2nd August at the Green Door Store: Distant Animals (in a forest of signs) / I’m Dr Buoyant / Not For The Suffering Type

Distant Animals (in a forest of signs)
Celebrate the launch of their LP

Distant Animals is the artistic output of Daniel Alexander Hignell, a researcher and sound, video and performance artist from South East England. Hignell has developed a practice indebted to political and participatory resonance of creative acts, interrogating notions of autonomy, collaboration, and the tension between sense (what is perceived by the senses) and sense(what is made sensible by the community). He has recorded, written, performed and researched numerous socially-oriented sound works across Europe, often choosing to work with a diverse range of collaborators, including visual artists, choreographers, theologians, lawyers, and political activists.
With this open-ended approach to composition, his new album ‘Lines’ relies on conceptually rich sonic phrases, exploring over its length both the purity of a musical tapestry that amounts to little more than a complexly modulated square wave -often pushing the filters that shape it to near breaking-point -and the rhythmic dissonance of the voice, noise, and distorted bells that erupt violently from it as the work progresses.

I’m Dr Buoyant
The return of dark loops and distortion

Following a test run in November Thee Founder I’m Dr Buoyant returns to his solo performance mode, but exploring a darker aesthetic. Wielding a more dissonant sound palette, his music is now designed to be more intense and unsettling, reflecting a negative response to contemporary existence. Promoting his latest BandCamp release “Dark Looper”, copies of a short run remix CD will also be available on the night.

Not For The Suffering Type
LoFi electronic pop improvisations

NOT FOR THE SUFFERING TYPE is the pop improvisation duo of Eleanor Callaghan and Iain Paxon. Literary inspiration comes from Eleanor’s teenage diaries, automatic writing and Christian songs from the Sacred Harp song book. Iain plays mostly bass and drum machine, Eleanor plays mostly keyboard.
