VIRIDIAN ENSEMBLE :: Tape Edition
Viridian are an interdisciplinary ensemble, who advocate for women in the experimental arts from eclectic specialisms and backgrounds. Inspired by the vanguards of feminist free improvisation such as Les Diaboliques & Feminist Improv Group, as well as 16mm expanded film, Viridian is an ethereal amalgam of image, voice, cello, double bass and percussion, which re-imagines folkloric forms and tropes of femininity. Dissociative states, keening, and the supernatural inspirit the ensemble. Each performance evokes utterances, nonsensical languages, and trans-species forms of communication through collective rhythm, tone, and resonance.
When two twos come together they make a four. The four have been sitting for unknown periods of time in micro-herbal infused sessions of cultivation and repolarisation. They invite you to join them in in search of unknown species of flora in the isles of interplanetary garden centres.
Property Developers Are Reptiles is an early proto-t shirt design from BKV Industrial (the graphics arm of Bokeh Versions and Avon Terror Corps). Re-purposed for maximum 2019 visibility while Avon is carved up by this new world order of ‘local investment opportunities’, ‘environmental officers’ and dirty dirty brick and mortar deals done way cheap (behind locked doors in ivory towers). Printed by BKV Industrial and EC Ryder on highly desirable safety green tees (there is a global stock shortage of these at the moment) – prototypes have received awkward roadside glances from men in suits (not guaranteed).
VICKY SMITH (w live score)
Vicky Smith has been practicing experimental animation for 25 years. In her work over the last 8 years the film camera is bypassed for a set of inscriptions made directly onto film stock through physical contact – using the entire body as a mark-making instrument.
A high drama duet of sewing machine and tap dance. Scissors on thread; needle through cotton; metal via body on floor. The sounds of the machine and tones of the floor played out in tap, creating pace, tempo and rhythm in repetition and unification.
DJ DUCTAPE (Queens Of The Neighbourhood / CHAMP)
One half of Queens Of The Neighbourhood, the inexorable female and non-binary audio platform on Noods Radio, DJ Ductape mashes up the sonic-spuds and serves out bygone futurism with a side of flesh, flame and phlegm.
Jo-ha-kyū is a performance-based on Yokai (shapeshifting ghosts or spirits) in Japanese folklore. Using visuals, drum triggers, hand made instruments and masks this performance guides you through the concept of Jo-ha-kyu and embodies well know characters from traditional folklore such as Obake, Tengu, Kappa and Rokurokubi.
