An afternoon exploring the sonic intricacies of garbage featuring the debut of Rubbish Music (Kate Carr + Iain Chambers) and a solo set by Tom White. This event examines the rotting, decaying, disassembled and reimagined rubbish we devour, destroy, discard and repurpose. From the bins of Dalston to the concert stage, join us as we create a soundscape from the area’s least loved materials.
The matinee show will feature four sets: Tom White (solo), Rubbish Music (duo) and two short solos by Iain Chambers and Kate Carr.
Kate Carr is a London-based composer and field recordist whose work uses sound to explore the spaces we create together. She is particularly interested in shared public spaces, and the ways we deploy sound to connect, occupy, immerse and remove ourselves from locations, events and each other. Her live work is centred on objects, chance events and textures.
Carr also runs the label Flaming Pines.
Iain Chambers is a London-based composer and producer whose work explores specific locations and their changing sounds across history, as in his 2017 work The House of Sound, and 2018’s City of Women.
Iain's work is heard live in concerts, radio, sound installations and multimedia. His feature-length symphonies of industrial sounds have been commissioned by BBC Radio 3, WDR, ABC Australia.
In 2019 Iain launched the independent record label Persistence of Sound: a new space for musique concrète, field recordings, and the uncategorizable sounds in between.
In 2003 Iain co-founded Langham Research Centre, an electronic music ensemble using obsolete Cold War era technology to compose new music. The group also create new realisations of 20th century electronic works by composers including John Cage, Alvin Lucier and Christian Wolff, using an unusual analogue instrumentarium.
Tom White is a London-based artist. His multidisciplinary practice spreads across sound, moving image, installation and live performance. Past projects include commissions and appearances for Radiophrenia, Glasgow (CCA); BRAUBLFF (KRAAK & De Player); Whitechapel Gallery, London & Colour out of Space Festival, Brighton. Collaborators include Maya Dunietz, Kieron Piercy, Ben Knight, Stuart Chalmers and most recently in Al Fresco with Lia Mazzari & Sholto Dobie. He has released music through labels such as Takuroku, Glistening Examples, Vitrine, Chocolate Monk, Singing Knives, Calling Cards Publishing and My Dance the Skull. He won the British Composer Award in 2014 (Sonic Art) for Public Address, commissioned by South London Gallery. In 2016 founded Apologies in Advance; a platform for artists presenting work in progress performances.
