On Saturday 1st September I was in Manchester with Freecode to provide visuals for SuperByte. The venue, Antwerp Mansion, was really quite impressive. On the outside it appeared to be an abandoned building, but on the inside it was an outstanding mansion that has been reworked as an entertainment venue.
On Saturday 1st September Freecode will be providing visuals for some of the acts at SyperByte in Manchester
SuperByte is, at it’s core, a day and night of live music from some of the best chiptune and low-tech acts from the UK and beyond including micromusic pioneers Dubmood, Henry Homesweet, Superpowerless, DeadBeatBlast, Chipzel, HarleyLikesMusic and many more
More info, such as full line-up, directions and ticket prices can be found on the FB event invite or their website. It’ll be my last performance/VJ gig as part of Freecode. There may also be cake.
On 13th and 14 Jly I was down in London with two other members of Freecode to perform at The reUNION in Southwark, London. Although there’s a description of the venue on the website, it still pleasantly surprised me upon arrival
A quick read on their website reveals that this site has been used by EXYZT (the people who built The reUNION) several times and has housed an orchard and Lido, amongst other things. Construction started on this project in June 2012 as part of the London Festival of Architecture
The land, prior to construction
Despite being right beneath a railway bridge the space felt very homely and welcoming!
Due to various things the Freecode performance didn’t happen as planned, but myself and Alan did provide visuals for some of the parties in The Washing Machine Club (their cube-shaped club). Thanks to the EXYZT collective for their hospitality!
The reUNION is a new Public House, in the spirit of the 1830 Beer Act in which anyone could apply for a licence and open up their front room to the public, to sell – and even brew – beer from their own home.
It’s all free and will be going on till about 22:30. Directions can be found here, although it’s a 5 minute walk from Southwark or Borough Tube station, so should be easy to find
We’ll be performing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue… It’ll all become clearer on the night 😉 Also performing on that night will be Juneau Brothers and Lash Frenzy. Tickets are £5, check out the event page for more details.
Realtime, generative Audio Visual performance presented in the MAC’s best kept secret – a gem of 1960s architecture – the HEXAGON theatre, originally the Cannon Hill Puppet Theatre. Featuring stunning work from the most experienced and freshest face, alike:
