Featuring Sean Addicott, Microdeform, EMEI, Those who Came Before Us..., Sam Grudgings, and Pascal Vine
To celebrate the release of his latest work, 'Tapesleep', Bristol Sound Artist Sean Addicott is hosting a collaborative performance - a single uninterrupted drone, featuring performances from Microdeform, EMEI, Those Who Came Before Us...
‘Tapesleep’ is a meditation on sleep, composed from the perspective of an insomniac, formed from corroded cassette recordings of acoustic instruments, field sound, and tape feedback. His work embraces ambient and drone music, with apparent nods to William Basinski, Gavin Bryers and Tim Hecker.
SEAN ADDICOTT https://seanaddicott.bandcamp.com/
Sean Addicott is a Bristol based Experimental Sound Artist, whose soundscapes incoporate Ambient, Drone, Noise, and Neo-classical tendencies. His latest work, ‘Tapesleep’, is a reflection on sleep, formed from recording acoustic instruments, and mechanical noise to distorted, warped, and affected cassettes. His work aims to create harmonic and immersive moments for reflection.
Microdeform is the solo Experimental Ambient project of Liam
McConaghy, guitarist of Repo-Man. Describable as “exploratory, ambient transmissions”, his work creates “cosmic oscillations, mesmeric dark sorcery shrouded in mist, memory recall, drifting slowly into the ether.”
THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE US AND US WHO ARE YET TO FOLLOW https://thosewhocamebeforeus.bandcamp.com/
The solo project of Bristol sound designer, producer and synthesizer fanatic Benjamin Chilton. Sitting on the wide spectrum between all-out noise and softly melancholic ambience, the project has supported grindcore lineups and solo art performances. Expect pure tones layered with the chaos of the city. Ascendant oscillations battling with battering sub pressure and drunken rhythms for a place in the sonic field.
EMEI is the solo project of Louise Brady in which she creates drifting ambient sound collages that are weaved from field recordings from various travels, synth, and voice. Her eponymous work has been released by Liam McConaghy’s Aphelion Editions, and creates a haunting, reflective, atmosphere.
