time:19:30pm
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Cacophonous Sarcophagus hosts an evening of ritual drone, electro-acoustic and experimental synthesis in the beautiful church above the crypt.

Father Murphy

[Torino, Piemonte, Italia]

(Avant! Records, Boring Machines, Aagoo records)

www.fathermurphy.bandcamp.com

"The sound of the Catholic sense of Guilt.

Through the years the band became one of the most peculiar musical entities coming out of Italy, part of that community that Simon Reynolds started to call the new “Italian Occult Psychedelia”.

The duo, well known for their really intense live shows, something in between a ritual and an artistic performance, furiously performed all over Europe, playing all the most important festivals, toured North America with the likes of Deerhoof, Dirty Beaches, Iceage and Xiu Xiu and recently joined Jarboe on stage for a tour to promote a collaborative EP."

"A ‘cult’ band in every sense of the word"- The Quietus

"An outsider’s operatic hellscape that calls to mind the starkest visions of Cormac McCarthy."- The Guardian

"Father Murphy conjure up a funereal atmosphere somewhere between homemade Morricone and toytown Goblin."- The Wire

Now they bid farewell with a final album and tour.

We thought it only made sense to have them revisit the church where they first played Bristol, back in Feb '14.

Miki Yui

[Dusseldorf via Tokyo]

(Cuspeditions)

www.mikiyui.com

"Japanese artist Miki Yui's work is delicately crafted from field recordings, synthesizer, solar oscillator and sampler. Yui is known for the unique nature of her music (apparent also in past collaborations with Rolf Julius, Rie Nakajima and Klaus Dinger).

"Her creations emulate nature´s own structures, and they go well beyond trying, they succeed where others fail. Her music is not a river, in fact it overflows in all directions imaginable, and it seems like the sounds and their interaction describe a kind of natural evolution.

It´s like watching a web woven in time-lapse, or mashroom or butterfly. Instead of the camera or the microscope it´s the microphon capturing the proceedings from close-up. Thus we experience the energy and life itself, unbridled and unrelenting." - Detlef Weinrich aka Tolouse Lowtrax

Sam Weaver

[Salford]

(Cuspeditions)

"Composer and sound artist whom uses the studio as a laboratory for sonic investigation and production. He is often re-routing instruments into abstraction and deliberately misusing his equipment: the Hordjik analogue modular synthesizer.

He is one half of London outfit Hungryghost, and has recorded and performed with Charles Hayward, Danny Saul, Ecka Mordecai, Otto Wilberg, Rachel Goodyear, Konstrukt, Tombed Visions, Gnod and Kevin Drumm.

His music exists between acousmatic music, free improvisation and experimental electronics, seeking to explore dynamics of sonic harmony and chaos.

His is one of three directors facilitating ‘Sine’s & Squares’ festival in association with NOVARS Research Centre, (University of Manchester)."

Mésange

(God Unknown)

https://godunknownrecords.bandcamp.com/album/heliotrope

Agathe Max (Kuro) - Violin

Luke Mawdsley (Cavalier Song) - Guitar

Their music is possessed and steered by a solemn power that embraces the elements and careers through dense electric skies; exposing signs that flutter and flare in dark elegance. Respective strings correspond and meander across ancient fields, while layered voices evoke serene pools of tropic sound, soon to be engulfed by inescapable tides of noise. Unfettered, yet critical, Mésange invites the listener to explore a downy and magnetic earth-scape, teetering between lightning and thunderclap. The tracks unfold like magic spells, each evoking chimes of hope, despair, freedom and oblivion."
