------------------------------------------------

The Mute Synth II (MSII) pushes through a pick-up-and-play approach. It is born out of Dirty Electronics’ ongoing commitment to DIY and noise aesthetics, and serves as a catalyst for experimenting with electronic sound. At the core of the instrument is a versatile mini patchbay that provides expansion and modification permutations and a grid-like visual representation of patched parameters using coloured jumpers. The patchbay encourages a particular interaction with the instrument and playfulness. The printed circuit board artwork has multiple touch electrodes in the form of small squares that provide a labyrinth of possible connections and resulting behaviors. Different rhythmic sequences are created through hybrid 4-bit binary coding, feedback loops and bit bashing. The MSII was released on Mute Records along with an album with tracks by Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle / Carter Tutti Void), Simon Fisher Turner, Dominic Butler (Bronze Teeth / Factory Floor), Kidkanevil, Dirty Electronics et al.

CONCERT

The Construct Has No Purpose
Dirty Electronics/Max Wainwright/Dushume
+ special guest Johan Eriksson

Datum:
21 Jan 2017 - 20:00

------------------------------------------------

It will be large, too large for the space it fills. It will become a place to be in, to perform in and around; it will direct and shape sounds and light.

Performances by Dirty Electronics, Max Wainwright and Dushume based on the theme of The Construct Has No Purpose. Electronics with damp sticks - sounds of stones and bristle brushes - meaningless text and liquid characters - rubbing bass and hanging artifacts.

John Richards explores the idea of Dirty Electronics that focuses on shared experiences, ritual, gesture, touch and social interaction. In Dirty Electronics, process and performance are often inseparably bound. The 'performance' begins on the workbench devising instruments and is extended onto the stage through playing and exploring these instruments. This approach is about making and ‘finding’ music through objects and things. Richards has been commissioned to create sound devices for various arts organisations and festivals and has released a series of hand-held synths on Mute Records.

Wainwright is concerned with states of flux and how useless or broken objects can be sounded. He likes to engage audiences in conversation, creating instruments, trading, donating or receiving objects, and performing on the objects, or simply watching and listening.

Dushume is influenced by Asian underground music and DJ culture. His work focuses on performing and improvising with purpose built do-it-yourself instruments, sampling and looping techniques, and re-mixing and re-editing approaches.

John Richards has worked closely with Max Wainwright and Dushume on various collaborations. They have also perfomred together as Dirty Electronics. Wainwright and Dushume are released on the Dirty Electronics Mute Synth II compliation album (Mute Records 2014), alongside Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle), Simon Fisher Turner, and Kidkanevil.

Sarah Hennies
Sarah Hennies (b. 1979, Louisville, KY) is a composer and percussionist currently residing in Ithaca, NY. Her work is primarily concerned with an immersive, psychoacoustic presentation of sound brought about by an often grueling, endurance-based performance practice that Nathan Thomas of Fluid Radio described as “a highly sophisticated and refined performance technique…that starts and ends with listening and encourages a different way of listening from its audience.”

Jeph Jerman & Tim Barnes
Across a dozen years and the distance from Cottonwood, Arizona to Louisville, Kentucky, the duo of Jeph Jerman and Tim Barnes has offered powerful, minimal music rooted in a shared dedication to the creative act of listening.

Jeph Jerman’s experimental roots run through the creative music scenes of Denver and Seattle, the 1980s cassette underground, and in more recent years a thorough sonic investigation of the desert Southwest where he lives and works.

Tim Barnes’s resume as a percussionist, engineer, and curator is studded with collaborators that outline the entire cosmos of avant-garde music from the 1960s onward, including Tony Conrad, Sonic Youth, Ken Vandermark (who appears here as a guest), Royal Trux, and Tower Recordings.

------------------------------------------------

Ikue Mori & Steve Noble
Ikue Mori and Steve Noble first played together in 2010 at London’s Cafe Oto. It was immediately evident to everyone in the room that something had clicked and a very special combination had emerged.

Apparently operating according to some sort of shared dream logic, Mori and Noble’s music is always unpredictable but never incoherent, switching suddenly between ominous abstract soundscapes and exuberant rhythmic interplay, peppered with strange recurrences, idiomatic fragments and vertiginous changes of perspective, and characterized by a strong sense of forward momentum.

From her beginnings drumming with the seminal no wave unit DNA, Mori has always had a distinctively percussive sensibility, and her deft electronic manipulations merge perfectly with Noble’s fiercely physical handiwork. Drums and their digital double: the similarities and differences overlap and interrupt, crystallize and dissolve, split and converge into a fast-flowing torrent of compelling musical activity. —
