Justice Yeldham – Streaming from Sydney
What’s been described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is in fact the unique work of Lucas Abela aka Justice Yeldham, a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. In his now infamous show which has astonished and bemused countless people in over 45 countries, Abela ecstatically purses his lips against panes of amplified glass whilst deftly employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries, to turn the discarded shards into crude musical instruments. The results are a wild array of oddly controlled cacophonous noise teetering on the edge of music. This one of a kind act re-defines the expression ‘don’t try this at home’ and quite simply needs to be witnessed to be fully appreciated, let alone understood.

Marlo Eggplant – live recording from Los Angeles
From Baltimore and based in Leeds, Marlo’s music is often borne of barely perceptible tones and textures that slowly bloom and erupt via the use of autoharps, contact mics, vocals and loops.

Graham Dunning – Streaming from locked down London, UK
Very active throughout the UK and Europe, Graham Dunning is an artist, musician and producer using turntables and electronics across experimental music, techno and improv. He is well known for his “Mechanical Techno” live set which playfully uses objects on turntables to create sound. He also runs a tape label called Fractal Meat.

MUSIC:

𝗽𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗻 (DJ)
Never afraid of doing things differently, patten as a producer, visual artist and performer shows that his extreme, abstract approach to a variety of club sounds pushes ever further into the unknown. Running the label and iconic creative platform 555-5555, patten’s extensive career has seen him present an immersive audiovisual show at the Tate Modern and has many well-acclaimed releases, with 2019’s epic FLEX album proving his status as a unique figure in the creative underground scene.

𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐦 𝐃𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 (Live Mechanical Techno Set)
Experimental drifting techno rocked with hints of acid and sizzling rhythms all within an extraordinary live installation. Created mechanically with turntables, records, and an impressive array of objects, it’s a club experience unlike any other, with unparalleled ingenuity and skill. Graham is one of the most exciting artists and engineers of today’s scene and his performances are always unpredictable and highly entertaining.

𝐌𝐨𝐨𝐧𝐛𝐨𝐰
Moonbow is the sonic brainchild of London based multidisciplinary artist El Hardwick. Their colourful DJ sets are an exercise in storytelling that is at once euphoric and melancholic, whilst delving into both the old and new. Often known to make an appearance are: chopped ‘n’ spliced vocals, silky psychedelic melodies, wormhole inducing percussion, and bass vibrations so heavy that no nearby drinks are safe from spillage.

𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐨 𝐒𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐚
Known for his interdisciplinary approach to diverse fields of contemporary techno, while exploring its many different forms, always presenting idiosyncratic precision and elegant obscurity. His background in experimental sound during research at Music Conservatoire and being awarded by taking part of C.EL.EN (Conservatoire Electroacoustic Ensemble) helped to develop his unique style which today often channels roots in ambient, dub and broken-beats while injecting some avand-garde influences. Mariano’s career has seen him performing at various media art festivals alongside artists such as Caterina Barbieri, Shackleton and Herman Kolgen.

Cyborgian goddesses returning to the land in the post-society era, they are preparing for the funeral of Mother Nature. She is not dead yet, but she is very weak. The dystopian, radical and eerily beautiful performance will take the audience into a raw encounter with the power of the goddesses.

A small quest to make sense of the world. Navigating through space and time, shaping something tangible to hold on to, remember and come back to. I wish to create a space in which I find comfort, understanding, and solace. And hopefully you too.

This work attempts to transform and re-mix a score made by Alka Nauman for a group into a solo for herself. The piece offers a satiric gaze on the ambiguous nature of plastic bags; on their elegance and ugliness, as well as their daunting ability to adopt different life forms. It fuses artificiality and exaggerated devotion toward plastic, to reveal the absurdity of our attitude toward the environment.

///A bit about us///
In a time not so far in the distant past (2017 we believe) there was a little community night we started that became a bit of a thing and place for the lovely souls of HW community and beyond to gather.
This gathering became an arts charity dedicated to raising funds for causes we believe in (big and small) and since we started we’ve raided towards £20k.

///Pay-What-You-Can///
Each week our team of volunteers will be dishing out some delicious affordable food from some amazing chefs.
Come share a drink and fill your belly whilst listening to some of London’s finest DJs, musicians and performers.

///Free entry///
…and all donations for the food go towards local organisations and charities.
When we think of charity we think of how to support the systems that support us each day – people who feed those vulnerable, look out for those on a mental health spectrum and protect us from multinational organisations that would have our planet resources dried up.

///Join us///
Every Tuesday, make an easy decision – put down that pan and rock up meet us and our community and be part of a diverse movement.
Hey, volunteer with us even! (just ask one of us)

Join us for an event for the community, by the community

PERFORMANCE SONORE « MECHANICAL TECHNO » + ATELIER GRAVEUR CACAOPHONIQUE
DIMANCHE 1ER MARS DE 16H30 À 18H DANS LE CADRE DU BAL PIRATE #45 À LA MAISON BLEUE, RENNES

GRAHAM DUNNING | Mechanical techno | Performance sonore à 17h30
Après un passage au Bon Accueil en 2017, Graham Dunning est de retour à Rennes pour sa performance jubilatoire et ingénieuse à la frontière du DJ set et du turnatbulism. La performance « Mechanical Techno » de Graham Dunning est une véritable opération à cœur ouvert de la musique électronique où la tachycardie peut à tout moment se transformer en arrêt cardiaque définitif.
Durant sa performance, l’artiste construit son set techno en empilant une série de vinyles customisés rendant ainsi visible toutes les pistes qui composent un morceau. La précarité de cet « assembricolage » vient ajouter un certain suspense à la performance.

TAPETRONIC | Graveur Cacaophonique | 16h30 à 17h30
L’artiste sonore et cuisinier aventurier Alexis Malbert vous invite à un atelier de création de disques phonographiques en chocolat ! Une machine unique conçue par l’artiste vous dévoile les incroyables secrets des origines du vinyle et de l’enregistrement sonore. Le cacao devient ici matière audio. Une expérience ludique pour éveiller les sens, à écouter et déguster… Chacun enregistre sa propre voix dans un disque en chocolat et se régale les papilles, le tout dans la bonne odeur et la bonne humeur !

Cet atelier s’inscrit dans le cadre d’une résidence de création avec Alexis Malbert dans la ludothèque de la MJC Brequigny et à la Maison Bleue de février à juin 2020. Ce projet reçoit le soutien le la DRAC Bretagne et de la Ville de Rennes.
