Eleanor Cully is an artist from Norwich (UK), currently based in Huddersfield. Her recent work as a composer has explored the interface between surface and skin in works written for
instrumentalists. Eleanor also performs her work, her latest flute work Siren Songs was written and performed with artist Charlotte Cullen at Charlotte’s exhibition Please, Be Gentle. Eleanor co-founded Bacon Jam Collective, an independent production collective for concerts in Huddersfield, and co-directs U N N A W A Y, an artist led organisation establishing a platform for reflexive artistic dialogue in Huddersfield.

Jorge Boehringer’s solo project Core of the Coalman (US/CZ), is an open sketchbook, and a
collection of compositions in a state of evolution. This performance is a moment of frozen time, thawed live like a Tyrolean mummy, with the aim of hearing oneself hearing. http://www.jorgeboehringer.tumblr.com/


Phill Niblock is a New York-based minimalist composer and multi-media musician and director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation born in the flames of 1968’s barricade-hopping. He has been a maverick presence on the fringes of the avant garde ever since. In the history books Niblock is the forgotten Minimalist. That’s as maybe: no one ever said the history books were infallible anyway.

Norman Records, your local hide-and-seek record store, presents an evening of spectacular droning sound from:

IAN WILLIAM CRAIG

One of Norman’s favourite artists, Ian William Craig is an operatically trained vocalist from Vancouver who uses tape loops the way a school-kid might a litmus test: reaching for success but infatuated with failure, his works break in and out of cycles, mutating to create immersive drone medleys as noisy as Belong’s but as humane as Grouper’s. He’s released two records with Sean McCan’s Recital label — the fragmented but songwritten A Turn of Breath and Cradle For The Wanting, which consisted of nothing but vocals fed through reel to reels — and he’s about to release another for FatCat’s classical imprint 130701. You shan’t want to miss this.
http://www.ianwilliamcraig.com/

MARLO EGGPLANT

Baltimore’s sound performance artist Marlo De Lara produces textural compositions under the Marlo Eggplant moniker. These develop from microscopic tone landscapes into dense and expansive states of noise and drone. Her works aim to blur the definitions of (un)intentional sound and music. The many noises and tones of De Lara’s live performances are sourced from autoharps, contact mics, vocals and loops, amongst other tools. Her pieces have minimalist origin stories that can be breached through a knowing and often slow-burning approach to improvisation. She curates the excellent Ladyz In Noyz series while playing a myriad of ever-changing shows through Yorkshire and beyond. A Marlo Eggplant set is sure to both establish sounds and let them establish themselves.

CORE OF THE COALMAN

A sound man of both academic and recreational disciplines, he’s done all things drone upon his viola while also tinkering through harmonica and electronics. His noise is a treat and his large discography of cavernous sound makes for a good musical vitae.
https://coreofthecoalman.bandcamp.com/

 

Then, next Thursday in Dublin, I will play a show being organized by the We Are Worst group, so it looks to be a good time.  They said I will “operate in a space which pulls together in-the-red scumbag minimalism, intuitive performance art and american folk traditions through a heremetic, inward-looking psychedelia ”  and so I will try.  Not sure what else is on the bill but it should be a surprise.  Scheduled for 8pm start, at edge hunters… Anseo Camden Street 18 camden street lower, Dublin…free entry.

Following there there is the I think I have the one or maybe the two performances that I was going to do on the festival formerly known as the Monk and The Nun All-Day BBQ and Sleepover Camp.  This festival had an amazing line-up, but it has unfortunately been cancelled.  The original flyer (designed by artist Jake Blanchard) is below BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME, but PLEASE IGNORE ANY DETAILS as the festival unfortunately no longer exists.

 

 

Yet some part of this DOES exist.

