Bristol Encounters: Sculpture Performing Unstable Modular Collage
Fri 18 November 2011 // 20:00
(Friday 18th Nov / doors 9pm DJS before and after Sculpture. Sculpture on 10pm / £6 advance (normal Cube outlets) £8 on door)
Party. Hopefully all the Animators in town will want to let their hair down over these guys.
Sculpture is an audiovisual performance duo from London – electronic music producer, Dan Hayhurst, and animator, Reuben Sutherland.
Sutherland ‘DJs’ with home-made zoetropic discs, intricate concentric rings of illustrated frames, projecting fragments of looping images at 33, 45 and 78 rpm – pre-Edisonian imaging technology combined with a digital video camera, deftly manipulated; the heart and spirit of animation laid bare like you've never seen.
Hayhurst deploys prepared audio material (found tapes, lo-fi electronics, computer programming, and analogue noise) across 1⁄4" tape loops, hardware sampler, cassette walkman and CDJ deck.
The process is important. a kind of unstable modular collage. style. rhythm. spontaneity. input, output, images fly in and out faster than you can hear them.
The music: A strange amalgam of found sounds (corresponding perfectly with the found imagery), Plunderphonics, ancient electronic music recalling the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, twisted rhythms (imagine Felix Kubin playing Dubstep), all mixed hands-on on the spot.
The Cube are very pleased to get these guys to Bristol after seeing them at various festivals. The combination of these two artists live is very special and this should be an amazing night.
PLUS surprise DJs and animations in the Bar.
