Slacking in space

With a minimal input from _minimalVector Bartosz takes it easy and enjoys Chris Cook and Dan Powells set.

Although he did have to work hard on the slide projectors – analogue style for The Vainglories.

This is “Crystalloid“.

And then 4 big blokes in furry suits: MSG playing subtle dense bass music.

May was a packed event, lots to pack in and a wide variety of things.

But only after first making some notes……

Les Dins

Hitting the floor running. Or dancing was Les Dins. Many moons ago the brains behind _minimalVector made quite popular house records. Now plundering the stores near his hideaway in Picardy for Nino Nardini records he’s gone back to his roots. Sort of.

Then Chris Cook of Same Actor and Hot Roddy fame (link to wrong cd) linked up with Chris Parfitt of 21 Grams and Noteherder & McCloud for a semi improvised microtonal piece featuring Soprano Saxophone and processed Sitar. Video below, no decent pictures I’m afraid. But heres some audio.

Jammed in at the last minute we had a special appearance from nwodtleM, Canada’s king of the cassette cutup. This time cutting up video footage to make music. A technique he obscurely calls “Jawa”. It works as funny video montage, and bizarrely, sounds just like nwodtleM.

Capping the evening off we had a return of the excellent Meat Dream from Eastbourne. A male/female DiY noise-art guitar and drums duo with electronics and processing. Not at all like the white stripes.
Not at all.
