Mechanical Techno live set at City University (London)
On Tuesday 12th May I’m playing live at City University, using the Mechanical Techno setup. This will be my first gig in London with the expanded system, having debuted it in Newcastle a couple of weeks ago. Full details below.
Due to limited space, please ensure you sign up to this concert here:http://www.city.ac.uk/events/2015/may/dirty-electronics
This concert focuses on electronic DIY instruments.
Dirty Electronics bring spinning hard drives, feedback and over-blown woodwind together in John Richards’ new work ‘Hidden Sine’ (2015). Participants of the Dirty Electronics workshop will demonstrate their created instruments and unearth sounds buried in detritus electronics. Dirty Electronics will be joined by City University Experimental Ensemble.
Graham Dunning’s ‘ Mechanical Techno – Ghost in the machine music’ will feature vinyl dissonance for lost memories: a live dubbed rhythmical collage made of squeezed record crackle, analogue synthesizer, dubplates of field recordings, dusty shellac records and clumsily triggered drum machines.
Sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki will perform with sampler and electronics. In general, he produces work that explores the realms of sound through exquisitely designed pieces.
Pre-concert talk with John Richards’ ‘Hidden Sine’ in AG09, 6:00-6:45pm
FREE ADMISSION, all welcome.
