The Long Tone
04 Apr | 19:30

For their Unsound-commissioned project “Concealed”, UK duo Demdike Stare have created an uncanny live work of sound and vision in collaboration with a quintet of string players from Sinfonietta Cracovia, reflecting a variety of influences from giallo movie scores to sounds from early hardcore rave and the American noise scene. Live visuals created especially for the project by filmmaker Michael England (previously known for collaborating with the likes of Autechre) explore urban decay, bleak English landscapes and Japanese mythology. Phill Niblock is one of New York’s true music treasures, a master of drone and minimalism who is now over 80 and still going strong. He will appear with Pauline Kim and Conrad Harris on violin to perform "Unipolar Dance" as well as present a solo piece, with projections of his own experimental film work. Poland's Stara Rzeka offers a sound he calls "magical brutalism", blurring the outer perimeters of black metal, noise and ambient. Tickets available via ISSUE Project Room.
