Immersion is a free-entry experimental music/sound-art event featuring a soundtrack of electronic atmospheres, noisescapes, pulses/rhythms and tones/drones.
Immersion is an arena for new and established international artists performing live experimental electronic music; using laptops, synthesizers, field recordings, circuit-bent electronics and prepared/processed instruments.
All sounds are partnered by stimulating projected visuals processed live and tailored for each performance.
The Flea-Pit is a unique cafe-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 07/02 are:
Alex Mein Smith:
Alex Mein Smith uses an analogue complex structure to create an extended improvised piece during each live performance. Built from the bare bones of segmented studio recordings, the result is highly dynamic, contrasting aggressive rhythms with gentle pensive guitar.
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.
Gabriel Da Piaz:
Sounds and noises are organically produced from the guitar using various objects to 'prepare' the instrument, and create immersive soundscapes.
grohs is a sound manipulist - taking basic building blocks of sound and warping them into wild structures. Fragments of moments become swathes of sounds stretching into the distance. Whilst his recorded works tend toward the ambient end of the spectrum, his live shows can range from glistening soundscapes to full on noisefear. grohs is a co-founder of doombience duo Regolith, and prefers to describe his work as sound not 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.
Suero is not looking for an electronic-perfect-label to describe what it does. Suero does not use computers. Suero builds a real time sound-noise sculpture based on his own sounds, to drive the listener to an analogue extreme and dark field, rather than a "cliche electronic happiness".
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.
