Hidden Channels: Experimental and improvised music

Sunday 21 January @ 2:00 pm6:00 pm

Experimental and electronic group improvisation trying out different formats (and none) as well as short experimental sets and a chance to see and show music and sound hardware, self-invented hacks, techniques and self-written software projects.

Featured set by Eugene Aram, a duo using improvised bass and guitar, noise and processing.

Featured live sets this time come from Eugene Aram, ARWA and laura dymphna, with a playback of Philip Cornett’s ‘other places’ — a site-specific sound composition using field recordings made at Quip & Curiosity during bad timing’s ‘Off Plan’ residency at Quip & Curiosity in 2023, and beyond.

Eugene Aram (Tony Venezia) – a drone/noise project on the Wilbury Tapeworm netlabel. They’re joined by Xavier Marco del Pont (3 Versions of Judas) on guitar to perform a semi-structured piece built around a voice loop of spoken verse taken from Thomas More’s Utopia.

Eugene Aram also played at Soundlab103 at Waterbeach Barracks in 2023 for the day co-curated by Concrete Gazebo and Bad Timing.
