Immersion is a free-entry experimental music/sound-art event presenting a soundtrack of ambient journeys, electronic atmospheres, noisescapes and tones/drones.

Immersion is an arena for new and established international artists performing experimental electronic music; partnered by stimulating projected visuals processed live.

The Flea-Pit is a unique café-bar/arts venue with comfortable retro furniture - and a gallery/performance area, in the heart of east/central London’s vibrant art scene and is located only five minutes away from Shoreditch High Street. Nearest tube: Old Street (exit 2).

The artists featured in Immersion 04/10 are:

Con Brio:
“Con Brio is pure electronica - a sound that glitches through heavenly glances of beauty then yanks you back to reality with cut-up beats dirty enough to make a hammer bleed. Direct to the brain quality melodies laced with clever beats.”

“Duskrider delves into the world of subconscious sounds. Nostalgia through note and resonance. Duskrider’s music evokes a film scene or setting, a rainy day in Gibraltar, or a forest in the snow; you just know there will be a 'poignant' close up coming up soon, then a mournful look into the river, before a painfully long drive into Moscow to 'deal with the emotional problems' the first two thirds of the film have been setting up. Thankfully this is only the sound track to such a film and this film will never exist.”

“Magnumquilter's music displays a hybrid of Post-Rock guitar hook's merged together with Electronic bliss. With complex rhythmic structures having been cooked up in his home studio for live use, Magnumquilter displays his experimental and improvised side with the use of live mixing and playing of instrumentation over the top of distorted, glitchy beats.”

“ry-om are Ryo Ikeshiro and Tom Shelton. Using laptops, guitars, feedback loops, synths, instrumental samples and vocals, they create electronic noise and acoustic soundscapes. All music is improvised and performed live without sequencing and varies from pulses to irregular rhythms, tonality to dissonance, digital glitches to acoustic instruments and rich, reverb-drenched textures to austere, upfront bleeps. The result is somewhere between electronica/noise and electroacoustic/contemporary music.”

“Presents a series of sound experiments created by building upon non-programmed minimal repetitions of static noise and rhythmic feedback - processed through multiple filters and defined by accidental and reactive parameter interactions.”

Tone Poem:
“Tone Poem perform live using guitar, moog and fretless bass to create continuous sound sculptures that take the listener on a journey of chance and stripped back melodies, with no maps other than curious consequence.”

Visual credits:

"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."

For Immersion, pixelpusher will also be sourcing from modern video artist Pamela Vitale's atmospheric video footage to create new unique visual works.
