Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we have a great trio of three leading figures of improvised music: John Butcher (saxophones), Thomas Lehn (synthesiser), and John Tilbury (piano). All three have agile musical imaginations as well as exploratory rigour towards the possibilities of their chosen instruments and together produce improvised music of rare grandeur and eloquence.
On Friday and Saturday, we host a rare UK appearance from the Taipei-based Kandala Records, presenting the irregular landscape of the current experimental music scene in Taiwan with noise, power electronics, free improvisation and leftfield Nakashi.
All of this week’s listings and newly announced shows below.
Women In Sound / Women On Sound was established at Lancaster University in 2015 by sound artist and academic Linda O’Keeffe to explore women’s participation in sound practice and music technology. Building on these foundations, Goldsmiths UOL are holding the first Women In Sound / Women On Sound event in London on Thursday 16 June and would like to invite contributions from practitioners, students, and academics in sound and music.
The event theme and title is S.E.E [Sound, Education, Experience] and will focus on the visibility of women in sound practice and music technology. Its focus is to identify major challenges and trends for women in the field and how they can best support each other; but also celebrate and strengthen the existing, fruitful and diverse network of women across London working with or in sound.
Currently they have an open call for participation, for both talks and sound works, with a deadline of the 27th May.
