Sounds from the Brighton Underground
Cafe Oto, London
Saturday 20 August 2011
Tickets: £6 advance / £7 on the door
A one night showcase of some of the main artists involved in Brighton's closely knit post-Noise weirdo-improv scene.
Robin Dickinson (who also performs solo electronics as Slow Listener) and Melanie Potter perform no-fi a'cappella vocal improv rituals.
Bad Orb is the solo project of Sarah Albury (Polly Shang Kuan Band, Jettatura) whose audio-visual work lies in the blurry area between fact and fiction.
Bad Orb on Facebook
Solo joint of Ian Murphy (Gryn Brvs), uses a single sound source and dissolves it into the finest hiss and crackle.
Dylan Nyoukis and Karen Constance create thick, psychedelic audio-mulch with tapes, throats and objects.
"Blood Stereo... explores hand-cranked 20th century technology in combination with epiglottal gymnastics and free music modes inherited as much from punk rock's mutilated aesthetic as utopian art styles." David Keenan
