Resterecords is celebrating their new release, a collaboration between Ain Bailey & Jockel Liess. Ain Bailey will be performing her piece 'Five Car Train to Freemont' which responds to Jockel Liess’ work “Irregular Atmospheric Motion”.
Ain Bailey is an artist, composer and DJ. Her compositions encompass field recordings and found sounds and are often inspired by reflections on silence and absence, feminist activism and architectural acoustics. She has developed numerous collaborations with performance, sonic and visual artists, creating multichannel and mixed media installations and soundtracks for moving image, live performance and dance. Her practice explores sonic autobiographies and the constellation of sounds that form individual and community identities.
Previous work includes Oh Adelaide, a collaboration with artist Sonia Boyce (Tate Britain, the Whitechapel Gallery, The Kitchen, New York); The Range (Eastside Projects, Birmingham; And We’ll Always Be A Disco In The Glow Of Love (Cubitt Gallery, London); Remember To Exhale created with Ego Ahaiwe Sowinski (Studio Voltaire, London as part of their Desperate Living programme). Version (Wysing Arts Centre); Atlantic Railton, within architect Sumayya Vally’s 2021 Serpentine Pavillion and as part of the Listening To The City sound installation programme; Untitled: (Our Wedding) (CCS Bard, NYC) and Trioesque (Bruckenmusik Festival, Cologne).
Jockel Liess is an artist and composer whose practice and research is focused on the introduction of natural flexibility into live-generative computer improvisations. Best described as organic compositions, his meditative audiovisual environments are exhibited in gallery environments as large-scale installations as well as in durational concerts settings. Jockel’s work has been exhibited amongst others at the ICA, Cafe Oto, Kinetica Art Fair, Mile End Pavilion, Bargehouse and Old Vic Tunnels in London, the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, Tadu Contemporary Art, Bangkok, H-Gallery, Chiang Mai, France Fiction Gallery, Paris. He has presented his work at The Streaming Festival, Netherlands, Espacio Enter - International Festival of Creativity, Innovation & Digital Culture, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Optica Paris/Cordoba. In 2016 he started releasing recordings of his work with the experimental music label Resterecords, and is a member of The London Group since 2018.
Adam Matschulat is a Brazilian composer, sound designer and engineer. His diverse output of sound works have included electroacoustic composition, musique concrete, field recording, and structural noise music. He composes through the exploration of psychological states, rendering sonic experiences that are psychological investigations in and of themselves.
He has worked under a number of monikers, but his first EP under his own full name was released on Cafe OTO's TakuRoku label during lockdown. It was in part a collaboration with the duo @xcrsw (Seymour Wright and Crystobel Riley) and it was featured on Kate Carr’s Atmospheric Densities on Flaming Pines. He was awarded a residency at Snape Maltings through Britten Pears Arts (2023) and he has been commissioned by Edinburgh University to compose an electroacoustic piece for a project in collaboration with the science department in UAM (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) as part of a research on dark matter observation (2022/2023).
He also ran the label Resterecords, on which he released electroacoustic composer Rocío Cano Valiño, computer musician Ain Bailey, among others. As well as his own projects, which include Matschulat, a vehicle with which he explored a noisier palette within the formal structures of musique concrete. His sound work has had international radio play on radio shows including NTS, Resonance Extra, LYL Radio in Switzerland, FADE radio in Athens, and others.
