An intimate, informal evening of darkwave / dark ambient music by solo Bristol based artists.
Contrasting the jarring with the serene - combining elements of post-punk, early industrial, goth and synthpop with soft ambient synths, arresting yet melodic vocals, discordance and mechanical beats.
ELLEN SOUTHERN: SITE SINGING (voice / field recordings, Bristol)
Using voice as both a compositional tool, and as a direct sound-based method of interacting with site, Site Singing is based on the idiosyncrasies which arise in this relational process. As well as on-going field trips to sites including ancient long barrows, medieval ruins and an abandoned Victorian stone bridge, the project is constantly expanding towards exhibitions, collaborations, and semi-improvised solo performances, which combine live, mediated and pre-recorded elements. As well as being the vocalist and sound/visual artist in Dead Space Chamber Music, Ellen Southern has also appeared as part of The SeeR experimental performance collective.