There will be a “Monk and the Nun Mini-Fest” happening in another venue August 13th and 14th (I believe the organizers’ home…located in Drumnadubber Woods in the midst of Ireland…very close to the secret rehearsal cave and epic studio of the mysterious psych-rock revelation known as the Woven Skull)

So far confirmed are
PADDY STEER
GRAHAM DUNNING
ROSLYN STEER
JORGE BOEHRINGER & AILBHE NIC OIREACHTAIGH
BIRD PEOPLE
PANDELINDIO
WILLIE STEWART & FERGUS CULLEN
MCEVOY & CLUTTERBUCK DUO
CATHAL ROCHE
QUEEF!

Join us at Fuse Art Space in Bradford

Tuesday June 28

Doors 8/Show 8:30

RECOMMENDED ENTRY DONATION: £4

Presenting the third in a series of weekday evening concerts featuring new works by new artists currently enraptured or entrapped by Huddersfield:

SOLOMIYA MOROZ

Solomiya Moroz performs a set of three works for flute and live electronics with my accelerometer sensor controlled interface. All pieces use the physical capabilities of the performer to control live electronic processing via movement control of the accelerometer interface sometimes implying theatricality in the dramatic content of the works.

Solomiya Moroz is a Canadian artist based in the UK, pursuing a PhD in music composition at the University of Huddersfield. Moroz is interested in the hybrid forms of sound in mixed and acoustic music and its ways of production. Her work tends to progress towards the expansion of the project specific mediums and the role of the musician within them. She has participated in Takt Berlin Artists residency, Omi International Musicians residency in New York, and Banff Centre Creative residency. In addition she has performed and presented her music in Canada, US, and Europe. Her projects have been supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Fonds Québécois de la Recherche sur la Société et Culture.

CAPILLARIES

Capillaries is an audiovisual work by artist Tadej Droljc – inspired by creative and destructive forces of suppressed emotions. Its form reflects branched trajectories of everyday life that are shaped by such forces. In the piece the suppressed emotion is represented by the algorithm than can never be heard or seen. What we hear and see are the consequences of its interactions with audiovisual material inside a virtual physical environment. Therefore the piece is all about invisible forces and malleable objects inside a constrained virtual environment. Interactions between these elements produce audiovisual rhythms and phrases. Audiovisual material is based on two-way real-time interactions between musical and visual parameters.

Tadej Droljc is an an interdisciplinary artist and technician who works in the field of electronic music, audiovisual composition, sound for picture and intermedia art. His work consists of composing, sound design, sound visualization, image sonification, programming musical and audiovisual instruments and effects, designing and programming system for interactive installations etc. At the moment he is focusing on non-hierarchical audiovisual composition based on real-time generated audiovisual objects where the lines between mentioned segments of production are completely blurred. His audiovisual research is being funded by Slovenian Ministry of Culture and University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) where he was awarded Dennis Smalley scholarship for electronic music and where he’s currently pursuing a doctorate.
http://www.tadej-droljc.org/

SIREN SONGS (CHARLOTTE CULLEN AND ELEANOR CULLY)

Siren Songs is a performance project by artist Charlotte Cullen and musician Eleanor Cully. The piece began as several short flute pieces, commissioned by Cullen as a performance during their artist’s talk at their recent solo exhibition Please Be Gentle. The resulting collaboration involves 7 Siren Songs performed on flute by Cully while Cullen reads excerpts of their own texts, quotes from sources including Lauren Berlant, Sylvia Plath and Sara Ahmed, and selected sections from the original Hans Christian Anderson The Little Mermaid. Intimate and haunting the piece questions labour, physical pain to uphold feminine ideals and the cruel attachment to the good life explored through ideas relating to purgatory and the human soul. It is a vulnerable performance which is delicate, emotional and sincere.

Together with artist Kashika Ashley Cooper, Cullen and Cully co-direct UNNA WAY, an artist-led organisation for establishing a platform for reflexive artistic dialogue in Huddersfield. They are both studio holders with Northern Young Artists.

