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 a sound artist and DJ. Her practice involves an exploration of sonic autobiographies, architectural acoustics, live performance, as well as collaborations with performance and visual artists. Among these is artist Jimmy Robert, who commissioned Bailey to create a composition for his 2017 show 'European Portraits' at PEER Gallery, London. “Oh Adelaide” (2010), her collaboration with the artist Sonia Boyce, has shown widely, and includes: Tate Britain; the Whitechapel Gallery and The Kitchen, New York. In 2016, Bailey was commissioned by Art Basel Miami Beach to compose for the Soundscape Park. Bailey also devised a Study Week at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, which considered the role of sound in the formation of identity. As well as this Bailey performed at Guest, Ghost, Host: Machine!, the 2017 Serpentine Marathon. 2019 saw Bailey complete a residency at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London. She was part of the group shows, “The Range”, at Eastside Projects, Birmingham and “RE:Respite”, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow. In 2019 Bailey also had a solo show at Cubitt Gallery, London entitled “ And We’ll Always Be A Disco In The Glow Of Love’, and Bailey commissioned by Supernormal and Jupiter Rising festivals to perform a new composition. Currently, following a commission by Serpentine Projects, Bailey is conducting sound workshops with LGBTI+ refugees and asylum seekers.
Jockel Liess is an artist and composer whose practice and research is focused on the introduction of natural flexibility into live-generative computer improvisations.
