Sound Design/ Composition






“ Ladies called Ravioli Me Away. It’s my heart aching. It’s the sound of. ..  They remind me of so much I love about the world: I could reel off lists of names like protective dressage, all bondage armour but I am just a cipher, a vaccuum at the other end of a meaningless conversation. I mean, you want descriptors? Why would you want descriptors? Their sound describes their own sound so much more obliquely than I ever could.” - Everett True

Performing at Wysing Arts Centre Music Festival, 2015


View From Behind The Futurstic Rose Trellis, 2019 - Wysing Records

What about this?...
Are you really here?
If you are, then how do you know you are?
Are you looking for confirmation in the eyes of the person sitting next to you?
Do they know you?...and if so how do they recognise you?
Is it from your jacket? Your hairstyle? Your dependable moral compass, witty remarks or bad breath?
RMA invite you to experience TVFBTFRT, a poetic, vivid and generous multimedia extravaganza that creates a stylistic and comical portal celebrating life and all who perpetually squirm in it.
An experience that offers escapism from escapism! ...a genuine contempt for continuity and a true disdain for brain bloating its audience with a standardised straightforward narrative.
A soundtrack to everything and a monument to nothing, TVFBTFRT sings and dances its way enthusiastically through inner and outer realities sifting through its characters to reveal moments of golden clarity to be shared by all.
Watch carefully now... look there through the leaves!’s YOU! ...ME! ...and every his her and them slurping from the hot steamy saucepan of consciousness! Bon appetit friends, when you wake up tomorrow you might be someone else.

Living is a Myth, 2016 - Upset the Rhythm

‘Living is a Myth’ is an incredible album, exploring symptoms of society through its overlapping patterns of ideas and music. Always inventive, clatter-some drumbeats drive the songs ever onwards, whilst the bass plunges through the fantastical worlds emerging from the woozy pools of formidable keyboard tone. RMA see themselves as agents, pointing out phenomenon and responding to it. This is conducted largely through the band’s contagious approach to song. Melody and reiteration are at the forefront, with Dorrer’s wordplay and sublime delivery racing through the songs with effortless style. Ridgway and Theobald also contribute stunning vocals, often unpinning the songs with surreal refrains and caustic angles. Moving onto the topics covered on the album, Ravioli Me Away have mutual interests in identity, politics, human relationships, love, gender, class and current affairs, and use their songs as a means to explore, debate and express such interests, using metaphor, clichéd pop references and repetition.

“I’m nostalgic for now, I travelled far ahead, I’m looking back with great affection – at this moment” sing RMA on the album’s title track. It’s hard to imagine a lyric that more perfectly encapsulates what RMA are all about. Ravioli Me Away provide the commentary to our internal narrative as we edge through life from one nostalgic moment to the next. They witness, comment and thus help us identify the means by which we must escape ourselves. - Chris Tipton (Upset the Rhythm)

The Inevitable Album, 2016 - Good Job Records 


Un-defined by genre, Ravioli Me Away’s high energy, dangerously ambitious and delusional jazzy-post-pop-punk-hip-funk sound with stylistically erratic motifs span all-known past, present and future human cultures and sub-cultures. This is social realism soaked through with a heady dose of fantasy, idiosyncratic poetics, keyboard flurries and vocal vicissitudes.
Ravioli Me Away are Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald.

Since forming in January 2013, they have performed extensively at various events, venues, festivals and galleries in the UK, France, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic and Holland. They have also recorded and released records and appeared on radio shows on 6 Music, WFMU, Resonance FM and NTS Radio.

Theobald, Dorrer and Ridgway have each been involved in the UK DIY post-punk and electronic music scenes for over a decade and formed through a mutual absurdist humour and approach to exploring identity, politics, human relationships, love, gender, class and current affairs. Using performance, art and music, their lyrics and stage presence are loaded with pop references, metaphor, satire and cliché. To date they have together written and produced up to 30 songs and have performed over 80 concerts, each high-energy and curated to reflect a different theme inspired by everyday life eg, City workers, beauty queens, sportsmen and beatnik poets to more abstract interpretations of everyday life such as luggage, snacks and e-bay. More recent performances have been iterations of their own individual alter-ego/characters.

***Ravioli Me Away see and explore symptoms of society. We see ourselves as agents that point out phenomenon and respond to it. We try to sift though it and respond to the surface by challenging audiences perceptions and expectations.
