18 AUGUST 2018 | TICKETS
Standing between neo-impressionism and electronica, Isnaj Dui (aka Katie English) conveys a minimal yet capturing sound using flutes, home-made dulcimers and electronics. As a classically trained flautist, English has also studied electroacoustic music, alternative tunings and Balinese gamelan and has collaborated with numerous artists from electronica acts to folk bands. Her material has appeared on a range of labels including Hibernate, Facture and Home Normal.
Merkaba Macabre is a multimedia project by Steven McInerney, an Australian born artist based in London. His practice ranges from audiovisual and musical performance, installation and experimental film & video works.
CLIVE BELL & DAVID ROSS
Clive Bell’s special interest lies with the shakuhachi (Japanese flute), khene (Thai mouth organ) and other East Asian wind instruments. He has travelled extensively in Japan (where he studied shakuhachi with the master Kohachiro Miyata), Thailand, Laos and Bali, researching music and meeting local practitioners. David Ross is a maker of bizarre rhythmic electronics and is reportedly the only musician to have composed an album entirely using an analogue synthesizer built into a kettle. Alongside these devises, he also plays more conventional instruments such as Jew’s harp, kalimba and kantele. As a duo they tenderly explore the points of harmony and contrast between their tools, resulting in beautifully strange improvised pieces of mystic reverence.
DANIEL W J MACKENZIE (DJ)
Under his real name and the alias Ekca Liena, Mackenzie is known for his emotionally and psychologically affecting music. This, his installation work and rare performances attempt to convey a sense of place, memory and expressive intensity on multitudinous levels. This approach is also incorporated into his activities as a curator and when tasked with the role of a DJ.
Phill Niblock + Tim Shaw
Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts – Falmer
8 SEPTEMBER 2018 | TICKETS >>
As part of the expanded season around Fort Process festival, Lost Property present a rare live and extended audiovisual performance from Phill Niblock.
Niblock’s pioneering work in abstract music and media has inspired generations of artists worlds away from his home in the New York experimental scene. Poised somewhere between psychoacoustic sound studies and avant garde composition, his influence has carried through his early tape based work into the digital collages of more recent material.
Niblock’s distinct use of layered microtones creates otherworldly stretches of beguiling music, blending atmospheres found among
celebrated minimalist and ambient composers.
Tim Shaw is an artist investigating the interactive relationships between technology and space. These explorations manifest in
refined installations, performances and site specific interventions, occasionally in collaboration with other renowned practitioners.
LOST PROPERTY DJS
Members of Lost Property will be playing music in the bar around the live performances.
This event has been made possible through funding from Arts Council England and generous support from Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
TICKETS AVAILABLE VIA ACCA BOX OFFICE >>
