The next Outlands tour, which starts tomorrow 7 February at KARST in Plymouth, features Ecstatic Material with support from Copper Sound DJs.
Working at the intersection of sculpture, music and technology, musician and producer Beatrice Dillon and artist Keith Harrison have been working as Ecstatic Material and taking their speaker system installation around the country, making sound waves visible by pumping noise through various substances.
As part of the Outlands national experimental music touring network, the show is “conducted through a modular system made up of malleable materials, light, and multi-channel audio which is constructed, choreographed and diffused by the artists into the space”.
It promises to be a spectacular and messy show, with all manner of goo being flung around by Dillon’s electronic music pumping through the speakers which are integrated horizontally into the crate structures.
Also along for the ride are DJs Copper Sounds who will be spinning copper dubplates, ceramic pots, Icelandic rocks, and self-pressed locked grooves. They will also lead daytime workshops, where participants can make their own playable wax seven-inch.
