Crater Lake Festival
Long running solo project of Newcastle based artist Lee Stokoe. In addition to playing bass for Skullflower he runs the firmly tape only DIY label Matching Head releasing the best in under the radar experimental sounds from the UK and beyond. His work as Culver often consists of dense and ominous drones, always executed with great skill and care.
Stephen Cornford's current artistic practice stems from an abiding fascination with consumer audio electronics: how these devices that we are sold to consume music increasingly frame our engagement with the auditory world at large. Reconfiguring these media from the inside, re-imagining their functionality, defying their obsolescence and searching for their intrinsic poetry become strategies with which to challenge normative use, social conformity and the myth of technological progress.
Solo project of Newcastle resident Jerome Smith. He impressed everyone at Tusk festival last year opening the Saturday with a beautifully executed set of Heldon-esque prog workouts laden with pulsating synth swells and very effective guitar lines.
Dylan Nyoukis & Kieron Piercy
Duo set between Brighton based tape/voice mangling veteran Dylan Nyoukis of Prick Decay, Blood Stereo, and head honcho of the Chocolate Monk label and Colour Out Of Space Festival and Kieron Piercy of experimental trio Spoils & Relics, who have performed internationally and had releases on labels such as Harbinger Sound, Porta and Second Sleep.
Born, raised and current of London (south).
Project of Nottingham resident Benjamin Hallatt, exploring minimal yet highly disciplined and detailed analogue textures. Tape music so fragile and delicate it feels like it could fall apart any second but instead ventures constantly into fascinating new terrain. His Summit Tapes release on Strange Rules last year was a highlight release of 2014 for me. Shades of artists like Chop Shop and Small Cruel Party peak through at times but he is a singular new voice.
Bristol based cassette tape manipulator and electronics improviser. Once active with the Oxford and Cheltenham Improvisers collectives.
Hullensian scrape and shout man Yol joins forces with Newcastle based dictaphone gurgler Joe Murray AKA Posset.
In a ten year musical career Melanie Delaney (a.k.a. O’Dubhshlaine) has performed and composed music based in the noise, improvised, experimental and psychedelic rock genres.
Entry is £5.
This event is supported by Arts Council England

Greenpeace film night: 'Black Ice'
Black Ice - the story of the Arctic 30
When the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise set sail to protest the first ever oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, none of the people on board could have known what was coming.
Seized at gunpoint by Russian special forces, the ‘Arctic 30’ were thrust into headlines all over the world, facing up to 15 years in prison and finding themselves at the centre of a bitter international dispute.
A similar protest the previous year at the same oil platform had seen the Greenpeace activists walk away untouched. This time, the events that unfolded sent shockwaves across the world.
With the eyes of the world upon them, Russia charged the crew, from 18 different countries, with piracy and hooliganism in the most ruthless response from a national government against an NGO in a quarter of a century.
Their imprisonment, which saw worldwide media cast the Arctic 30 in the same mould as political prisoners like Pussy Riot and Mikhail Khodorkovsky, lasted months. However, their resolve to try and stop oil drilling in the Arctic was never broken.
Complete with never-before-seen footage and behind-the-scenes access, ‘Black Ice’ tells the story of the Arctic 30 from the moment they set sail to protest at the controversial Prirazlomnaya oil platform, to their arrest, imprisonment… and what happened next.
