Artists: Sowari Modular / Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers / Rare Form / Laura Netz
Sowari Modular - Chaotic Improv Krell
For this performance Phil Durrant - aka Sowari Modular - will perform an improvisation using an extended ‘Krell Patch’. This is based on the 1959 movie Forbidden Planet, in a segment where they supposedly play the music of the ancient Krell race. When it emerges from the skronky murk, the Krell is a writhing, cavorting phantasm. In general terms, each note has a random pitch, envelope and duration. The patch links early sci-fi soundscapes with the noisy/chaotic world that we currently live in.
Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers - Sound Art Improv Cassette
The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers is the name of the music and sound project of sound artist Andy Rowe. He creates sounds drawing from a vast collection of found, bought, self made and personally commissioned instruments and noise making devices. Andy Rowe currently performs a solo set using a selection of up to fifteen Walkmans and mini and micro-cassette players and dictaphones.
Rare Form - Dark ambient Drone Neoclassical
Rare Form employs synths, experimental guitars, tape loops, and samples to create atmospheric neoclassical drones, build ups, and crescendos.
Medial Ages by Laura Netz - DIY electronics strobe lights
The artist uses optoelectronic oscillators which produce a repetitively modulated wave. The light sources control the circuits modulating the signal. In a sound/light integration, the modulation of tone activates an interactive system based on DIY circuitry. It is a self-generated sonic machine creating a syncopated, high-pitched, noisy beep.
Sonic Electronics proposes an inclusive event to the LGBT community, female artists, no discrimination on gender, races, MH, disability.
