𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦 kicks off its inaugural series on the 6th of March at the Leytonstone Ballroom with an evening of contemporary dance and brave, adventurous electronic music. Featuring patten (DJ), Graham Dunning with Mechanical Techno Live Set, Moonbow & More.
Be brave, come along and expect nothing but boundary-breaking sounds and movement.
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 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.
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.
