Immersion
Experimental music/sound-art event

7.30pm

Immersion is a free-entry experimental music/sound-art event featuring a soundtrack of electronic atmospheres, noisescapes, pulses/rhythms and tones/drones.

Immersion is an arena for new and established international artists performing live experimental electronic music; using laptops, synthesizers, field recordings, circuit-bent electronics and prepared/processed instruments.

All sounds are partnered by stimulating projected visuals processed live and tailored for each performance.

Immersion promotes the whole notion of DIY/independently generated music - free of commercial constraints, or constrictions of catagorisation.

The artists featured in Immersion 03/04 are:

0 > 1:
0 > 1 is an alias for the miscellaneous musical deluge of London-based electroacoustic composer Lee Fraser. This performance will feature the live sequencing and manipulation of pre-recorded sound objects alongside complex generative micro-rhythmic structuring.

SS_R:
Experiments with lo-fi electronics, noise and field recordings have been used to produce drones and repetitions - creating minimalist tracks that lie somewhere between machine-noise and 1970's sci-fi horror soundtracks.

The Jones Memorandum:
A one man sound project that originally had no intention of going further than the kitchen table. Simplistic beats, velvet chords and the wondrous metronomic melody of various photocopier machines are guaranteed.

pixelpusher:
pixelpusher (Evan.Raskob) is a live video performance artist, or "pixelist". After a few years of pixel-pushing across New York City, he now plies his trade on the mean streets of London. pixelpusher generates video out of a controlled chaos of photographic images, simple shapes, animations, sounds, and live video feeds. All software is homemade, all imagery is created live; things may go wrong in beautiful ways, and no performance is ever the same.

Transphormetic & yesyesnono:
Oli Laurelle & Paul Prudence are real-time visual performers working with generative systems and processed video to create graphic sound-responsive works. They work separately under the names of yesyesnono and Transphormetic, as well as jam together for a unique brand of abstract experimental visual hedonism.
