£16 £14 Advance £10 MEMBERS

AD 93 celebrate 10 years with live performances by Martha Skye Murphy (whose debut album ‘Um’ is due for release on the 14th June 2024), Damsel Elysium - the multidisciplinary artist and a DJ set by Moin.

Martha Skye Murphy

Martha Skye Murphy is an experimental chanteuse whose enigmatic presence emanates in her constant vocal mutability, both in recordings and on stage. Murphy's dexterity, and the use of her 'abject instrument', makes confining her music to one genre difficult and has led to eclectic collaborations. In 2021, her contribution to Squid's debut album 'Bright Green Field' was heralded by Pitchfork as the 'album's most exhilarating stretch of sound' in the lead single 'Narrator'. Murphy has released music with the NYC-based duo LEYA, featured on Nick Cave's album 'Push the Sky Away', and has an ongoing project with legendary guitarist Roy Montgomery. Murphy's debut album is set for release in spring 2024. She demands active listening and beckons the audience to 'come as they were'.

Damsel Elysium

Damsel Elysium is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, experimental sound, visual & performance artist based in London. Damsel utilises double bass, violin, piano and original field recordings in order to explore alternative communication and connections with physical spaces and nature. Their aim is to establish an expressive world that speech or writing could never transmute.

Moin

Moin are a three piece based in London that comprises of Tom Halstead and Joe Andrews of the band Raime (Blackest Ever Black, RR) and percussionist Valentina Magaletti who operates over a great range of projects such as Vanishing Twin, Tomaga and Lafawandah.

The band navigate a revolving set of influences from obvious touch points such as alt rock, post-punk, art-rock and doom metal to more abstract ideas found in improv and found sound recording. In addition to these more closely related areas, shades of electronic music are still present providing a constant dialogue between the two practices.

The sound is direct but subtly re-assembled.
