RESIST is back with our second [club/art hybrid] immersive electronic music and visual art event, installed by artist Helena Hamilton under commission by Sound and Music as a “Composer-Curator”. #composercurator
We present an Ireland debut, Aïsha emerged in 2013 with her own label Danse Noire, which is dedicated to exploring abstracted club structures, and Devi’s own music mines her Nepalese-Tibetan heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. Whether they are guttural or soprano, Devi’s warped pop mantras instruct us to find the unseen through a tense, visceral musical landscape that is often gnarled and industrial as it is danceable. Her debut LP ‘Of Matter And Spirit’, was released October 2015 via Houndstooth and followed by March 2016′s lauded remix EP and video game by Emile Barret. Her live collaboration with Beijing artist Tianzhuo Chen (the artist behind her ‘Mazdâ video) and his collective Asian Dope Boys was debuted during CTM 2016 at Berghain and is currently touring Europe. She breaks this tour especially to join us in Belfast and we are thoroughly excited!
Belfast’s own Bloom join us on the decks. Bloom has released on label Crazylegs, and remixed for the likes of Björk and don’t forget to check out his unforgettable Boiler Room here!
Audiovisual liveset from electronic duo Kandehha (visual / sound artist Helena Hamilton + electronic musician Koichi). Catch them live ahead of an exciting release announcement for their debut album!
Collate resident Celestian opens up the night with his characteristic ambience and journey into hypnosis from the sonically intelligent and stylised selector and producer.
