DRIFT ft. Kyoka, Grischa Lichtenberger, and YTAC - the third commission by Outlands, a new experimental music network - begins its national tour at MK Gallery on Wednesday 7 November at 8pm.  

Fusing heavy electronics, hypno-chaotic grooves and pristine frequency control within a unique, audio-visual environment, DRIFT sets forth an intoxicating, hyper-sensory experience. 

Part club, part installation, part immersive environment, Drift takes shape within a specially constructed space, where motion sensors and microphones monitor the room, the crowd and the performers. The observations are fed to a central ‘brain’, which responds by projecting fevered machine-dreams back onto people and walls - the audience and the performance influence the visuals; feedback ensues, chaos builds. Inside this generated environment, artists Kyoka and Grischa Lichtenberger from acclaimed German electronic music record label Raster will diffuse their visions of experimental dancefloors. 

Tour support comes from YTAC a key figure of the EIS HAUS collective.

Simon Wright, MK Gallery’s Curator of Public Programmes said “Over the past year, we have hosted two incredible events as part of the OUTLANDS experimental music touring network. Both brought innovative, internationally acclaimed artists to Milton Keynes for the first time and introduced new musical experiences and ideas to our audiences. DRIFT featuring Kyoka, Grischa Lichtenberger and YTAC, the final tour of the 2018 programme, is perhaps the most ambitious and technically challenging OUTLANDS production to date and we are delighted that we will be launching the tour at MK Gallery on the 7 November. Don’t miss out!

Tickets cost £10 or £8 in advance.
