Deconstruct Yourself – De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill

On Friday 1st December myself, Leslie Deere, Tom Richards and Joanne Armitage will perform live and present some installations, in a deconstructed rave at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea. Tickets available now from DLWP, preview video and full info below.



Friday 1 December
Tickets £6, £5

Graham Dunning and three other artists take over the building to present an evening of live music and visual performance.

6 – 10pm 
6:00pm Doors open for viewing artworks (galleries and ICA touring exhibition also open)
7:30pm to 10pm live performances

Performed in the round, the audience have the chance to get up-close and personal with the machines as they help us rave to mechanical techno.

The event will include three sculptural, sonic installations, placed around the public areas of the building and a live music performance, with projected visuals, in the DLWP auditorium foyer space which dismantles and reconstructs the process and foundations beneath basslines and rhythms. Everything used by these artists is hacked and torn. Machines are rewired to share control.

First two live coding gigs

I’ve recently started learning the live coding program TidalCycles, and have two gigs this month playing music with it.

Here’s a clip from an old practice with the program. My live set may or may not sound anything like this.

Webster/Dunning duo – new album and tour

Most of What Follows Is True is a new cassette from the improv project with myself and Colin Webster. On the studio recordings Colin played baritone saxophone and I played turntable, dubplates, spring reverbs and various objects. You can get the cassette from label Sound Holes here.  Also available with download version from my bandcamp page shortly.

I’ve also released an album of remixes of the tracks on Fractal Meat.  Tom Mudd, Shelly Knotts, Lucia H Chung, John Macedo, Steph Horak and Phil Julian used various methods including analogue and digital processing, Max MSP patches, modular synthesis and live coding to rework the material into new compositions. Most of What Follows is True, remixes is available on tape and download from the Fractal Meat bandcamp page now.

To support the album(s) we’re playing a few gigs around the UK.  Follow the facebook links for more info.
