Tape Letters from the Waiting Room – album launch at IKLECTIK

I’m excited to share details of an upcoming concert at Iklectik in London next Friday. The event is a launch for my new album on Psyché Tropes, ‘Tape Letters from the Waiting Room’ – as well as a charity fundraising event for homeless people. I’ll be performing a live soundtrack to an extended version of the film by Steve McInerney. There is also a fantastic line up of performances and screenings by some other great artists (full details below).

Records will be on sale on the night – or you can purchase copies either through Bandcamp or direct from me by dropping me an email.

Join us for an evening of wonder and excitement at IKLECTIK for a programme of audiovisual delights, premiering new collaborations and sonic experiments in abstract motion and storytelling with all ticket sales donated to a local homeless charity.

We are very pleased to welcome Glasow-based artist Mark Vernon for the official launch of his new LP soundtrack for the award-winning ‘Tape Letters from the Waiting Room’ directed by Steven McInerney, released on Psyché Tropes.

In sharp contrast to his more recent output, Howlround, who produce work entirely by manipulating naturally occurring sounds on magnetic tape, with all digital or artificial effects strictly forbidden, will unveil a new ambient work in progress using voice and tape only.

Electronic composer Pascal Savy and visual artist Hanzo Schwarz will present for the first time their new collaborative live film Signals inspired by the cosmic horror of H.P Lovecraft and the speculative hypotheses of the black hole era.

Premiering for the first time will be a new expanded audiovisual performance by multimedia artists Ben Kreukniet and Steven McInerney‘s collaborative project IOME. Their piece will use 16mm, digital projection and live electronics to explore the emergent phenomenon of trichromatic perception.

Astral Industries resident DJ Hems will offer a deep dive into fields of experimental, avant garde, far-out jazz and electronics throughout the evening.

The event will be streamed live from IKLECTIK on:
