Live stream duo with Amy Cutler for The Old Police House

TOPH Housebound #9 www.twitch.tv/theoldpolicehouse

Friday 22nd May, 20:00 – 00:00

Me and Amy Cutler will play a live set with handmade visuals and sound, using 35mm slides, torches, glow-in-the-dark goo, tapes, field recordings, synths and amplified objects.  The real-time film & sound collage will draw on DIY laboratory practice, dubious experiments and eerie coincidence. A resceduled perrofmance following the death of a laptop moments before starting a few weeks ago.

Full lineup below:

Yes yes yet again. Onward flails the esteem-powered circus tent on wheels of pompous ire. Lo self-moving sisypheans will call forth the this lot:

BARTIIRA
A new continent enters the fray! Live from Brazil, a warming hostile brew of serrated-edge plantmatter. Folded and refolded battery-acid-forged steel wool deep in the cheek, vibing vibing vibing.

KAPIL SESHASAYEE
Glaswegian ultra-post-rock guitar/laptop extravagations. Songform stretching spiderweb style, like dub shatteration on the axis of space rather than time, imbued with the voicing of the unacceptable.

GRAHAM DUNNING AND AMY CUTLER
Previously curtailed by laptop death, now a phoenix-like salvaging stagger. The egg-slicing mechanism will leap from the QVC of your nightmares onto finely plated noise-cress. The crinkles will spread from the corner of your eye across the entire ocular plain. It will I’m tellin’ ya!

ADAM CAMPBELL AND TINA KREKELS
Microidation of tubic lung-lunge through serial electunneling aparratus. A fine particulate matter to fibreglass you for a sideways look. Rapidly perishing.

WEIRD BITCH
The weird bitches whomst in other lives is PETRONN SPHENE and SLAYLOR MOON will bitch weirdly across the optifibres. Mindful electric filth of quarantine cooperage will be vomited forth into your baby bird mouths. Will what they do.

YAKKA DOON
Oak-aged heartcraft from the pitscarred heathland of County Durham. Starkfelt sketchings of lifespaces through flat protestant vowels and strictly necessary guitar-bedding.

HUGH FEARNLEY WHITTINGSTALL
Anon brit-squank legend dons mantle of dehyphenated river cottager. Melted carrier bags of a certain calibre as a fine granite worktop substitute in a pinch. Bank voles all over the shop.

+ MORE TBC?

 

PANOPTICON Album Launch – Half-life with rave sounds playthrough stream

“The research consists of four main phases: The first phase involves extraction of the silhouette of an individual. Calculating the gait period or gait cycle of the individual follows this. Finding the sum of silhouettes is the next step. Finally, similarity score computation and matching process is performed for recognition. Any two images when compared using root mean square value are said to be similar if the value falls under the given threshold.” 1
 
“Spend a little bit of time with neural networks, and you realize that anyone holding something in their hand is likely to be identified as someone ‘holding a cellphone,’ or ‘holding a Wii controller.’” 2

Shelly Knotts is an improviser who performs with computers and other humans. Interests in code, data and networks have lead her down strange and diverse musical paths from electroacoustic composition, through jazz and noise music to algorave. She experiments with generative and AI techniques and opinionated algorithms to make music. She has performed at numerous Algoraves and other live coding events worldwide, solo and with collaborative projects including algo-pop duo ALGOBABEZ. In 2017 she was a winner of BBC Radiophonic Workshop and PRSF ‘The Oram Awards’ for innovation in sound and music.

Tamu Nkiwane is a multimedia Artist, working within the realms of sound and 3D. Interested in found sounds, tapes, loops and installations.
Performance: Marbles in Spiderland
“In the performance I will be working with found tapes, Nanoloops, keys and guitar. I will attempt to make a soundtrack to a series of shorts I’ve written which will be read by different people. I will call them live and have them read aloud the text – a series of four short narrations from the point of view of a nameless character. ”

LEON TRIMBLE
Leon Trimble is an Audiovisual Performer currently researching the implications of the performer/conductor/magician through the livecoding of analogue audiovisual circuits and card tricks.
performance: Wizard Woden – choose your own (Livecode) adventure!
Leon will be using polls to create performance – choose letters from the name of the gravity synth and The Wizard will livecode with those letters. The Wizard will then turn these into glyphs to livecode with, and animate the corresponding runes. choose wisely, some of them will not produce sound!
