BEEF have partnered up with Bristol outer-music promoters Bang The Bore for the first event at The Brunswick Club, which sees two key players on the Asian experimental music scene visiting Bristol:
Ryu Hankil is one a group of Korean experimental musicians, who in the last decade have radically shifted the vocabulary of improvised music. He is interested in finding an alternative musical structure possessed by abandoned objects like clockworks, typewriters and telephones. Hankil’s typewriter instrument is a case in point, an instrument wired to enable the transcription of poetry to become a musical event.
Makoto Oshiro is a Japanese musician who builds his own micro-instruments from household objects and Tokyo’s abundant electronics shops, treating his performances as installations he distributed these instruments all over the space.
Stephen Cornford is a Bristol based media artist and experimental musician. This evening he will dismantle the image sensor of a compact camera during operation, prying apart its pixel grid in an act of live media vandalism.
