Last week, 7 of 7 at Hundred Years Gallery for DRonULtMaRAtiOthenHEcATe
I give my heartfelt thanks to Montse Gallego Reyes for offering me this opportunity to show my work in Hundred Years Gallery alongside Graham Mackeachan in the context of the improvised DrOnULTiMaRAtIOthenHECatE festival with improvised sound at its core.
It has been a whirlwind time with happiness written all over as each exhausting weekend draws to a close. There have been new and exciting collaborations, extraordinary performances, poignant heart stopping moments – a lot of fun and an amazingly positive response from performers who have all taken part in the way of good will ie unpaid and loved.
To the performer’s and their generosity especially I extend every good wish I can think of
and to the performers and to the audiences alike thank you for being so great – keep in touch – we might just do it all again……..
so hope to see you this weekend which will have much to do with Kurt Schwitters with Giles Leaman, and myself as sound poemer letting loose, playing it dangerously beside an original Schwitter’s recording
some of the many u tubes made and still being made

DRON Performance Festival III. Saturday 23rd of February, from 6.30
For the DRON Festival, the Jerico Orchestra will collaborate with digital artist Andor Merks and his Composition Robotics.
Using projected images as an interactive graphic score this first time meeting promises a trip into uncharted areas, as visuals by Pete Jones are fed into the digital mixer … the collective mind of the orchestra in action, the projected score, and the response of the audience together create a unique work which must be experienced in its totality. This performance for DRON Festival also incorporates strategies for group improvisation devised by Michael Walter. Also during the evening, Jerico Orchestra flautist Wil Miles will play a solo set inside the Dron.
Gretchen Dharma Sky Cult : An anagrammatic, name-shifting, all-electronic improvising trio of Martin Hackett, synthesizer, David Grundy, laptop & Stuart Chalmers, tapes. Together their music is cut-up, sampled, sliced, randomisation and control jerking apart or together in some kind of evolving improvised form.
Stasis 73 : Formed in 2009 by a collective of creatives from Hastings. Film makers, painters, poets and musicians. The aim of the project is to move beyond the concerns of more traditional music making, yet not fall into the trap of being labelled experimental.
Here they present an immersive live sound and film installation consisting of drones and sonic explorations, utilizing electro-acoustic manipulated pure noise, voice, text, whisperings, field recordings & darkness, creating an atmosphere that is simultaneously oppressive, uplifting, nostalgic and intriguing, using refracted collected filmed & found images, projected and refilmed, creating a multi-layered textural imagery, complementary to the sound layers: spoken and text sound, found object sounds, acoustic sounds, acoustic sound exploration and processed acoustic sounds, decay, and extended drones.
Monster Zero ” Reunion “
A constructed void.
A psychotic blend of harsh noise, underworld lyrics and acid landscape.
Performance by this trio from Portugal/Spain/London featuring Cementimental / The Techno Widow / Adolfo Healer