8:30pm

448 Wilmslow Road, M20 3 Manchester, United Kingdom

pseudo-necessary footknob event information page link

The Noise Upstairs has been an institution dedicated to the practice of improvised music since its founding in 2007.  Based in Northwest England, it runs regular monthly events in Manchester, has hosted a number of creative workshops, invited a variety of local and international improv musicians to perform in both cities, and has even recently started supporting musicians as a small artist-centric label. Anton Hunter and Rodrigo Constanzo aim to make The Noise Upstairs a staple in the improvisation scene by continuing to re-imagine what The Noise Upstairs can be, and how it can serve musicians and artists both locally, and abroad.

SISTER/BODY(cz)
Sister Body Pražské elektronické duo Sister Body ve svém zvuku mixuje prvky minimalistického synthwave a temného psych-dubu. Jedna z charakteristik jejich somnambulní, a přesto nervózní hudbu popisuje slovy: “Hutné mlhy utopených, težce zdelayovaných mužských a ženských hlasů pomalu prostupují skrz kostru rytmické architektury, která připomene disko krále Giorgia Morodera s neustále pronikajícími basovými riffy na povrchu.” Koncertují sporadicky, věnují se spíše izolované domácí práci na nahrávkách nebo dalším spřízněným projektům (Lightning Glove, Ruinu). Vycházejí z pražského okruhu KLaNGundKRaCH, jejich poslední nahrávky vyšly na limitovaných kazetách na baltimorském labelu Spleencoffin (Star/Red, 2013) a u britských Tesla Tapes (Lucifer Efekt, 2014).

MARGARETOVA CITRONY (uk,us,fr,cz)
Basking in their rise to extreme stardom, the quartet encountered glamorous difficulties known to other super groups like the Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. After a particularly disastrous evening, Citrony had a long collective look in the mirror and decided to clean their teeth. Using the recently developed chrionic deep freezing techniques, they took on a long refractory period, for meditation on the future. Resolving in 1989 to give something back to the earth, they respawned in 1990 to undertake a seven year dental apprenticeship which resulted in Teeth Types, an Orthodontical Stampede. Although a big hit in the square dance scenes of Nebraska, Bratislava, and Olomouc, this sophomore effort was largely overlooked, and critics, including the tooth fairy herself, regarded it as less focused, in need of glasses, and yet left no coins beneath the pillow.

Furthermore, tensions within the band rose. The yellow toothed road didn’t lead to Oz. Disagreements over song titles led to a long period in which band members individually stared off into space, not speaking to one another. Finally, after another ten years, someone made a coffee, and the group organized a trip to the beach. The newly released studio masterpiece, Vitame Vas Kentucky (We Welcome You To Kentucky) showcases the quartet’s return to their bluegrass roots with 10 new songs masterfully recorded and impeccably produced in their secret underground studios, the site of a former chemical factory.

Margaretova Citrony will be making rather impulsive and spontaneous concert appearances when they feel like it for the next 300 years. Since converting large parts of their material bodies to plasma and selling off pieces of their souls as real-estate in exchange for the ability to materialize and de-materialize throughout spacetime, they have been rehearsing more often, however actual collective materializations are rar,e as such phenomena are dependent on available universal material resources, clouds of dark matter, etc

A message from one band member was recently found written inside of an eggshell cracked for an omelette in Lousiana, and translated from its original sankrit writing. It read:

“We went to the beach with plans to leave Kentucky, now we aren’t sure if we are in Austrialia or Messier 31.”

*****************************************************************************************

The following day, I will be giving a talk at Prague College, where I used to teach, as part of their visiting artists series.  This is free and open to the public.

The exciting title of the talk is:

‘Practice Leading Research Leading Practice (And Other Infinities in My Recent Experimental Practice of Artistic Research)’

Using examples from my recent compositional work, I will highlight areas of intersection between research and practice.  Interactive relationships between aesthetic and research aims intersect in the experimental development of new approaches and technologies where unique applications result in unexpected experiences.  New experiences produce new questions, and the cycle continues….
Notions surrounding the role of the artist in academia and roles for academia in the life and work of an artist can be contextualized within our nature as curious human beings.  We are all students, and we are also all designers, seeking creative solutions for both philosophical and everyday problems.

