I think this should interest a few people on here (if yer in London anyway!)..
Highpoint Lowlife presents
TOWARDS THE SINGULARITY
Sunday August 31st 2008
£5 entry / doors 7pm
live performances from:
THE VILLAGE ORCHESTRA (Highpoint Lowlife, Stuff Records)
Ruaridh Law, one third of Glasgow's Marcia Blaine School For Girls, here performs a very special psychogeography themed performance based around the London neighbourhood of Dalston, aided by fellow Marcian Bryan/Beeker, doing visuals. The two have collaborated on a new Max/MSP/Jitter patch for the performance, and we can expect alchemical sound manipulations from digital detritus, moving from obsessively detailed texture and ambience to compulsive rhythms and broken structures.
MANDELBROT SET (Highpoint Lowlife)
epic guitar and violin duo, moving from slow-motion tranquillity, swelling into a barely restrained chaotic noise opus.
ERSTLAUB (Highpoint Lowlife)
Debut London show for scotland’s master of dark miserabilism. Working extensively with micromodular synthesis, creating immersive brooding drones and dense atmospheric soundscapes.
instrumental three piece from London, utilizing various combinations of two guitars, two basses, two loop pedals, a drum kit and anything else at hand to make noise.
