INDUSTRIAL HORIZONS: ENRICO CONIGLIO & NICOLA DI CROCE + KATE CARR + DAVID VELÉZ
Three performances investigating industrial spaces in Venice, London and Yorkshire
MONDAY 21 JANUARY 2019, 7.30PM
Enrico Coniglio & Nicola Di Croce will headline the night with their performance “Mergariam”, a sonic journey into the industrial area of Porto Marghera, one of the biggest chemical industries in Europe, located within the Venice lagoon. The performance is the result of a commissioned sound installation celebrating the 100 years anniversary of the industry. The album Mergariam will be launched on the night via the label Flaming Pines!
Kate Carr presents a piece dedicated to the London Loop walking track which takes in recycling plants, car wreckers, and industrial storage plants alongside migratory bird reserves, temporary ponds and abandoned rusted machinery.
David Veléz offers a depiction of post industrial Yorkshire soundscapes where abandoned factories and obsolete machinery work as quiet reminders of the abrasive sonorities and clanking noises that once fuelled Northern England’s industrial splendour. The performance will make use of garbage and found objects as percussive devices.
