Ecstatic Material ft Beatrice Dillon & Keith Harrison

Date:Tue 12 Feb
Time:Doors 7pm. Music starts 8pm.
Venue:J1
Price:£9 adv

Ecstatic Material is a dynamic sound sculpture made and performed by electronic musician Beatrice Dillon and visual artist Keith Harrison in a brand new collaboration. It is a bright and multicoloured artwork using soft materials (like playdoh) and coloured light with live electronic sound via a surround sound system. Created and operated by the artists within the performance space, audiences will literally see and hear the artwork come alive.

Support DJs Copper Sounds play records and objects made from copper and ceramic materials. They will also lead a workshop where participants can design and cast their own wax 7” record and take it home with them.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Beatrice Dillon is a London based musician, producer and artist who presents a monthly show on NTS, and has released music on a variety of record labels, performed at notable European festivals and art spaces like Mutek and the Barbican, and has collaborated widely with award winning visual artists for film, installation and performance.

Keith Harrison is an established artist particularly known for his work with ceramics, public experiments and the transformation of raw materials to unpredictable effect. Harrison’s work shows an awareness of social issues: the relation with audience; the value of physical things; references to popular music and social housing. 

Copper Sounds are a Bristol based duo who are pushing the conventional DJ set by juggling four turntables and using raw materials to manipulate the otherwise dormant sounds of their varied record collection. Their set promises to be loud, hypnotic and abundant with raw dancefloor energy.

Ecstatic Material is the fourth in the OUTLANDS series.

“Over the decade of the The Quietus’ existence we’ve seen the infrastructure around live music in the UK change beyond all recognition (...) All of us at The Quietus are therefore very excited to see how Outlands develops over the coming years.”

Luke Turner, The Quietus

“Projects like these act as the first line of resistance against a potentially myopic, monoculture and should be supported.” Drowned in Sound
