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.

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.

Then come to the amazing Electric Spring Festival
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.
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).
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:
