“Where do we find a point of such realization of a social that it is also the point of its collapse? It’s exactly like the stereophonic effect. We are all obsessed – and not only in music – with high fidelity; obsessed with the quality of musical (re-)production. Armed with the tuners, amplifiers and speakers of our stereo systems we adjust bass and treble, we mix, we combine, we multiply tracks in search of an impeccable technology and an infallible music. Where is the degree of technological sophistication, where is the high-fidelity threshold beyond which music as such would disappear? For the problem of the disappearance of music is the same as that of the disappearance of history. It will not disappear for a want of music. It will disappear for having exceeded that limit point, vanishing point, it will disappear in the perfection of its materiality, in its own special effect beyond which there is no longer any aesthetic judgement or aesthetic pleasure: It is the ecstasy of musicality and its end.”
// DWINDLING & GIBLET GUSSET //
DWINDLING are a free noise duo from Leeds: guitar + drums, skree +
rubble, whiiiine + vibrate, fast + slow (at the same time). One Model
Warship and one Guttersnipe. For this performance they will be debuting
a new collaboration with GIBLET GUSSET aka Kerry Hindmarsh from
Sheffield. Expect keening wails and torpid glossolalia mixed into
Dwindling's cement mixer of rapidfire sound.
A S T R O F A U N is the alter-ego of vocalist/producer Jodi Gunning. She combines lush vocals and soaring harmonies with danceable beats and quirky melodies to create otherworldly electropop. Her lyrics tell stories set in dream worlds real and imagined, inner and outer, past and future.
