A monthly showcase for sonically adventurous experimentation and electronics in West London in association with OPEN Ealing. Free entry with ticket, donations at event, BYOB.
Featuring three full-length sets from:
As a multi-disciplinary artist, Liz has always had an interest in ambient music and sound art as a form of expression. Her work, both visual and sonic, is a response to place and environment. Sensitive to how these energies make her feel, she is interested in the subliminal and sonic exploration of these experiences. By walking the streets, and experiencing different levels of sounds, she begins her process with field recordings, making immersive and mesmerising drone based compositions that explore layers of sound and texture. She very much likes working organically, following the thread of the sound to its ultimate destination, which she likes to think of as sonic alchemy.
A composer and sound artist based in London. His works move across experimental approaches and aesthetic investigations, focusing on the manipulation and mixture between field recordings, synthesis, and acoustic instruments. His body of work maintains a strong spirit of exploration and experimentation, creating unexpected electronic soundscapes. In 2018, Ivano graduated in Electroacoustic Composition at the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome, and, in 2019, he post-graduated in Electronic Music Composition at the UWL in London. His music has been released by Mahorka, Elan Vital, and Stochastic Resonance.
A Moscow born electronic musician, based in London. He was a founding member of Israeli experimental electronic duo Grundik and Slava. The duo played an important role in the flourishing of the Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem art and music underground in the late 90s-early 00s. He collaborated with many musicians, dancers, painters and filmmakers, and released records through Matchless, Another Timbre, Takuroku, Creative Sources, Cathnor, Earsay, Fact, Auris Media, Stateart, Dromos and Linear Obsessional. He also plays in bands Теплота, Staraya Derevnya and Llull Machines. Before concentrating on electronic music he wrote poetry and it deeply influenced his current practice. Since 2006 he’s been developing a customised setup, which he calls “feedback synthesizer” (a feedback/analog synthesis system).
There is no bar, so please bring your own refreshments. Tickets are free with donations taken at the event.
The venue has ventilation drawn from the air outside. 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 please wear a face mask.
