Great triple-header featuring three London-based artists pushing at the fringes.
In association with canvas.
Please note that strobe lighting will be used in one of the three performances at this event.
Olan Monk is an Irish audiovisual artist & performer. His debut cassette MONK, released on Ashley Paul's Wagtail imprint, impishly pushes pop songs through fogs of haze. Recent performances at St John Sessions & the Barbican (supporting Actress and the London Contemporary Orchestra) transformed these spaces into immersive audiovisual experiments, creating an environmental experience of the voice as it merges with light & sound.
/third person narrative/
“Michael Speers is a musician from Northern Ireland, currently based in London. Feedback is the basis of most of his practice, using the limitations of himself and electronic / acoustic equipment - namely percussion, no-input mixer, sampled media, test equipment and field recordings - to depict his engagement with reality through sound phenomena. The resultant soundscape is generally dense and abrasive, focussing on texture and spatial / material resonance, which is formed live in improvised performances and in electronic compositional work.“
