Festive Noise Greetings to one and all. Find below embedded videos of all 14 sets completed in this year's inaugural Hogwash Noise Lucky Dip. Eight noise makers entered the arena, only one could be crowned Lord of Synth, and Sadistic Statistic was that noise maker. Enjoy the valiant efforts of all below -
A week ago, eight noiseheads came together to battle for the title of "Lord of Synth" at Chunk in Leeds. Eight entered the arena, one was victorious and that one was Sadistic Statistic. Cameras and audio devices captured the whole couple of hours of fun. Below are the images; the audio and video will be online soon enough :-).
Tuesday just gone saw the welcome return to Leeds of Hogwash. We were very lucky to have the fine artists Stuart Chalmers and Sukitoa o Namau sandwiching the noisy sod Legion of Swine. Some photos were taken, the light was very low as befitted the night, so the quality is not the best shall we say.
Pictured below are the new tape releases from Ojud Records, out this very day! First we have hammar :: ö by Nørthern Pøwerhøuse, which consists of field recordings of industrial sounds on the island of Hammarö in Sweden. Secondly, and keeping the environmental vibe, SKAND's release solnedgång, which is a collection of pieces created by the light of the sunsets over the island and converted into audio.
Dave Procter and Legion of Swine will be in Denmark over the next week. First of all, Legion of Swine will be performing at Northern Noise in Copenhagen on Friday 25th of September - see here for details - https://www.facebook.com/events/1899201800348895/.
The next day Dave Procter will hold a discussion on Performance of Noise Music in Public Space as part of the Amok19C week long festival in Århus - see program here - http://amok19c.dk/prgram/.
Nørthern Pøwerhøuse has been recording industrial sounds across the island of Hammarö south of Karlstad in Sweden. Best described as "ambient, field recording, noise" - the audio can be listened to and downloaded here - https://ojudrecords.bandcamp.com/album/hammar
An update on the Urban Myth project between sound artist Dave Procter and Stockholm-based visual artist Geraldine Hudson. The pair met up in Stockholm recently to collect images and sound around the destruction and construction taking place at Slussen, the main gate between Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea. They plan to develop their ideas for an installation provisionally in January 2018 in Stockholm.
More information will be forthcoming - some images captured lie below -
