Friday 29 October
We are pleased to welcome Spacedog to our Random Friday lineup. 2 sisters/sound artists Jenny and Sarah Angliss, who have created Live sound work unlike anything you will have seen before.
Spacedog bring you a night for the curious that's more fun than any laptop gig. Humans perform live with robots made from bells and dilapidated dolls. Their intricate music also includes theremin, saw, vocals, waterphone, keyboard and guitar.
Spacedog perform their own numbers, as well as some highly unusual takes on the European songbook. The Spacedog lineup varies from solo to a group of four musicians. It almost always includes Clara 2.0, the theremin-playing robot doll.
Bela Emerson is an innovative and prolific performer of electric cello, electronics, tenor viol and musical saw. She creates passionate, evocative and spontaneous music of no definable genre, exhibiting influences ranging from grrl punk, pop, avant-jazz, rock, experimental electronica and techno to Balkan folk & gypsy music.
Bela's solo performances are reputedly intense and exhilarating. Using an array of electronics, pedals and effects she takes the cello way beyond its usual sphere, building layers of rhythm and sound to create ‘noiseworlds’. She to produces an amazing array of sounds using the strings and bow but also utilises every other part of the instrument in her performance.
Bela has performed festivals including Glastonbury, Supersonic, Bestival and The Big Chill. Her music has been broadcasted on BBC Radio including a five-session recording with Lianne Hall for Radio One's legendary DJ, John Peel. Recently, career highlights include recording with The Damned and British Sea Power, and touring worldwide with the Lost and Found Orchestra.
The third act to complete October's Random Friday comprises an audiovisual installation, a musical and visual journey through the unique world of Overlap. Expect dream-like locations populated by obscure archive characters, playfully mixed to atmospheric electronica. Overlap have entertained audiences from Glastonbury to Manhattan galleries with their seductive imagery and music.
