WARM UP FESTIVAL call out

WARM UP FESTIVAL

ARTIST CALL OUT
 
We are looking for emerging artists/designers to showcase at our event and have small grants available. Our deadline for applications is 20th Feb 2020.

Warm Up Festival, Aug 21-23 2020, is a new three-day music festival set in the pine forests of Hertfordshire: 
https://www.warmupfestival.co.uk/.

Our vision is to engage all the senses in an immersive environment by bringing captivating contemporary art to our woodland setting. We are looking for art in the form of unique sculptural works, curious installations, bespoke light pieces, performance art, and video work either pre-existing or site-specific proposals.


‘Home is where the house is’ is our family motto. As such, we are particularly interested to find artists that explore the concept of ‘home’ because community is at the heart of our festival. A take on the theme can be abstract or entirely literal. We are also open to other artworks/proposals that do not necessarily adhere to this concept.


Warm Up is a visionary pillar of the London club scene, earning itself a reputation as one of the most respected dance music communities in the city, famed for its legendary parties, welcoming atmosphere and forward-thinking sound palette, representing the best in techno, house, progressive and electronica.

AUDINT
UNSOUND: UNDEAD
A daytime workshop with evening performances from the sonic arts group AUDINT and their affiliates.

AUDINT is a London-based art collective operating across the fields of sound, performance, theory/fiction, film and installation. Following recent exhibitions and performances at Spike Island and Tate Britain, this event opens a window into the themes explored in their recent Book UNSOUND: UNDEAD. Working at the intersection between the latest sonic theory and practice, AUDINT push contemporary sonic making and thinking into new realms, between the real and the fictional, the living and the dead.

This workshop and live event extend the collective’s research with performances and presentations from AUDINT members and collaborators, including Eleni Ikon, Agnès Gayraud, Jenna Sutela, and Anne Duffau (TBC)

Afternoon seminar // 2-4pm // SPECIFIC DISSONANCES
Eleni Ikoniadou, Al Cameron and Caleb Madden will explore the perceptual and cultural peripheries of the sonic in a seminar based around contributions to the recent AUDINT – UNSOUND: UNDEAD book.

For the past ten years the group has been researching the periphery of sonic perception (unsound) and its potential to activate a continual intersection between fiction and fact, pressuring thought to become something other than what it has been. The group’s recent volume Unsound: Undead collates 64 new essays to probe how unsound serves to activate the undead. Contributors from a variety of disciplines chart these warped zones, mapping out a zigzagging timeline stretching from the 8th century BC (the song of the Sirens), to 2013 (acoustic levitation), and speculatively extending into 2057 (the emergence of holographic and holosonic phenomena).

Evening event // 7:30-11:30PM // UNSOUND: UNDEAD * brief descriptor for each act to follow.
A series of live performance:
Eleni Ikoniadou and Caro: The Lament – (voice and live electronics)
Agnes Gayraud – (voice and glossolalia piece)
Jenna Sutela, and Anne Duffau

For as long as recording and communications technologies have existed, the potential of the vibrational continuum that connects sound to infrasound, ultrasound and other inaudible frequencies has been evoked to access anomalous zones of transmission between the realms of the living and the dead.

SOUNDS at The Phoenix this Wednesday Oct 16

 

Sounds is curated by Phoenix artist, scientist and musician Ed Briggs. He works with ‘theatrical substances’ such as electronics, instruments, biological material, noxious, volatile chemicals, lasers and lenses to make sound and performance. He is currently working on an AHRC funded practice-based PhD looking at artists re-enacting and modifying scientific experimental practice.

 

On 16 October we’ll be joined by Bobby Barry. Bobby makes improvised electronic music mostly using mundane household objects – a shaver, electric toothbrush, pencil sharpener – eking out rich textures and layered harmonies from the waves of electromagnetic resonance emitted by them. An album of collaged field recordings, Through Acheron, was recently released by WIAIWYA Records, and, with the duo, Far Rainbow, Bobby has also released several albums through labels including Fractal Meat Cuts, Slightly Off Kilter and Linear Obsessional.

Date: 16th October

Time: 6.30pm – 8.30pm (Doors at 6.30pm, Event at 7pm)

Tickets: £5 / £2.50

 

Presented as part of Wednesdays at Phoenix.

OUTLANDS present SEMICONDUCTOR & EARTHEATER Fracture Patterns

Thursday 13 June

Support: Olivia Louvel

Fracture Patterns is a live collaboration between UK artist duo Semiconductor and New York musician and producer Eartheater.

Doors 7.15pm
Show 8 – 10.30pm

This original commission by the Outlands Network combines large-scale multi-channel video works by Semiconductor with a new live soundtrack and performance by Eartheater, fusing both into a compelling theatrical production.

Eartheater explores experimental pop and fantasy combining her genre-breaking musical production with a singular visual aesthetic. Semiconductor’s visually and intellectually engaging artworks explore the material nature of our world and how we experience it through the lenses of science and technology.

Together, they invite audiences into the noise field, as they explore the collision and collusion of their respective practices.
