F.Ampism is the Brighton based sound artist Paul Wilson. “F.Ampism is the Smerdyakov branch on the Les Baxter family tree, a branch extending into the edges of exotica, where the jungle is unmade and overgrown, 1970s bush, a different sort of rainforest than David Tudor imagined. Exotica as a function becomes unrecognizable. Nor is it recognizable as a genre. Exotica becomes a feeling lost amid small stinging creatures, unpredictable downpour, whorls of vegetation, and numerous sets of teeth that nibble at nearly every inch, whose bite marks specify where the red and green lights ought to be stashed.” Tiny Mix Tapes

I am very pleased to announce that the Kneeling Coats have our first ever Huddersfield show on Tuesday 14th November at The Making Space, 21 Market Place, Huddersfield, HD1 2AX, United Kingdom. We will be playing along with our friends Andie Brown and a duo of Ryoko Akama and Anne-F Jacques.
The Making Space is a beautiful new arts and makers space in Huddersfield, with studio and project space and open to all sorts of exciting things. Hope you will join us.
ANDIE BROWN – glass and electronics
In 2007 Andie began performing and recording as a solo artist with glass and electronics under the name “These Feathers Have Plumes”, while also collaborating with a diverse range of artists, most often with Sharon Gal in the duo “Mami Wata”. She has recently moved from London to Yorkshire to begin her masters degree at Huddersfield University.
ANNE-F JACQUES & RYOKO AKAMA – objects and electronics
This collaboration of Canadian sound artist Anne-F Jacques and Ryoko Akama was only possible with the support of Algomech Festival 2017 (9-12th November) and this performance will be the follow-up to their residency at the festival.
Anne-F Jacques is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, erratic sound reproduction devices and construction of various contraptions and idiosyncratic systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sounds.
Ryoko Akama is a sound artist/composer/performer, who approaches listening situations that magnify silence, time and space and offer quiet temporal/spatial experiences. Her sound works employ small and fragile objects such as paper balloons and glass bottles, creating tiny occurrences that embody ‘almost nothing’ aesthetics.

The Exhibition is based on a 10 days workshop and invites artists, students and lecturers to work in an Omni-directional research Laboratory.
The “Cyberspace Exhibition” aims to propose different stimulating aesthetic experiences in what the public is performing as a set of disturbing agents who can introduce chaos into sensitive digital creations, involving alternatively emotions, behaviors, critical or alternative thinking, and capacity to act when surrounded by multimedia messages and representations.
We propose to experience and to open a discussion about the technologies which are invading our everyday life. How can we return to being the “cre-actor” and not only the downloader or consumer of pre-digested mass media messages? Is it possible nowadays to re-appropriate our own public/private space and the technological tools which belong to its control, to create and share un-formatted visions, critiques and Utopian visions?
By using interactive and sensitive principles, the different artworks presented will aim to modify the traditional relation viewer-representation and to open artistic visions to improbable changes initiated by others.
Different types of contemporary media, techniques and languages will be explored during the workshop like performance, installation, video and sounds-cape creation, interactive 3D environments and immersion in cyberspace using Oculus rift or HTC Vives Virtual Reality systems, augmenting bodies, instruments and objects by using different types of sensors and motors, MIDI/OSC controllers, Arduino boards, video tracking and motion capture techniques, visual programming and 3D game principles, etc; to develop inter-media prototypes based on dynamic approaches and to finalized interactive installations or performances for the Exhibition.

Prague Headphone Festival / Pražský sluchátkový festival
Free entry / Volný vstup
Koncept „tichého“ koncertu, recipovaného prostřednictvím sluchátek, proslavil festival Le Placard, který roce 1999 založil pařížský hudebník Erik Minkkinen. Od té doby se tato nomádská, v reálném čase streamovaná akce uskutečnila na mnoha místech po celém světě. V Česku sluchátkový festival inicioval v Praze usazený francouzský hudebník Romano Krzych – první ročník proběhl v roce 2012 v Komunikačním prostoru Školská 28 a spolupracovaly na něm ještě kulturní čtrnáctideník A2 a vydavatelství KLaNGundKRaCH. Další ročník se uskutečnil roku 2015 v Karlin Studios. Nyní se v rámci koncertní série A2+ k tomuto formátu vracíme, akce však proběhne nezávisle na mateřské platformě Le Placard.
Ideou festivalu, během něhož posluchači vnímají živou hudbu prostřednictvím sluchátek, je vytvořit intimní prostor pro poslech hudby nikoli v izolaci domova, jak bývá běžné, ale ve společnosti dalších lidí. Toto pojetí živého a zároveň zcela privátního poslechu hudby (ale třeba i mluveného slova nebo terénních nahrávek) si získalo mnoho příznivců na celém světě – částečně i proto, že produkce nejde jen do sluchátek na daném místě, ale bývá také streamována po internetu.
Festival je otevřený nejen posluchačům, ale i účinkujícím, nemá pevnou dramaturgii, pořadí je ponecháno na vystupujících.
Pořadatelé: A2, Romano Krzych, KLaNGundKRaCH, Punctum
Cyklus A2+ probíhá s finanční podporou Ministerstva kultury ČR, Městské části Praha 4 a nadace Český hudební fond.
Prague Headphone Festival was inspired by Le Placard. It was initiated in Paris 1999, since then the concept has grown to an international streaming festival, with many cities providing listening rooms for local and remote performances. French musician Romano Krzych introduced Le Placard in Prague in 2012 in cooperation with A2 magazine and KLaNGundKRaCH at Školská 28 Gallery. Then it was set up again in 2015 at Karlin Studios and now the same collective of organizers returns with the same format but this time independently of the home platform.
Organizers: A2, Romano Krzych, KLaNGundKRaCH, Punctum.

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…

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.
