  • Aug 29Akio Suzuki | Conceptual Soundwork | Asylum & Maverick Projects
  • Akio Suzuki | Conceptual Soundwork

    Suzuki presents a form of performance he refers to as Conceptual Soundwork. Applying a number of self-imposed, simple and austere rules, he uses objects close at hand in a mode of "intellectual play". While these events do on the one hand express a critique of meaningless improvised performance, at the same time Suzuki is constantly aware of the audience's process of listening and he attempts to create contemporaneous connections with the site of performance.

  • Sep 28Merzbow/Thurston Moore/Mats Gustafsson/Balasz Pandi: QUARTET
  • Merzbow/Thurston Moore/Mats Gustafsson/Balasz Pandi | QUARTET + NAKED

    Japan:London 2016 brings you the world's first ever live performance featuring Japanese noise musician Merzbow, Hungarian drummer Balázs Pándi, Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson (Fire! Orchestra, The Thing) and Sonic Youth great Thurston Moore

    Opening the evening are NAKED, who submerge rich pop melodies in layers of white noise. Lonely, haunting and almost lush vocals explore sexuality and voyeurism, piercing through brutal sonic sculptures and cold drum machines. This performance comes as they launch of their debut album, ZONE, released on LuckyMe on 30 September.
