Great triple-bill featuring three artists pushing at the edges of electro-acoustic composition and performance.
Cam Deas is a musician and sound artist based in London. His work is not subject to straightforward categorisation, with output ranging from solo acoustic guitar exploration through live electro-acoustic performance, to pure synthesis and computer generative music.
In 2018 he released Time Exercises on The Death of Rave, consisting of five works for synthesiser and computer, his first full length purely electronic work. The pieces explore polytempos and relative ratios between pitch and rhythm in a dense electronic space, described as “disembodied music playing out a thrilling dramaturgy and syntax of alien dissonance and disorienting rhythmic resolution”.
Rob Lye is an artist and musician based in London. Recent work has explored technology, landscape and psychotropic drugs, specifically Lithium and the burgeoning 'green' economy.
He recently received an ACE research grant (2019) to travel to Bolivia to visit the Salar de Uyuni and the Bolivian Amazon rainforest .
Recent releases include 'Modern Living' (2021) Takuroku, 'UN' Stairwell Editions (2021)
He has exhibited and performed internationally in venues such as TATE Britain, Cafe Oto, Whitechapel Gallery, APT Gallery, OUTPOST, ASC, FUSE, Caraboo etc.
Philomene Pirecki is a multidisciplinary artist based in London working with photography, painting, sculpture and sound. Pirecki’s audio-visual performance is built around somatic rhythms, layered breathing, vocalisations, resonance and electromagnetic energy. The recordings generated by her own body work with variations in her heartbeats, lung volume and capacity, physical exertion and emotional states. Using both analogue and digital technologies, she shapes this into textural sonic material and visceral bass rhythms.
Pirecki has performed live at Wysing Polyphonic music festival, Wysing Arts Centre and at South London Gallery, and has recently exhibited work at Supplement, NYC; Chelsea Space, London; Kunstmuseum Luzern (within Laure Prouvost’s solo exhibition); Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland; Pace gallery, London; Palais des Beaux-Arts, Paris; State of Concept, Athens; South London Gallery, London, and was shortlisted for the 2013 Max Mara Art Prize for Women.
She currently co-runs Casa Delirium a London based clubnight and performanceprogramme.
