Masterclass Series… update!

Next week’s session, Mon Nov 25, with Leon Radinski Gorman has been postponed. Leon has a work commission and unable to present – we are pleased our practioners are busy – the session will be reaaranged for next semester.

Due to the situation with the academic strike action, the following week’s Masterclass with Rosanna Mead, may also be subject to resceduling to a later date but we will confirm closer to the date.

 

And a big thank you to Fraser aka Vince Vanity for a wonderful masterclass on Monday and big thanks to all those who attended.

 

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.

Ecstatic Material is a newly commissioned dynamic sound sculpture by musician and producer Beatrice Dillon and visual artist Keith Harrison which will expand and contract over back to back performances at venues across England.

This live experiment with sound and substance will be conducted through a modular system made up of malleable plastics, coloured light and multi-channel audio which is constructed, choreographed and diffused by the artists into the performance space.

Tour support comes from DJs Copper Sounds who spin copper dubplates, ceramic pots, and heavy icelandic rocks, using these materials to create a primitive and tactile form of turntablism.
