Ritual/Drone performance with AAS (London)
AAS – SAGE ASH COPPER FIRE
SUNDAY 6 OCTOBER 2013
SAGE ASH COPPER FIRE will be performed live at Voxish, The Glass Factory, Hackney Wick
featuring: WE / Annabel Frearson, Joe Howe and Julia Scott / AAS / Rosie Ridgway
In conjunction with Art Licks Weekend, xero, kline & coma will be hosting an offsite evening of performance art that takes live music as its medium.
Challenging the individualism of the Western pop song, WE reveal the latent politics of the love song and transforms chart hits by annihilating their liberal subject and replacing it with a collective consciousness. Through the simple substitution of the plural for the singular, intimacy becomes a form of collective action and the unique the universal.
Annabel Frearson, Joe Howe and Julia Scott
JUSTINE TIME BY LAKE is a new performance by Annabel Frearson, Joe Howe and Julia Scott combining words from Frankenstein with Max/MSP to produce Immense Soup Her Cold Hide Her Day To Flow Systems Transmit Head As Mass Ages From Object To Object.
AAS creates itself through chance.
AAS are sage ash and copper fire,
bringers of the drone,
scourge of the future.
Rosie Ridgway uses the mechanisms of music to generate a system of events that subvert the original message or intention of the song. She is interested in reinterpreting the presentation of music as being something other than the concert and its possibility to generate alternative activities or action.
