This edition features sets from:
John Macedo
An artist and performer from London. His work explores connections, relationships and interdependence through revealing the hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and interactive ways.
He performs solo and has collaborated in an improvisational and recording context with a wide variety of musicians and artists. He has had recorded works released by The Tapeworm, Hideous Replica, Sound Holes, and Beartown Records as well as releasing small run and object editions on his own label, The Black Plume Editions. He has performed and presented work in the UK, Europe and US and has led workshops and produced collaborative, educational and community-based projects for Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery, Artsadmin and New Contemporaries.
Leon Michener
London-born pianist and composer. His unique approach to music encompasses art, video and electronics and seeks to push beyond the boundaries of what is technically and sonically possible on the traditional piano. His Klavikon project reimagines electronic music without the use of conventional processes – no loops, no prerecorded music, and no samples. Instead, all sounds, kicks, snares, bass and pads are created by preparing an amplified piano, an “acoustic workstation”, sequenced only by fingers, allowing human vagaries to triumph over quantised accuracy. Unique inventions and found objects – a custom-made pickup, a robot toy dog, vibrators, and lots of Blu-tak, augment the 88 keys delivering cascading batteries of percussion, sub-basses and dark abstract soundscapes. This amalgam of virtuosic piano technique and real-time electronic processing is at once connected with dance genres and 20th-century classical music.
Georgina Brett
Georgina Brett’s music is created using her voice and effects pedals, creating instant choirs of sound, often in an hypnotic style. The point of this music is not only to captivate with extraordinary timing and melodic style but also to help the listener to relax, in our ever-increasingly distracted world. Her double album “Nonsense A and Nonsense B” is of purely vocal works with no ‘deliberate’ words or lyrics. The albums show the voice as an instrument, and as a vehicle for emotional expression. “So much music is made in order to make us feel something so as to manipulate us to buy or to follow… this album lets your thoughts be whatever they want to be.” The albums also play with the idea that we like to interpret, constantly listening for meaning instead of just listening.
I am a quiet noisemaker, soundsculptor, free form improviser, exploring noise and silence, synthetic and natural sounds, and everything in between, using electronic and analogue instruments, objects, found sounds and human voice. my name’s Levente Dudas, and I am the creative power behind the musical project called N/O/E/W/A.
Please be considerate of others who may be more concerned than you regarding social distancing etc. Some participants are at increased risk from Covid, so face masks are encouraged and if you are unwell on the day, rather than struggling to attend please contact the organisers for a replacement ticket for a future date.
