Kev Sanders
Petals/Haidryer Excommunication head droning us into a gritty bliss. One of our favourite operators on noise’s progressive fringe.
“[T]he professorial neighbour of a rockabilly band attempting to school ‘em in modernism by by playing the tough bits from the 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtrack through the band’s own slashed practice amps.” – Rob Hayler

Luke Nickel
Luke Nickel (b. 1988) is a Canadian composer, artist, curator, and flutist currently completing a PhD at Bath Spa University under the direction of James Saunders. Luke’s flute playing is an attempt to rehabilitate his earlier classical training by taking inspiration from (among other things) Wandelweiser, imaginary dinosaur noises, drone music, singing in the shower, and minimalist sculpture. This will be Luke’s first public performance in Bristol.

HOME: HANDOVER | JEAN-LUC GUIONNET & ERIC LA CASA

HOME: HANDOVER - Jean-Luc Guionnet & Éric La Casa

In 2010, Jean-Luc and Éric were invited by Arika to the Uninstal festival in Glasgow (Scotland) to carry out a series of recordings with some inhabitants of this city, in their home spaces. Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a recording method, these people became the actors in a story about their everyday life.

Guionnet and La Casa considered this work as a composition under the form of a score with four phases.

Phase 1: Domestic Listening / Tipping Point (apartments 1, 2, 3 & 4). Each inhabitant (four in total) talks about his favorite music in his favorite room of his apartment.

Phase 2: Public Drift (Public performance of apartments 1, 2, 3 & 4). In a concert (Glasgow, 2010) five protagonists (two speakers and three musicians) can hear the four home recordings on their headphones and react following a rigourous protocol. Musicians are: Lucio Capece, Neil Davidson and Seijiro Murayama; voices are: Aileen Campbell and Gaël Laveugle.

Phase 3: House. Domestic Drift (Domestic performance of apartments 1, 2, 3 & 4). A fifth resident listens to the four home recordings, gives his comments and plays his instrument.

Phase 4: Studio. Synthesis Drift. Made between September 2013 and 2014 (Mixing of phases 1, 2 and 3 of each apartment). Jean-Luc and Éric overdubbed and mixed freely the three first phases of each apartment.

This process was carried out four times and results in a four CD boxset.

HOME: HANDOVER IS RELEASED THIS WEEK ON POTLATCH
