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”.

Recent exhibitions and performances include ‘RAIN’ APT Gallery,2018 (Solo) ‘Speculative Field Recordings of the Near Future’ Outpost, Norwich 2017 (Solo), ‘Mute Outtakes’, Dyehouse 451 (Solo), London 2017 ‘Early Confessions’ STORE/ASC, London 2014 (Solo), ‘Open Sound’ selcected by Paul Purgas, Outpost, Norwich, 2018, ‘Enter the Dragon’, ICA, London, 2015.

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.
