TAMU NKIWANE
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. ”

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!

Algo:ritmi 24-7 Floors Opening – Graham Dunning Live Performance

27 Apr at 20:30  UTC+02

Graham Neil Dunning is welcoming you at 20.30 to celebrate the opening of the new space 24/7 Floors in the UXR.Zone.
Soon after the opening of The Dome – world’s first native virtual reality art space & cultural hub – the project keeps on developing presenting 24/7 Floors. Fully conceived and designed in virtual reality, it aims to be the space that collects all the live performances presented by Algoritmi.

After the events that took place in #VR #metaverse inside UXR.ZONE during last weeks, we made a further step towards the conceptualization of a new way of conceiving and experiencing (digital) art, live coding, electronic music.

Choose your standard avatar – or get your customized one – and enter the space from any device, with or without VR headset, without downloading any app.

Opening performance by Graham Neil Dunning at 8.30 pm CET
Graham Dunning explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects.
This live set will be an improvised live code performance: fragments of techno, 2-step and rave.

SUZANNE WALSH

Suzanne Walsh is an artist, writer and musician originally from Wexford, currently based in Dublin.

Her work is cross-disciplinary, with crossovers between the literary, music, and art world. Writing forms one strand part of the practice, both in the form of essays, poetry, and fiction, but also interventions and spoken-word performances in a gallery/lecture-hall context. She has a background in acting and theatre which she utilises within performances. Her writing is published in literary and art journals such as gorse journal, Winter Papers, Circa art magazine, The Tangerine, Visual Artist News Sheet amongst others.

Music/sound forms the other strand of her practice, from singing and instrumentation to improvisation and experimentation with performances and recording.

Recent work also involves photography and video along with text and audio elements.

Recent research interests are performativity, language, the outer limits of what is the ‘self’ but also what is ‘real’, human/animal divide, notions of poetic/fictional truth, rewilding.

AMY CUTLER & GRAHAM DUNNING

Amy Cutler is an artist, cultural geographer, curator, writer, and film-maker who works with ideas of geography and nonhuman others. In her career in the GeoHumanities she has completed a PhD, a post-doc, and an ECR fellowship, and during this time she has exhibited her work or run live events with organisations including the BBC, Somerset House, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Sheffield Institute of Arts, the Wellcome Trust, the Horniman Museum, International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, Late Junction, Tate Modern, the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, the Horse Hospital, the Natural History Museum, and Kew Museum of Economic Botany. Her geography training impacts her work as an artist, performer, and curator, and she works frequently on the production of immersive and live cinema and exhibition events provoking and changing the public conversation around ideas of space, geography, and nature-cultures. She was most recently lecturing in animal studies in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths, University of London, but she also teaches more publicly, applying her cross-disciplinary training to developing unusual masterclasses and fieldtrips for museums, festivals, and galleries.

https://amycutler.net/about

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.

Much of the work evolves through experimentation with different processes: considering the methods by which sounds become music; process as a continuum encompassing both improvisational and procedural methods; and testing analogous processes across different media.

Graham has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Europe and Canada, and exhibited in the UK, Europe, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives various independent workshops. He has released through Entr’acte, Seagrave, Tombed Visions and more.

MAXIMILIAN LE CAIN

Close Watch Television

Have you ever wondered why Maximilian Le Cain is not in charge of a major TV network? Probably not. But if you watch this garbled ephemeral hodgepodge remix audiovisual splurge, you’ll see exactly what would happen if he was put in control of telly content – and understand why such a catastrophe must be averted at all costs. CWTV stars Le Cain as Moon Tiger and Richard the Goat as JG Ballard.

Le Cain is an internationally recognised experimental film artist whose practice explores a personal relationship with cinema as a site of haunting He is associated with the Dublin-based film production/distribution organisation Experimental Film Society (EFS) and frequently works in partnership with Vicky Langan. Their feature film Inside (2017) was recently acquired for The Arts Council Collection. His recent feature Whale Skull (2019), made to mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of EFS, was exclusively premiered on the EFS Video on Demand platform where it can now be viewed.

NATALIA BEYLIS

Natalia Beylis’s work revolves somewhere between sonic story-teller, composer and multi-instrumental musician. In her recordings and performances, she layers seemingly incongruous sounds atop of each other to spawn strange juxtapositions and garbled parallels. The Quietus call her work “an exceptional tape of instrumental incantations and explorations”. Her releases with her band Woven Skull have garnered similar praise and, in addition to a busy touring schedule with them and a solo performer she also runs a record label Sofia Records and is a regular contributor to Dublin Digital Radio.

OLI RYAN

Oli Ryan is a composer and multidisciplinary artist known for his atmospheric and visceral work with Tongue Bundle (Unbend Leg Out), Open Night Cinema, Gorrister, and the Comedian, incorporating dissonance since 2001. He recently composed the cinematic soundtrack for Autumnal Sleep by Michael Higgins. Legendary in the Irish underground, a rare performance from Oli is one not to be missed and will envelop your ears and probably leave you unable to remember your own name.

Justice Yeldham (AUS)
Marlo Eggplant (USA)
Graham Dunning (UK)
Fish Slappa (AUS)

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.
