Core of the Coalman (Jorge Boehringer – UK)
Jorge Boehringer is an composer, artist, and researcher exploring layered processes from the microscape to the landscape, and how they interact with perceptual experience. Utilizing a protean platform for experimentation and presentation, Boehringer creates performances, recordings, music, installations, texts, three-dimensional objects, and visual phenomena. Boehringer’s work offers an experience of reality presented as a textural field. “Multiple systems of events, appearing and disappearing, and evolving at their own rates…

the difficult crossing, Rene Magritte
all I can tell you is that all is not as it seems.
‘To let that which shows itself be heard in the very way it shows itself from itself,” but as both first and second order listening: one hears, and one hears oneself hearing. This piece accompanies a celebration of the emergence of this tangle.

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.
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.
