  • Performance of my piece Stillness

    A specially-convened theremin quartet of myself, Charlie Draper, Alina Davies and Sam Enthoven will give the first-ever live performance of my piece Stillness (2017/2018) for two or more theremins/thereminists on the 26th of May at Steep. The location for the event is The Intimate Space at St Mary's Tower, a wonderful imtimate venue with amazing acoustics. Space is limited so this is likely to sell out.

    "STEEP – a new night for adventures in electronica, improv and sound art, hosted inside The Intimate Space, a 16th century church tower in Hornsey and all that survives of the original medieval structure. Tonight’s artists: Greta Pistaceci and Howlround. Physical space in the venue is strictly limited, making for what we hope will be a uniquely intense experience. Best book ahead to be sure of getting in. Tickets are available here. Howlround will perform an exclusive new tape loop piece created especially for The Intimate Space, while Greta Pistaceci will perform her piece ‘Stillness’ for two or more theremins/thereminists, accompanied by Charlie Draper, Alina Davies and Sam Enthoven."

  • Ingrid Plum's Taut

    I was invited to contribute a score to Ingrid Plum's project Taut. Taut will take the shape of a performance, a live recording release, and a book. Details about the performance (on the 11th of March) below:

    "Inspired by studying with Meredith Monk, Taut features scores by Graham Dunning, Helen Frosi, Kelly Jayne Jones, Tania Chen, Stephan Barrett, Iris Garrelfs, Jez Riley French, Nick Hudson, Kev Nickells, Bobby Barry, Lisa Busby, Lia Mazzari, Greta Pistaceci & Timothy Thornton performed by Ingrid Plum. Pushing contemporary music notation to new horizons the 14 scores commissioned by Plum encompass classical notation, photography, poetry, embroidery, painting and more. This is Plum's most challenging work yet as a singer and an improviser.

    This performance will be a rare chance to see all the compositions performed in their entirety and it will be recorded live, becoming the album itself. Taut will be released in June with a book of the scores featuring interviews with the artists involved.

    Ingrid Plum:

    'Gorgeously atmospheric vocal techniques woven around field recordings & electronics' - The Guardian

    Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics, to create layered soundscapes, spoken word and songs. Having performed and exhibited installation sound art and visual art since 2002, she creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation, neo-classical and contemporary Nordic folk music."

    "Supporting emerging artists moving image, With Teeth - LSFF's commissioning fund supported by Arts Council England - premieres three new experimental short AV works from Kim Noce, Zoe Aiano and Tash Tung, straddling ethnography, animation and structuralism, accompanied here by each artist’s influences and inspirations.

    PREMIERE: YOUR MOTHERS ARE MINE! dir. Kim Noce

    PREMIERE: IMAM PESNU dir. Zoe Aiano

    A wild and delicate documentary peeling back the layers of a life spent communicating with the dead.

    PREMIERE: UNKNOWN PLEASURE dir. Tash Tung

    A multi-screen fiction exploring the multiplicities of the image and female domesticity.

    + Light Reading dir. Lis Rhodes, 1978, an experimental work on 16mm exploring ”…the possibility of a new direction in film, not to be co-opted by an overriding definition.” – Peter Gidal"

    "From 1700 on the 29th July 2017 to 1700 on the 30th July 2017,

    and a retinue of some of the finest racketeers will be descending upon Brighton's Rose Hill tavern. The plan is to play continuously for 24 hours - all players committed to being in the same space for a full day.

    While there's nothing approximating instructions per se, there are a couple of ground rules - no looping and no cycling of members. Due to neighbourly considerations, the performance will be acoustic between 2300-1100 hours.

    The venue will be open to all for the duration of the performance but note that access will be restricted after hours - anyone wanting to watch in the wee small hours will have to text a number so one of our highly-trained, crack security guards can let them in. This information will be here and on website closer to the time.

    Hákarl has done a few of these long performances in the past - a 36 hour performance with bangthebore & affiliates in 2011 (documented here: http://www.bangthebore.org/archives/1212 and here: https://hakarl36.wordpress.com/), and a few 12 hour 'long half days' - one of which is documented here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIppSFP7h8Q&feature=youtu.be

    Performers, devised by Hákarl and Lisa Jayne:

    Lisa Jayne of Map 71: poet, musician, part local legend.

    Sally Shakti Willow: writer, poet, performer.

    Ecka Mordecai: Manchester-based cellist, sound-artist.

    Diana Policarpo: sound-artist, percussionist, and visual artist.

    Dolly Dollycore: musician, magician, and DJ.

    Greta Pistaceci: musician, sound-artist.

    Count Adriano Fettucini, a man of many theatrical talents...

    Jules Arthur: violist, pianist, co-founder of Betabet (and, conveniently enough, co-proprieter of the venue).

    Joshua Legallienne: acoustic guitarist, sound artist

    Megan Clifton of Bloom: multi-instrumentalist, teacher, and composer.

    Hákarl.
