Russell Haswell – Three Day Residency with Yasunao Tone + Farmers Manual + Bruce Gilbert + Sue Tompkins + Powell + Mark Durgan + more

Jam-packed residency from the pre-eminent exponent of UK noise, Russell Haswell, with three curated days featuring collaborators and contemporaries old and new. A multi-disciplinary artist and sonic polymath, Haswell is a record producer, free improvisor, computer musician, noise aficionado, curator and collaborator, and this residency should run the gamut of all these and more. Haswell will kick off the proceedings with a different solo set at the start of each night.

Russell Haswell

Russell Haswell is a restlessly forward-thinking, multi-disciplinary artist, performer and curator. With a background steeped in computer music, black metal, noise, techno and solo improvisation, his practice is renowned for broaching the extremities of visual and sonic arts. He’s performed in noted live and HDJ [hard disc jockey] actions with Aphex Twin, Gescom, Pan Sonic and Masami Akita (Merzbow), among others, and worked with Florian Hecker on Iannis Xenakis’ UPIC system in their Haswell & Hecker duo, whoseBlackest Ever Black LP is widely considered a milestone of modern electronic music composition—and zweikommasieben Magazin has been a fan ever since.
