for a second nodding in acknowledgement I stare in a mixture of bemusement and horror half memories of marching bands flashing through my mind It seems that everything but military pomp emerges from the tuba s bulbous bell Farted parps and splutterings gradually morph into resonant bass beats which with the addition of some FX pedals and masterly breath control break out into glitchy grooves Next comes an extended ear shattering burst of distorted drone and some smoky horn to finish Adam Bambury FactMagazine Take Oren Marshall who opened up last night s concert at the Purcell Room with some brilliantly gripping improvisations for solo tuba Big brass instruments seem to say jazz but Marshall started his set with abstract almost animal like noises He played acoustically wandering around the aisles and disappearing round the back of the stage Another piece was predominantly electronic employing a little chain of effects pedals that delayed and looped and eventually distorted and scrambled his tones so that we were immersed in a dense squalling tangle of fuzz and feedback all from one tuba John L Walters The Guardian Music Blog Playing up his instrument s reputation as the lumbering beast of the orchestra he began by stalking the aisles growling and grunting through his instrument sneaking up behind people and letting out a dinosaur like roar Returning to the stage he used a variety of effects pedals to loop his instrument build reverberating little chamber pieces and make it sound like a feedbacking electric guitar He went on another walkbout at the end which had the crowd in stitches squeezing himself along the rows sitting awhile in an unoccupied seat engulfing a poor man s head in the tuba s vast bell and finally disappearing through the curtain at the back of the stage all the while playing a rumbling cyclic didgeridoo like phrase Review of same gig at the Purcell
