Organized Music from Thessaloniki is pleased to invite you to a small freak-noise convention, with representatives from around the globe and around the corner as well.
EMBARKER (US) & DEAD GUM (GR) are starting on a joint EU tour and their first stop is London, where they’ll haunt the mirrored basement of Power Lunches with loud bangs, naughty feedback screeches and submerged emotional left turns.
Joining in will be local ppl, KOSTIS KILYMIS & AUTOTISTIKA
Sets 8-11pm. £6 entry
Expect table-top noise, fuzzy guitars, foreboding atmospheres, and a good dose of heady drones.
EMBARKER is the solo project of audio visual artist Michael Roy Barker. Currently based in Philadelphia, he also plays / has played with such as Sharks with wings, The George Steeltoe Ensemble, and Hatchers. Mb uses a variety of electronics, modular synthesizer, homemade instruments, voice and processed audio collages to create hyperkinetic ADHD infused music that is often used as a soundtrack to found videos or as an interactive audio visual experience. He has performed widely in the US, and has also studied at STEIM in 2007 and been artist in Residence at the Experimental TV Center in Owego NY 2006-2007. He has a profound obsession with found media where he has released a CDr of found answering machine tapes on Heresee Records.
DEAD GUM is the project of Panagiotis Spoulos (Wham Jah, Reverse Mouth, also labelhead of Phase! in Greece). For this project Spoulos relies on guitar and voice through minimal effects to create instant songs, psychedelic collages and direct, stripped-down bursts. The music itself –partially improvised but fully psychographic– has anthropocentric characteristics and lo-fi character and flirts with punk, bedroom pop and analog noise.
KOSTIS KILYMIS works on audio feedback systems and re-presentation. His practice touches upon music, performance, installation work and video – developed using a mixture of electronic and acoustic approaches. He has collaborated with musicians such as Lucio Capece, Nikos Veliotis, Leif Elggren, Phil Julian, Sarah Hughes and Patrick Farmer. He also runs the Organized Music from Thessaloniki music label.
AUTOTISTIKA is the solo project of Michael Rodham-Heaps. … an improvised cassette pet of hypno loopage, ecstatic fallouts and rotting drone knots…