IMAG4637

I have been working on my new piece (to be premiered in this concert) for quite a while.  It brings together several ideas from my music and my phd research.  In particular, some concrete approaches to the expansion and contraction of musical time form the structure of the music, which is simultaneously three solos and an ensemble piece.  This is the first time that I have tried some of these ways of making music with humans instead of calculators (computers).  No conductors.  No clocks. No standards.  The piece is called In Warmer Seasons, and here is the program note:

in warmer seasons

in warmer seasons proposes that individual trajectories between the parts of the ensemble can form an ecological whole.  Here, three musicians play parts which occupy distinct process-trajectories developing at their own individual rates.  Despite a shared eight-minute duration, there is no clock-time, meter, conductor, or other ensemble-wide time standard used in the piece.  Instead, each player follows their own variable time standard as delivered by a click track, and they play in response to the changing skin of the experienced moment.  Coincidental but nontrivial interactions result from a design logic applied on the scale of the individual parts.  This approach gives preference to the ongoing process of surprise and discovery through direct aural experience on the part of both performers and audience, over a desire for perfection of an abstract musical idea or structure.  Similar sentiment is celebrated by Lucretius in On the Nature of Things:

“Nothing in the body is made in order that we may use it.

What happens to exist is the cause of its use.”

FUSE Presents:

Tomoko Sauvage

Elias Merino

IN CONCERT

SATURDAY 19TH MARCH, 20:00 / £4.00

Fuse Art Space

Bradford

TOMOKO SAUVAGE

Tomoko Sauvage, a Japanese musician/sound artist based in Paris, works with waterbowls, porcelain bowls of different sizes, filled with water and amplified with hydrophones (under-water microphones). She plays with different forms of water – drops, waves and bubbles resonating in the bowls as well as audio feedback creating waving drones and natural overtones. Her work is about the delicate balance between controlled and uncontrolled, the random percussion of droplets, acoustic characteristics of the space and the fragile tonality created with the fluid materials constantly evaporating and moving. Sauvage has been performing, exhibiting and carrying out workshops in Europe, US, Canada and Japan, often solo but also in collaboration with musicians and choreographers. Her works have been released by and/OAR (US), aposiopèse (BE), dokidoki editions (FR). In 2011, a new set of porcelain bowls was created during her residency at La Pommerie (FR) in collaboration with Ceramic Research Center in Limoges (CRAFT).

ELÍAS MERINO

Opening act is ELÍAS MERINO (Madrid 1985), a Spanish sonic artist and composer based in the UK. Currently he develops his work in computer-generated sound artifacts after some years involved in acousmatic music. Merino is interested in different approaches related with sound composition and digital arts such the exploration of time, poetic and philosophical relationship between Subject-Object and the Otherness, the Sublime, or sound specific/plural objects in multifocal spaces. Elías presents his work in installations and sonic works, which are exhibited, released, performed and broadcasted internationally.

Currently he is a PhD researcher in Computer Music at University of Huddersfield.

and!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tor Press has released five beautiful new recordings from the likes of:

Aqua Dentata

Aqua Dentata is the solo project of Eddie Nutall, here he creates immersive minimal drones using synthesizers, violin and zither. The simplicity and consideration in Eddie’s work draws you in and cloaks you in delicately shifting tones. There’s a lot more to these tracks than is first apparaent, this is music that begs you to pay close attention and discover every subtle overtone. A thing of delicate beauty which belies its appearance of simplicity.

Ulrich Rios

Better known under the moniker Bird People, this is the first album from Ulrich under his own name. The album is completely acoustic and is predominantly banjo picking tunes that wouldn’t be far out of place at an old time jam in Appalachia, sandwiched between the banjo tunes are subtle drones on shruti, gong and singing bowl.
Here’s what Ulrich has to say about it- ‘These recordings were inspired by the two places where I have lived so far, my hometown of Waidhofen, which lies along the Ybbs river in the province of Lower Austria and Vienna’s Meidling District, specifically the Gaudenzdorf area along Vienna’s main road called the ‘Belt’. All tracks were recorded live with no overdubs and often with the windows open to allow the environmental sounds to seep in and become part of the music.’

