Tape Piece for a Large Room

Tape Piece For A Large Room

 For four performers holding portable tape recorders (with inbuilt speakers).

Tapes (containing recordings of sine tones at different frequencies, etc.) can be supplied upon request.
Each performer begins in a different corner of the room.

 At a given signal, all four performers press play on their tape deck and begin walking towards the centre of the room.

 Upon encountering any obstacle – a chair, a person, etc. – turn around and plot a new course at a roughly forty-five degree angle from previous trajectory, then carry on walking.

 When the tapes run silent, stop moving.

Inspired by Martinu – Tonight in Camden, feat. Bobby Barry vs. Graham Dunning

I'll be playing at this event tonight in Camden, in a special one-off duo with Graham Dunning. The Czech Institute even went and made a little video of the two of us trying to marshal out little knowledge of Bohuslav Martinu’s life and works into actual sentences.

Zero Wave Club #5

Come join us in the very bosom of Camden, for another instalment of our monthly club series at the Fiddler's Elbow - Camden . 

This month's enthralling edition will feature the many and varies talents of…

Breathing Space – Five piece choral sound art group formed by composer/sculptor Stephen Shiell. Breathing Space have previously performed at the Burlington Arts Festival, Shambala Festival and upon a floating stage beneath a geodesic dome at Cody Dock, East London. For more information check

Aino Tytti – Influenced equally by Popul Vuh, Alva Noto and Arvo Pärt, electroacoustic composer Aino Tytti produces widescreen dark ambient soundscapes with processed field recordings and homemade synthesizers. Watching Aino Tytti support William Basinski for his Arcadia series last year, The Line Of Best Fit heard "swirling ethereal soundscapes that score the stuff of hallucinogenic dreams.".

Ripsaw Catfish – Collaborative duo of Cath Roberts (baritone sax) and Anton Hunter (guitar) mixing improvised and pre-composed elements with compelling, beguiling results. Their album ‘For the Benefit of the Tape’ was released last year on Raw Tonk Records.

Far Rainbow – Your hosts and Zero Wave club founders "brings to mind the free-spirited electronic kosmische musik that Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius may have created in their Cluster heyday if they had King Tubby rather than Conny Plank producing it." (We Need No Swords)

Interval music from the likes of Ben Zimmerman, Anne Dudley, Bill Nelson, Benge, and more.

8pm. £5. Facebook Event Page.
