Submerge Nights 2: Tactile Sound (Rian Treanor, Nguyễn + Transitory, Graham Dunning, AJA)

Loco Klub / Mar 09 - 11:00PM

Deep in the warm surrounds of the Loco Klub, artists from around the globe demonstrate a playful approach to noise-making using handmade instruments, mechanical dance machines, wild costumes and custom electronics.

RIAN TREANOR
Rian Treanor is an artist and producer based in the North of the UK. His sound practice re-imagines the intersection of club culture, experimental art and computer music, presenting an insightful and compelling musical world of interlocking and fractured components. Drawing upon his study with Lupo at Berlin’s Dubplates & Mastering, plus years spent curating the Enjoy artspace in Leeds, Treanor’s sound uses off centred rhythmic arrangements, referencing the dynamics of garage and techno as much as Fluxus and Dada cut-ups.

AJA
Noise artist AJA stages some of the most captivating and confrontational performances in the electronic music underground, inviting a reciprocative catharsis between her and the audience. The sonic density in her work borders on the psychedelic, as deep drones are ripped apart by arrhythmic percussion; all the while her stage presence, a mess of fluorescent paint and exposed flesh, create an overwhelming experience. Aggressive but inclusive, AJA “seems intent on destroying all boundaries between herself and the audience….” (Noisey)

GRAHAM DUNNING
Graham Dunning is self-taught as an artist and musician having studied neither discipline academically. His live work explores sound as texture, timbre and something tactile, drawing on bedroom production, tinkering and recycling found objects. His Mechanical Techno project is a kinetic celebration of electronic music, which uses stacks of revolving vinyl records to trigger synths and samples. The overall impression is that of a chaotic intimacy rarely found in software-based dance music.

NGUYỄN + TRANSITORY
Nguyễn + Transitory is composed of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory. Their work crosses disciplines of sound, performance, and installation. Together, the two attempt to approach sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm, and performance from a postcolonial lens. Their practice also involves efforts to empirically learn more about various Southeast Asian+ diaspora queer existences and histories. Currently, they are in the process of developing the immersive site-specific installation sound performance, Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing, initially developed at HAU Berlin.