Tor Invocation Band

Water

CDr

New project from Jake Blanchard created as a means to collaborate with a variety of musicians. Tor Invocation band has no fixed lineup and no fixed style.This album sounds something like improvised experimental psych & drone.

Musicians on this album- Jake Blanchard, Jorge Boeringer (Core of the Coalman), Natalia Beylis (Woven Skull), Willie Stewart (Woven Skull), Aonghus McEvoy (Woven Skull), Chris Hladowski (Family Elan) and Sophie Cooper.

Edition of 50 in hot foil embossed card sleeves.
I am playing on the one above, and also this one below…this is a trio that I am part of with two people named Niko.  We started to play together two summers ago in Turku, Finland, and here is the mountainous result:

Orange Hora

Mountainous Interior

Cassette

Orange Hora is a new project from Niko-Matti Ahti (Kiila), Jorge Boehringer (Core of the Coalman) and Niko Karlsson. Sputtering broken electroinc sounds, frantic percussive textures, plucked and bowed strings. At times this could be quite a disconcerting listen but there’s always a thread of something recognicable drawing you through the distorted eruptions and fractures. Any rasping, jarring sounds are counterbalanced by subtlety and nuance.

Prodryas

We are absolutely delighted to be announce a live performance of “Lepidoptera” by Monty Adkins and Terri Hron, with elusive Hali Santamas as an opener, in Fuse Art Space, Bradford, February 23rd at 8pm.  Entrance will be a mere 3 pounds.  Moths, come forth towards the light.

lep

Lepidoptera is a work for recorders and electronics made of five movements, each referring to families of butterflies and moths. The nature and character of the recorder is similar, with its varying tonal colours, and its transformations from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. The consort of recorders used belongs together. They have a broad sound with strong upper partials; there are intimate, almost inexplicable sonic and physical connections between the different instruments. This inspired similar connections and interactions between the recorder(s) and the electronics.

The five movements are families of relationships, with no two performances ever the same as they are reconfigured and retuned anew for each iteration. In Saturniid, the recorder rides the crest of an acous- matic wave, sometimes submerged within the mix and at other points rising momentarily above it. Ephemeroptera delicately counterpoints the solo recorder and its fixed environment. Zygoptera and Anisoptera have an algorithmic mobile that creates a stream of sound files that feed into the larger trib- utary of sound processing, shaped by multiple envelopes and parameter changes. Lepidoptera com- bines and morphs these different approaches.

The project was first initiated during Terri Hron’s residency in the summer of 2014 at the studios of the Centre for Research in New Music (CERENEM)
of the University of Huddersfield (England, UK). All sounds in the electroacoustic part are derived from recorders between the C-bass and the G-alto in a consort built by Adriana Breukink, based on instruments by Schnitzer from the turn of the16th century.
Monty Adkins
 (Leamington, UK, 1972)

Monty Adkins is a composer, performer, and professor of experimental electronic music at the University of Huddersfield (England, UK). He has created installations, concert and audio- visual works, and a number of col- laborations with performers, video artists and photographers. His works have been commis- sioned by INA-GRM, IRCAM, BBC Radio 3, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (HCMF), SpACE-Net, ZKM, and Sonic Arts Network (SAN), among others. For his œuvre he has been awarded over 15 international prizes including the Stockholm Electronic Arts Award (Sweden), Grand Prize at Musica Nova (Prague, Czech Republic), and five prizes at the Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition (France). Having read music at Pembroke College (Cambridge, England, UK) where he studied French mediae- val and Italian Renaissance music, Adkins then studied electronic music with Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham where he performed across Europe with the Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST), and Simon Waters at the University of East Anglia (Norwich, England, UK). Monty Adkins is also active as a writer and concert curator. He completed his first book in 2011 on the relationship between art and music (Shibusa — Extracting Beauty) and a second on the music of Roberto Gerhard in 2013 (Ashgate).

