WARM UP FESTIVAL
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.
Don’t miss out: Free to All DMSA Students!

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. For the past ten years the AUDINT group has been researching…

Ensō Sone is an original audio-visual collaboration between Japanese psych band Qujaku and UK visual artists IMPATV. Audiences can expect an amalgam of projection methods, visual mapping, lighting and set design, co-joined with a heavy apocalyptic sound resulting in a full-blown psychedelic display to rattle the senses… + Special guests group A open the event with a spectacular new AV set.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
QUJAKU are a Japanese heavy psychedelic rock band based in Hamamatsu. Their dark and heavy psychedelia filled with rich distortion and feedback creates a unique decadent ambience which is beyond comparison. There is not only a brutality but also an ephemeral beauty behind it. Delicate yet strong, destructive guitar with feedback, repetitive rhythms, and deep, bellowing bass.
IMPATV is a collaborative video and stage production project from UK artists Isadora Darke and Jamie Robinson. Using new digital technologies and live mixing methods combined with costumes and stage design they produce immersive installations, music videos, art and music productions.
