TEMPORAL DISTORTIONS: PHOTOSONICNEUROKINEASIS & PLACE
BOTBORG, STORM BUGS & CO. @ THE FOUNDRY
Saturday 1 September5-11pm
The Foundry 84-86 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, London.Transport: Old Street tube/rail, many buses.
Botborg (Brisbane, Australia)
Botborg is an Australian experimental audio/visual duo presenting improvised performances of audio visual synaesthesia using their own custom setup of 'feedback electronics' (affectionately named: the photosonicneurokineasthograph).
You 'see' sounds, and 'hear' colours - but all these signals are actually the *same* signal, completely derived from device feedback. Botborg performances fuse sound and light into intensely visceral experiences which do not fit into the established categories of cinema or music. TOTALLY LIVE MULTI-SENSORY BRUTALITY.
Neither There Nor Here
Storm Bugs (Steven Ball & Philip Sanderson)
Live for the first time in 25 years, Storm Bugs present an all-new show of audio-visual navigational circuit bending and dis-orienteering. All around the roundabout, up and down Shoreditch High Street, in and out the Foundry, where are you going and how did you get there? Eschewing expectations, not to mention glitchy abstraction or the hedonistic thrill of the feedback rush, Storm Bugs turn their attention to the here and the now-ness, the there and the then-ness, collapsing distance, time, direction and location into a question, a riddle, a conundrum.
BBBlood (London)"Tinnitus-inducing Insanity, like being vomited on by some angry digital god. The only way to appease him is to drill holes in your brain, record it, and play the sounds to a roomful of very small children." I guess that would work, or you could use this: "BBBlood is tobacco-tin red noise from the strike-a-light guvnor of east london."
Twocsinak (Bristol) "Twocsinak is exceptionally gifted and I think gets pretty much totally ignored. He's a British guy who sings and writes songs and edits audio in a very intensive manner. He made a cd on the label Wrong Music that should be getting everybody in a lather but I don't think anybody has noticed. Check him out!" - Drew Daniel, Matmos
Edge Effect (Swindon) Andy Preston (aka Edge Effect) attempts to blend high-art sensibilities with Punk Rock's do-it-yourself ethic. Andy is a "synthesiser hacker", allowing sounds to grow organically using a mixture of improvisation and prepared structures to create evolving, dark-ambient textures that he uses to try to evoke eldritch images of inner worlds of dreams and hallucinations.
