Ecka Mordecai is sound artist and composer currently based in Todmorden. She composes for ‘cello using graphic scores and text, as well as creates sound objects.
Kate Armitage is an artist and a musician opposed to mystification of all kinds. Among her least favourite mystifications are the most deadly boring: "glamour", "talent" and "expertise". She is particularly interested in specifically feminist de-mystifications of performance; this is called playing like a woman.
The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and sounds created.
We'll be gathering at around 7.30pm, and it's all free, albeit with a collection for the guests. Everyone is welcome. Bring instruments, laptops, voices, toys...
Equipment note: Thanks to the generosity of the Lion there will be a full PA, and guitar amps and a bass cab available, though feel free to bring your own if you prefer. We'll also have DI boxes for laptops, synths and suchlike. Do get in touch with any questions.
Access note: Please note this event is up stairs, which we understand can be a barrier. If there is any way we can help you access the event, please get in touch and we'll do everything we can to make the event accessible.
As ever on a Tuesday, delicious beverages, Thai food, and a quiz will be on offer downstairs for your delectation.
We hope to see you there!
