Gesamtkunstwerk: Basic House
Gesamtkunstwerk aims to bring a new kind of electronic night to the North West with the focus on sonic exploration with music from the experimental, bleeding edges of today’s diverse and genre-defying scene. The night is being co-run by Burnt Offerings together with Salford’s very own spacemen GNOD, who have been delving more and more into their own take on dark electronica recently. There will be a focus on the whole aesthetic of the night, using the work of artists, film makers and others to enhance the atmosphere, making it a unique multi-sensory experience. Expect collapsed outsider electronics, hard-warped machine rhythms and analogue debauchery all reflecting the post-industrial mill space.
The first of what will be a bi-monthly event will feature Basic House, aka Stephen Bishop, who runs the new Middlesborough based Opal Tapes label and is also the lead vocalist of noise sludge gods Drunk in Hell. Opal Tapes have opened up an exciting space for artists working in beat driven electronic music to release more experimental side-project material, as well as drawing in artists from the noise and drone fringes who are making music that’s inherently rhythmic. Also performing on the night will be Gesamkunstwerk residents VULJ and GNOD.
