Agency Collaboration: Sculpture, Talvihorros and Duke of Zuke

Thursday 15 December / 6.45pm, First performance 7.15pm / Free

 

Music and animation duo, Sculpture, explore an idiosyncratic aesthetic encompassing pop, appropriative collage, cut & spliced techno, noise, early electronics, the avant-garde and Looney Tunes, mechanical and digital animation techniques, tape edits and computer programming.

 

Live, Reuben Sutherland ‘DJs’ with zoetropic picture discs, printed with intricate concentric circles of illustrated frames which come to life when filmed with a video camera, projecting looping fragments of surreal, luridly coloured imagery into eyeballs and brains at 25 frames per second  – Victorian mechanical imaging technology combined with digital video. Dan Hayhurst feeds tape loops, lo-fi analogue electronics, and digital sequences to a modular assembly (pile of junk, technical term) comprising a battered reel to reel tape recorder, CD player, walkman, hardware sampler and FX units. The resulting kaleidoscopic sensory overload is raw, exciting, the process visible to the audience, experimental yet filled with a deranged sense of joy.

 

Talvihorros is the guitar driven moniker of British composer Ben Chatwin. Exploring numerous techniques to coax a myriad of sounds from both electric and acoustic guitars.  He creates dense and dark sound collages augmented with organ, harmonium, mandolin, bells, synthesizer and waves of electronic static.  Talvihorros performs live with just an electric guitar and an array of effects pedals, he has previously shared the stage with the likes of Tim Hecker, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Stephan Mathieu and Ian Hawgood. 

 

The Duke of Zuke is a "special haircut" which comes from Bletchley, England. Using drones, guitar, loops, keyboards, tapes, samples, and other niceties, the Zuke creates an intriguing world of noise. Using his guitar and a bunch of nifty tricks to perform dense, layered, lush, cinematic soundscapes that are as spooky and eerie as they are pretty.
