Week-long music and art exhibition begins at Foodhall on November 2nd
Local art group Egui and NTS resident Ikr. Imprint team up next week for ‘Structure of Suffering’, a week-long exhibition of visceral experiments at Foodhall — expect A/V sound art, live improv ambient, sound collage installations, DJ sets & more. The exhibition will run from 2nd - 8th November.
Ikr. Imprint’s NTS residency focuses on textural, ambient soundscapes - sometimes abrasive and challenging, other times floaty and euphoric, always forward-thinking. They, alongside Egui, were early fixtures at Foodhall and part of the first events hosted there back in 2015, so it’s great to see them both back. There are three main events over the course of the week, and the installations will be open to view throughout, with Foodhall functioning as a pop-up gallery of sorts.
Kicking off on Saturday 2nd November, the launch night will feature a live A/V show from Tatsuru Arai, a DJ set from Off Me Nut affiliate and dark, new school grime producer Droid (whose ‘Neglectful Thoughts’ A/V work will also be on display throughout the week). There’s also a DJ set from hmurd — one half of the Cherche Encore label/night, Tobago Tracks signee and a producer focussing on an amalgamation of forward-thinking club sounds, chopped, screwed up vocal samples and even noisy, unsettling ambient. They’re accompanied by a live set from Thumbsucker and support from Egui DJs.
On Sunday 3rd, The Holons will perform a 12-hour improv drone piece, starting at 11am and building up into ‘gig-mode’ at 8-11pm. The next event is on Wednesday 6th, with Holons member Matt Butt hosting a workshop on the Piezo, a small electronic device that can amplify vibrations and be used to create music
