Dan Bennett’s Set from June 2014′s Bang the Bore at Cafe Kino

From our show earlier this year with Kostis Kilymis and Tony Bevan

Computer, Phono Cartridge, Prepared Speaker and 9v battery recording.
Computer generates saw waves, pulse trains and raw voltage offsets, and controls feedback level and playback of a recording of a 9v battery discharging through a speaker and a potentiometer. Sound sources are mixed and sent to prepared speaker and PA. Sounds are returned to computer via a phono cartridge on the prepared speaker. First performance with this setup.

Room mic recording kindly made by Seth Cooke

RIE NAKAJIMA, CONSORTS, MIGUEL PRADO - KINO, BRISTOL, 17.10.14.

RIE NAKAJIMA | CONSORTS | MIGUEL PRADO
Café Kino| 108 Stokes Croft | Bristol | BS1 3RU

Rie Nakajima
Winner of the Arts Foundation Experimental Music Prize 2014
‘Using sound, I look for a state where things start to react to each other, freed from their specific contexts’ explains Japanese-born Rie Nakajima of her work. Since studying sculpture at Chelsea and later the Slade Rie has been working on installations and performances which produce sounds using a combination of kinetic devices, audio materials and found objects. Each work is unique as she composes in real-time in direct response to the unique context of each space creating rhythmically complex and self-developing sounds, from the micro-acrobatics of her spinning wind-up toys to the blare and wet echo of air passing through water. As says a writer for Void+ ‘Nakajima’s sonic magnificence is in how her objects alter from quotidian to sonic arrangements through repetition and accumulation….like an army of them…they accrue and are soundings, and the experience of the work is wholly majestic.’ Rie is the current associate artist at London’s experimental music hub, Café OTO, where she recently performed with David Toop and has exhibited and performed widely, both in the UK and overseas.

Consorts
Tonight, Consorts will be a Septet of Dominic Lash, Angharad Davies, Tom Jackson, Benedict Taylor, Nick Malcom, Hannah Marshall and Alex Ward. The ensemble was formed in 2013 to explore the possibilities of combining sustained-tone music and improvisation (both guided and free). Compositions are written for specific musicians but the membership of the ensemble will be flexible from composition to composition.

Miguel Prado
Miguel Prado is an electronicist, writer, composer and collaborator with, among others, Mattin, Julian Skrobek, and Michael Pisaro. His works have ranged from the Wandelweiser detournement Comedy Apories (which kept the silences but swapped out the breathiness and soft tones for canned laughter), through noise music, to his more recent interest in what he labels “the geotraumatic evacuation of the voice”. Consistently fascinating, we’re looking forward to his first gig as a Bristolian.
