Two Days of Indigenous Electronic Music
Our associated artist Zoë Mc Pherson throws a mini-festival.
A hybrid future folk music program with mesmerising polyrhythms, instrumental electronics, noise and vocals. Sounds from the earth and otherworldly journeys.
DAY 1 - Fri 20 Oct - at 21:00
@ GOLDEN ROOM - be on time!
STRING FIGURES premiere
A transmedia project in 7 chapters merging organic and electronic worlds, folk with the global internet. An indigenous of a future.
Taking inspiration from the continuous weaving of Cat's-Cradle, Zoë Mc Pherson makes tactile meditations associated with a certain twist of the string. Each chapter explores a symbolic axis around which liminal transformations occur. From the unknotting of the opening to the final transmission, the movements of String Figures coil around a sonic memory.
With Falk Schrauwen (percussion), Alessandra Leone (live visuals), Hen Lovely Bird & Tomoko Nakasato (performance), Raki Fernandez (costumes) and Zoë Mc Pherson (electronics, voice).

ELIZA BENNETT - A Woman's Work Is Never Done (2014)
We support the further development French-Northern Irish multi-talent Zoë Mc Pherson (b. 1990). Her compositions are the result of her anthropological take on current day electronica. She researches tribes and rituals around the world, uses field recordings to contaminate an otherwise trance hypnotic beat driven music she calls "indigenous electronic music".
