Helgi's, 177 Mare St, London E8 3RH

Live performance noise, electronics and chaos synthesis from:

A collaboration between visual/electronic artist and musician Lisa McKendrick (Listen Lisse) and animator and electronic artist Tim Drage (Cementimental). The duo perform wearing costumes and masks in conjunction with live video projections and illuminated props. They deliver a spontaneous and improvised performance using theatrical style interaction with their self-built synths, noise boxes, circuit bent toys and vocals. Their music conjures themes such as paganism, freedom of speech, freedom of sound, intergalactic heroism and a playful interpretation of popular culture.

Polyrhythmic and cacophonic, maximising inputs and failing to harness chaos. PlutonOvarian may also be know for his work as Joel Cahen in Wet Sounds and Scrapclub

Inspired by the lither, more abstract sounds of UK techno labels such as Lost/Cosmic, Continual, Meta and Arcart, UKAEA seeks to combine these elements with rhythmic and structural influences from Indonesian and African musics. Contemporary synthesis and sequencing techniques give the sound its character, rendered by self-built or custom-made obscure hardware. Polyrhythm and polymeter are used continually as a means to disorientate and motivate the listener. Caustic distorted rhythms pummel and lurch; cascading tones interlock and cycle. Sound is made, contorted and destroyed, rather than designed. Live shows are partly- or entirely-improvised, often using mixed media, performance, and setting to recontextualise the sounds and the space.
