SAM MITCHELL, QUIP, MATTROBSON
January 26 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pmfree
We finally return to the comforting environs of Wharf Chambers, to provide you with the best from the electronic underbelly of Leeds at incredibly low, low prices…
Sam Mitchell is a Leeds based composer who works with analogue and digital electronics, generative music and found sound. He has worked with music for film, dance and acousmatic diffusion.
For this show, he’ll be performing a selection of works from the last ten years or so, using a small modular setup and laptop. Expect a range of music from chaotic granular sounds, to electroacoustic drones, and a couple of more rhythmic pieces.
Can we call Ben Eyes (aka Quip) a renaissance man of the digital arts? When he is not working on Arduino multimedia art projects in Scandinavia or providing live sound production for Nihiloxica on their recent UK tour, Ben can usually be found creating a range of varied works in his studio in York that encompass a broad range of electronic music styles.
A stalwart of our nights, Ben always produces the goods, and his practice falls somewhere between, but often at either end, of experimental and electro/techno, with plenty of electronica flourishes thrown in for good measure.
Our hapless host, Matt Robson, demonstrates that having a complete and total lack of talent in the field of music production isn’t something that will necessarily be mitigated by dogged perseverance; as yet again he churns out more of his plebeian attempts at a sort of mawkish post-aphex prog-electronica.
Expect the usual drivel from the much maligned “digital saccharine” genre