Monty-Adkins

Recorder player and composer Terri Hron mostly makes music in collaboration with others. Currently she directs NESTING, a performance integrating musical, visual and embodied practices and Portrait Collection, a band of unique performer-composers working with electronics. Her collaborators include Monty Adkins, Luciane Cardassi, Marie-Hélène Breault, Katelyn Clark, Camille Hesketh, and Cléo Palacio-Quintin. She studies ways to encourage and notate collaborative practices in the creation of electroacoustic music for specific performers as well as how multimedia influences musicians in performance. www.birdonawire.ca

Opening act is Hali Santamas, who creates a very personal music made of  noises and photography .  He will be performing his piece swell which projects both sounds and light into space to create an immersive environment of maximal and noisy audio visual continua.  Of this piece Hali says:

“Swell is an attempt to capture and evoke a specific place and time with all of its emotional complexities. Sound and video is abstracted and layered to create something which incorporates not just the recorded audiovisual time and space but the atmosphere and sense of place that I felt at the time.”

French New Tapes and Upcoming Two Concerts in and around the ‘shire

 

I will be performing a concert of new electronic music in Huddersfield on Friday January 29th.

This performance is free, and is being produced by Unnaway and the Bacon Jam Collective.

The concert takes place within the mirrored former dance studio that Unnaway has been using for monthly exhibitions over the last four months or so.  The current exhibition, “…and to dust all return” will be open during the concert.  The venue is located in the center of Huddersfield, very close to the train station, in the alley across from Oxfam books.  Note that there are two Oxfam charity shops in Huddersfield, this is the alley across from the one that specializes in books (its quite great in fact, come early and have a look around).

Also performing are a new trio of John Aulich and James Wood (a trio of two), and Richard Craig.  More information below:

Richard Craig
luminous – Kristian Ireland
The work luminous (2013-2014) is the outcome of two years of detailed communication and collaboration between Richard Craig and myself, from late 2011 onward. Alternating ingressive and egressive resonance (sound via inhalation/exhalation), and microtonal multiphonics with flexible voicings. In luminous, the natural aspects of these materials are allowed to sound and expand as wholly as possible. In sequence, they connect closely and form longer resonant threads. The amplification is an aural magnifying lens, focusing the human breathing process as a sound element.

Core of the Coalman
Jorge Boehringer’s solo project Core of the Coalman(US/CZ), is an open sketchbook, and a collection of compositions in a state of evolution. This performance is a moment of frozen time, thawed live like a Tyrolean mummy, with the aim of hearing oneself hearing.

I have a new tape just released after a long long long long long long long long wait:

cover only

 

Released by the Nancy, France based musique label of performance, noise, radio, and recording artiste Nurdin William Nurdin William

on his recording label RoHs

This tape, titled Natural Objects, approximately one hour long tape consists of electronic music created in Czech Republic some time ago.  As RoHs believes that it only makes sense to release “analog music” on analog formats like cassette, this recording follows an AAA approach, the only digital element in the entire production chain being the printer used to produce the cover and probably whatever machine produced the plastic for the tape.

 

Analog circuits, using analog processes, my body and that the body of Romano Krzych (who joined for the last track ‘Biofeedback’, microphones, movement, a viola, and maybe something else like harmonica were used to make the three pieces contained herein.

other influences abound:

 

 

tape on grey

then, you have a chance to come to Sheffield to beautiful Bank Street Arts center to see Sophie Cooper and I perform some version of the duo project we stumbled up last autumn…perhaps joined by a mysterious third party…

This all takes place on the first show of Peak Signal 2 Noise’s new concert season and also features a performance from Katz Mulk, a new project of Bens Knight(from Helhesten long ago and Human Heads more recently)and Morris (from wonderful Chora and Akce Phallus)…
