The Spirit of Gravity present
Ryan Jordan / Sunday Mourning / Gus Garside and Dan Powell

Sunday Mourning: analog-psychedelic-one-man-jam-band-sandwich

Gus Garside and Dan Powell: Double bass and electronics

Ryan Jordan

Response Systems is an exploration into audiovisual performance using
an array of sensors and DIY electronics responsive to physical movements in order to control programs such as Pure Data (Pd). It also looks at reshaping and replicating the body through the use of noise, DIY technology and stroboscopic light. This work uses DIY hardware to build a new interface for live computer music performance, aiming to turn the performers body into an instrument allowing them to embody new technologies and electronic devices.

The performance alters the perspective of the performer and performance space through noise, strobe lighting and electronic devices. Flickering shadows of the
performers jerking movements, cables, and wires attached to the body are cast onto the walls of the performance space as the performers movements control screaming and shrieking hacked electronics and computer programes, spewing out their internal circuitry.

Sunday Mourning

Sunday Mourning is Mark Wagner (**k) and drummer Sanna Charles. Together they create a sonic hell-hole of acoustic doom, experimental folk and dense psychedelic atmospheres. Referencing anything from Death metal, Avant Guarde, Country and Americana and taking it down to new claustrophobic depths, Sunday Mourning have just played a headline set at NYC's Coco66 to great success.

Gus Garside and Dan Powell

Dan Powell & Gus Garside have been working together on an improv project for the last two years. Dan Powell began making sound for installation works in the mid 90's. Since moving to Brighton in 2000 he has concentrated on experimental and improvised music. He is a member of Brighton based collective The Spirit of Gravity and has performed at spaces across the UK. Dan has released work on net labels Hippocamp & Wrong Lab and his work has been played on WFMU, Radio Reverb & BBC Radio 3. He is currently using small instruments - Tibetan bowls, mbira, recorder, toys & junk - and processing the sound live via a laptop using Audiomulch & Pure Data. Gus Garside has worked in a variety of musical settings – jazz, contemporary music, pop, cabaret, dance, theatre and, most importantly, improvised music where he has performed with many leading players. Gus formed arc in 1988 and their third album "the pursuit of happiness" was released on Emanem Records in 2009. He formed In Sand in 2004 and their first album “Whatever” came out mid 2008. Gus is part of the Brighton Safehouse collective. He has collaborated with a wide range of improvising and contemporary music players and dancers and frequently works with laptop musicians and also performs solo. “…where he differs from the average jazz bassist is in the range of sonorities he conjures from his instrument” Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD

There will be the elektrocreche available for any unaccompanied toys who will be looked after during the intervals by our professionally trained team of volunteers. And anybody else that wants to bring along a sound toy to play with.

New toys from France for the elektrocreche.

Join in and become one of the stars on the future elektrocreche compilation being recorded at every gig. You too could be on a compilation with Henry Shitmat, Shige Scotch Egg, Tony Rimbaud, DJ Cheesemaster, Monster Bobby, Dan Powell, Chris Cook, Tim Exile, Gillian Alder, Caleb ....coool.

Hosted by our very own 'Laptop' Lee Hume
