Playing at Shunt London tonight!



Surreal Nightmares at Shunt

Shunt poster

A weekend of Surreal Nightmares made flesh in performance, installation, photography and music. Shunt, Londons most unique and exciting arts venue and bar, plays host to the extreme, the macabre and the perverse for two nights only.

The concept is to turn The Machine (a three tiered performance space and relic of the industrial revolution) into a fabric of nightmare episodes; all generated by the unconscious mind of one deprave...d indivual (cast as the appalling Robert Spragg).

This figure sleeps on soiled sheets and tosses and turns in a polluted swimming pool dreamscape. He has been given these nightmares by the excessive consumption of tinned ‘all day breakfast’- referencing the seminal piece All Day Breakfast by Richard Crow (Performing a new piece in the Bank space).

Over the course of the weekend a number of 2D works,performances, films and installations will be shown over the Shunt space incorporating the fabric of the machine into the one immersive installation that is The Surreal Nightmare.

Curated by Robin Spalding Thanks to Robert Spragg

FRIDAY 19th November- 9.30-1.30am Free Entry

SATURDAY 20th November- 8.30-1.30am £5 Entry

Gluerooms



I have the pleasure of being a part of the mighty DJ Tendraw's GLUEROOM's resurrection. Although I'm not really doing Gabber...

Exciting!

///////////////////

The Gluerooms is a non-profit DIY live art and experimental music event founded in 2003 by DJ Tendraw, one half of the circuit bent free noise duo DJ Tendraw & The Gypsies Dog. Described as 'A New Cross sensation for the diary of all local art phreeks, noise geeks and the dangerously NOW' The Gluerooms has consistently provided a platform for some of the most edgy and daring of artists from around the globe.

Line up:

LES CROUTON J...ONEZ DER WARST ROBRT CURGENVEN

DJ's:

TENDRAW POSSIBLY SICK TINY DANCING BUMP & GRIND WILL TROOP

Hosted by GRACEGRACE (aka Psykat from Team Plastique)

Doors: 8pm - 1am Entry: £4 - £3 b4 9pm/Cons

LES CROUTON JONEZ

Less Croûton Jonez, the handiwork of Bjorn Hatleskog & Darryl Biggs is an occult themed noise project. Located somewhere between musical performance & art installation, based around electromagnetic interference, manipulated by Voltage switching miniature turntables, also includes musical toilet seats & a DIY light show.

ROBRT CURGENVEN

Suffuses immense fields of constantly shifting sound with an elegant tactility and mesmerizing detail. His compelling work spans immersive resonances created with turntables and custom-made vinyl, instrumental harmonics and guitar feedback to carefully detailed field recordings from remote areas in which he lived for many years.

DER WARST

Classic 8-bit Circuitbent gabber

SPORAX



Michael, my squatmate, in some random discussion came up with the word "Sporax". I thought it was a lovely word, so I entered it into google to see if something called "Sporax" actually exists.

Here's the unbelievably specialised information it came up with (taken from http://www.heavymachineryinfo.com):

Sporax Applicator for Feller-Bunchers

Annosum root rot affects conifers throughout the Northern Hemisphere, leading to root rot, windthrow, and ultimately, the death of infected trees.

The fungus Heterobasidion annosum causes annosum root rot. The fungus colonizes readily on freshly cut stumps. Partially cut stands have a high risk of infestation because the fungus can colonize on each of the stumps, potentially leading to the loss of many residual trees.

Wind and rain carry the annosum spores. Spores that land on freshly cut stumps grow down the stump's root system, where they can infect living trees through root grafts or root contacts.

Once annosum becomes established, it can remain active for many years in the South and for several decades in the North. In the South, the hazard rating for annosum root rot is based on soil type. We conducted our preliminary tests at the Department of Energy's Savannah River Site in South Carolina. Stands of conifers on sandy, well-drained soils there are classified as high hazard.

The primary method of controlling annosum in partially cut stands is by applying Sporax to the stump immediately after cutting. Sporax is a commercial powdered formulation of borax. Its primary active ingredient is boron. USDA Forest Service engineers have devised an applicator system that attaches to a feller-buncher, allowing the operator to treat the stump immediately after the tree has been cut.

The applicator uses an air compressor located behind the feller-buncher's cab. A hopper holds the Sporax. A mechanism in the hopper controls the amount of powder being applied. Compressed air delivers the Sporax powder to a nozzle behind the cutting head.

The modular design allows timber purchasers to adapt the applicator to virtually any feller-buncher. During timber harvest, the operator cuts the tree, positions the nozzle of the applicator over the stump and activates the system, applying Sporax to the tree stump.

Results:

The system was tested in September 1997 on a 9-acre tract and again in May 1998 on a 29-acre tract. After treatment with borax, stumps retained enough boron to prevent annosum root rot.

?????????????????????????????????

Also, there's Sporax: the Game

Dissertation



Just handed in my dissertation. It's not pretty and there's a bit missing, but it's about the right length and I am FREE now, FREE AT LAST.

Such a good feeling!

If I wasn't as tired as I am I would do something.

Loosing things...



...and finding them a few days later under a huge pile of stuff in an absolutely unreasonable place ist so 'ne Sache.

I had a wonderful gig in Hackney Wick last monday and about a day later, I realized my Dingoo 320 cheap chinese handheld with shitloads of un-backupped Songs'n'stuff was nowhere to be found. I called up the people from the place, got them to look around there only to come up with nothing.

Now, five minutes ago, I found it in a Box full of hairdriers which is standing in my studio. Did I put it in there? And if so, why?
