price: Headfirst Tickets


Empty Chalice post-industrial / blackened noise from Italy (UK debut)

BURL spiritual funeral industrial from Bristol

Dead Space Chamber Music + Tommy Creep dark ambient / ritual collaboration

This event will be raising funds for the The Churches Conservation Trust, which cares for the very special sacred space which is the setting for this event.

EMPTY CHALICE explores the broad field of post-industrial music, releasing death industrial records, power electronics, dark ambient, drone, and blackened noise. His most recent release, Mother Destruction (Toten Schwan Records) featured collaborations with ASHTORETH , Rare Form and Kurgan Hors, recieved wide acclaim, as "an unsettling piece of work, sitting at the dark end of atmospheric, freeform ambient works coming out of labels such as Cryo Chamber and Throne of Bael [...] There is a place in our lives for music like this: be it in the small hours, the darkness, or times when we need headspace, when it helps us to think" - Echoes And Dust.
We are honoured to welcome Empty Chalice on his first performance outside of Italy.

Cries and whispers through stone walls.

Dead Space Chamber Music are doing something visionary, unique and beautiful. What I imagine the more halcyon moments of Diamanda Galas's dreams must sound like. Great album, check it out" - The Unquiet Meadow, Asheville FM, USA.

"Hunched over his modular apparatus, Tommy Creep coaxed strange and mysterious sounds to match the visuals projected onto the ceiling of the crypt. It was spellbinding, the audience eirther seated on pews or on the floor, were transfixed for the duration of the performance" - Kodak Ghosts Run Amok, Bristol underground Zine

Artwork features an installation in the crypt by Ellen Southern (DSCM) and Markus Feiler (Berlin), from As Above So Below site specific artist residency 2018 www.sitesinging.wordpress.com. Design by Tommy Creep.

Location and access information
Address: Broad Street, Bristol BS1 2EZ. The church is situated on the junction of Broad Street and Quay Street. Entrance to the crypt on Quay Street/Nelson Street via a small door.

There is metered car parking on Broad Street and multiple city centre car parks nearby. https://en.parkopedia.co.uk/ The Grand Hotel is located nearby and the Guildhall is the closest landmark.

Due to this being an historic medieval building, there is no step free access. The crypt entrance is narrower and lower than a modern door. There are three and a bit steps down into the crypt totaling approximately 610mm in height. There is no handrail and there are no toilets on site, but we will provide information of facilities very close by. Please feel welcome to message us in advance or speak to us during the event, for any assistance we can offer.
