18th November at the Scope: Futuro De Hierro / Franck Barriac / Gus Garside

The Spirit of Gravity presents the Scope XVI

Futuro De Hierro
Destroyed sounds and rhythmic electronics

Futuro De Hierro is the new noise and rhythmic electronic project by multi-instrumentalist and producer Víctor Hurtado (Ordre Etern, Qa’a and Huan) and collaborator of artists such as Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten) and Nurse With Wound, among others.
Disjointed rhythms, between rhythmic noise concrete music and gabba/speedcore. Destroyed sounds, sonic detritus and live sound manipulation with a rock’n’roll attitude not usually found in solo projects.
Back in Brighton after his mind-blowing concert at Black Dove last July.

Franck Barriac
Futurist EA assemblies

“Mixing radio art and electronic improvisation. Futurist sounding and electroacoustic ambience assembled; a short but intense solo between noisy and pure sounds, mixed textures. Rugged sweetness from south France to south England: Punk poetic noisy zouk sounding solo gig.”
With the bonus of 4 channel sound.

Gus Garside
Wrestling with composed and improvised music

His performance at Scope is likely to include contemporary music, acoustic and electronic improvisation.. but who knows for sure?

“The double bassist, Gus Garside, is a bit of a legend on the improv scene, and watching him wrestle with his instrument is such a joy”
Daniel Alexander Hignell, Brighton Noise
“..veteran polystylistic jazzman, Gus Garside, sprung into life with a series of breathtaking double bass improvisations. the audience were mesmerised by Garside’s dexterous flair, humble mastery and radical subversion of his Titanic classical instrument. ”
Kyle McAllum, Extra normal
Gus 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.

Inspired by the late John Stevens, Gus took to running creative music workshops. This led him into leading music projects with musicians of a wide range of abilities. He performs in a number of improvising and contemporary music settings including his long standing string trio arc (with Sylvia Hallett and Danny Kingshill); The Static Memories, a duo with Dan Powell (on laptop and processed percussion and guitar), the West Hill Blast Quartet, a free jazz quartet with Ron Caines, Dan Spicer and Andy Pyne and a do with violinist Annie Kerr.
His most recent composition, The Sleepwalkers, for a 10 piece improvising string orchestra premiered at For Process, Newhaven Fort in 2014.
Gus is part of the Brighton Safehouse collective
