30th June 6-9pm
6-9pm William Mackrell – Interruption (solo)
In ‘Interruption (solo)’ a body lies upon a transparent shelf containing a faulty fluorescent light tube that flickers and hums sporadically. Whilst the bulb struggles to remain lit, headed to its impending and inevitable death the performer attempts to ingest the light’s vibrations passing through her diaphragm, excreted via vocal sounds and exhalations.

2pm Rebecca Glover – SLABS EP Launch and gig with Emma Bonnici
SLABS is a band of sculptures and humans. Collaborating through feedback, harmony and distortion their improvised music defies genres and articulates a new way of listening to objects and their incredible voices.

2.30-6pm William Mackrell – Interruption (solo)
4pm miprojects (Helen Michael, Anastasia Mina) – A million love songs
A million love songs is a series of performances of live translations by miprojects based on collected correspondence about personal, cultural and political conditions between friends in Athens and London.
4.30pm Claire Nichols with Luca Somigli and Argyris Thomoglou – The FT Summer Variations
The FT Summer Variations is a new iteration of Claire Nichols’ musical collaborations, following performances at the Florence Trust Winter Open and at Enclave Lab, curated by Sol Polo, earlier this year. For this performance, Nichols will improvise with guitarist Luca Somigli and drummer Argyris Thomoglou, creating an evolving composition with found objects, drums, guitars and pedals. The trio will play with the deconstruction of Nichols’ original sculptural composition, building new auditory and visual landscapes from its moment by moment shifts in form.
8th July 4-6pm
4pm Rachel MacRae – Music From the Whine of a Dog for his Bone
…steam, vapes… fidget spinners, ley lines… smartphone, black mirror… telluric cultures enriched with shards, corms, nodules, the sunk solids of gravity. I have raked up a golden and stinking blaze… old things more complex and entrenched than any conservative re-write… a golden and stinking blaze… both mud and flame.
5pm – Rebecca Glover – SLABS gig with Emma Bonnici and Fritha Jenkins
