For the past week whilst the RCA have been exhibiting at Machines Room for London Design Week I’ve had a couple of gigs, which are the first two under the Rhythm & Drone heading.
Firstly in Ivychurch, Romney Marsh in Kent, I played a set using three analogue synths and dubplates of recordings of windfarms by Caleb Madden across a three speaker system. I’d rehearsed the set at Machines Room and also prepared some records to use in the performance.
Secondly in Venice for the opening of Symphony of Hunger: Digesting Fluxus in Four Movements, I played four sets to a new instructional score called Holon Music. The performance(s) were very much informed by my research on the residency , and I used records modified using the machines there which will be left as part of the exhibition.
