WE!RD SH!T with Graham Dunning : Mechanical Techno

A night of leftfield contemporary performative artwork. Graham Dunning is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects.

He also creates visual work, video and installations drawing on these themes. Plus sound and performance interventions from Neil Walker and Sseeaann Rrooee.

Mechanical Techno: Ghost in the Machine Music

The whole set up is enormously precarious and part of the drama comes from the fact that it might all teeter out of sync or collapse at any moment. If the trend in recent dance music has been to artfully engineer a certain wonkiness into an otherwise strict digital framework, Dunning has found the appeal of the precise reverse: struggling to maintain grid-like rigidity in a system inherently antagonistic to it. – Wire Magazine

Graham Dunning Mechanical Techno

Graham Dunning [b. 1981] is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. He also creates visual work, video and installations drawing on these themes.

“Originally a studio project for making recordings, I now also perform live using the Mechanical Techno method. Several looping records spin on the same axle, ensuring they stay approximately in time with each other. I layer up locked groove records, audio triggers to analogue synths, mechanically played percussion such as a cowbell or a cymbal, and mechanically triggered drum machines. I take all these inputs and perform a live dub, mixing down to two channels live in one take.”
