Welcome to day seven of Unsound 2018!
Our expansive discourse program concludes today, with two artist talks. Andy Battaglia will interview Phill Niblock, the 85-year-old drone legend, while Will Lynch speaks to Olof Dreijer for Resident Advisor’s RA.Exchange series.
ICE will host both afternoon and evening shows. Twenty years after the release of Time Machines, Drew McDowall is performing the music live with a brand new A/V show developed with British visual artist Florence To. Colin Self will follow with the European premiere of Siblings, accompanied by Polish artists Resina, Julia Ziętek and Maria Tomala on strings. Księżyc member Remek Hanaj opens with a show connected to his new album Wysiadywanie góry, featuring a full band with traditional Polish folk singers. Note: this special Saturday afternoon event is not included in the weekly or long weekend pass. A separate ticket must be purchased. Tickets at the door unless sold out.
In the evening, Jlin and Wayne McGregor company - one of the most renowned contemporary dance ensembles in the world - will present the European premiere of Autobiography Edits. This show is a compact, specially produced version of choreographer Wayne McGregor’s dance work Autobiography, inspired by McGregor’s own DNA sequence. To celebrate the release of her original score on Planet Mu, Jlin performs live on stage alongside the dancers. The evening will open with a new show from Italian synth musician Caterina Barbieri, working with visual artist Ruben Spini. Tickets will be available at the door unless sold out.
The last Hotel Forum night includes more shows exploring club music and beyond, with live premieres from Huerco S. presenting his Pendant project, and a debut performance of Amnesia Scanner with their AI member Oracle. The AS WiFI project will be launched during their show, offering a connection with the AI member and a token drop. More A/V projects and adventurous techno will be presented in The Ballroom. The Chandelier Room features premiere European appearances by rising South African star Sho Madjozi, Tanzanian singeli project Sisso - and much more. In The Kitchen, bass, rap, gabber and trance collide. The Secret Lodge opens again, with more experimental music, celebrating the 85th birthday of Phill Niblock with an extended drone concert, and much more. Tickets will be available late at night, at 2.30am. Please note that you might need to wait some time. The event goes until 7.30am.
