This event has been and gone.
Electronic Voice Phenomena returns with a series of electrifying live sessions featuring the best in hauntology, spoken word, glitch art and music.
The EVP Sessions takes its inspiration from Konstantin Raudive’s notorious Breakthrough experiments of the 1970s, in which he divined spirit voices from electronic white noise. Each session includes a range of new commissioned work alongside special guests - each performance resonating psychic echoes of technological ruptures and corporeal gasps, peering in at what lies beneath our circuit-boards and screens.
For September’s instalment, mercurial multi-media artist Appau Junior Boakye Yiadom presents a performative video and sound work resonating dub echoes; Sue Tompkins performs pop-inspired word refractions; poet Antosh Wocjik investigates memory loss through spoken glitches and percussive loops; and surrealist performance artist Jennet Thomas performs chaotic linguistic accelerationism. Award-winning poet and spiritualist raconteur Ross Sutherland plays [g]host with a newly commissioned series of Truther-style video works.
Tompkins is a collector of found phrases, words, and lyrics. Through her typed and spoken works she re-presents snatches of material gleaned from the everyday, distorting meaning by metering their arrangement and delivery. Her work combines both vocalised and physical structure and form, transferring aspects of performance such as rhythm, tempo and composition into the gallery via two-dimensional works. Sue was also the vocalist of now defunct indie-rock band Life Without Buildings.
