Noise/music investigatory set for Agency of Noise (London)

Oasis

This friday I’ll be playing a noise/music set at a night called Squirmish at the Oasis, organised by Agency of Noise.

Responding to the hypothesis that performing (with) noise is a paradox, I’ll present a pseudo-scientific investigation into the musicality of noise. The experiment will try to prove the hypothesis that by using exclusively non-musical (noise) inputs, it is possible to create a musical (non-noise) output.

For the experiment I will define “noise” as the kind of sounds normally excluded from music, and hence use tape hiss, record crackle, radio static, and outside environmental sounds as my inputs. I will sample, layer and collage these sounds to present something approaching music.

Friday 27th September, 7pm onwards
Kingsgate Workshops Trust Gallery
Kilburn, London

AN EVENING OF PERFORMANCE AND RANT
Hosted by Agency of Noise at The Kingsgate Workshops Trust Gallery.

Featuring: DAISY DIXON / GRAHAM DUNNING / POLLYFIBRE / DANE SUTHERLAND / MARNIE WATTS

Through live acts of enquiry and experimentation five artists will unravel paradoxes associated with the use of noise in art, music and the gallery space. The works consider tensions, contradictions and possible oxymorons that emerge through the use and acceptance of noise within an artistic framework.

A one off live event, Squirmish at the Oasis marks the closing of the exhibition TECH defining generations in association with Camden Arts Centre.
