An experimental performance exploring improvisation, collaboration and overlapping material between six diverse artists.
The performers will be:
Iranian-born British Music Producer Farz crafts emotive electronica, pushing a sound deeply rooted in breakbeat culture. Sonically explorative and highly textural, Farz Hakimifard’s work serves to challenge the listener. Currently working on an all-hardware live set-up largely unseen in the 170bpm realm, exciting things lie ahead for this producer.
Drummer, percussionist and producer, Frank Byng is as innovative as he is versatile. The Slowfoot records co-fiounder currently plays with This is Not this Heat, Snorkel and Crackle amongst others.
Merlin Nova is a musician, sound, movement and performance artist. Moving through a variety of mediums she expresses an array of feelings and ideas. Her debut E.P. Protect Your Flame was released early 2018 on Blank Editions. Recently her practice has evolved into working closely with movement and dance practitioners for whom she improvises music.
Keith Moliné (Pere Ubu, Prescott) is a guitarist with an interest in alternate tunings, microtonality and odd effects. The Guardian described his music as having “an eerie, glittery quality: it could soundtrack almost any of David Lynch’s films; equally, we could be listening to aliens in outer space.”
London based, genre fluid, psychedelic musician/ composer, Kavus Torabi, has been sorting the heads from the haircuts since the late 90’s. The perennial square peg, Torabi is a mainstay of several cult bands, including Knifeworld, Cardiacs, Gong and Guapo.
Musician/composer Chloe Herington collects sounds and diagrams, composing predominantly for bassoon, saxes, electronics and found sounds to explore synaesthetic memory and collective experience. As well as fronting her own project, VALVE, she currently plays with Lindsay Cooper Songbook, Knifeworld and Hirvikolari.
