On Saturday 1st October I’ll play a mechanical techno set in the round at The Albany Deptford, south east London. Coinciding with the Deptford X festival, Sound is Sound is Sound “celebrates the curious mix of forward motion and DIY attitudes that have flourished in the SE postcodes. A highly motivated gathering of outsider sounds, exploring the logics of punk, free jazz, electronica, sound art and breakbeat, and melding them to suit the intentions of the musicians.”

sound is sound is sound showcases and celebrates the curious mix of forward motion and DIY attitudes, the vanguard and the street, which has flourished in the SE postcodes, a highly motivated gathering of outsider sounds, exploiting the logics of punk, free jazz, electronica, sound art and breakbeat, melding them to suit the perverse intentions of the musicians.
sound is sound is sound follows on from the Lewisham Arthouse monthly series of sound and music, bringing together the south east London underground, music from other London and UK scenes, and internationally renowned players in a heady and engaging mix.
The evening performance will follow a full afternoon of sound installations, workshops and interventions in and around the Albany.
TOMAGA channels percussive energy to create a collision of vibrating rhythms and tones. TOMAGA actively seeks to transport the audience to zones outside the normal limits. http://tomaga.bandcamp.com/
