Sonorities Presents: Horse Lords with support from Nicola L. Hein + Touch Sensitive DJs

Headline act –Horse Lords

‘An instrumental odyssey from Baltimore quartet Horse Lords: drums, bass, sax, guitar, and percussion fuse together to carve out deep, hypnotic grooves of bold new American rock and roll. Using a just intonation tuning system, the band constructs layers of punching, syncopated phrases that call upon elements of krautrock, African poly-rhythms, and classical minimalism.’

Opening act –Nicola L. Hein – Tertiary Protentions

Tertiary Protentions is Nicola L. Hein’s solo projectworking with artificial intelligence in a solo real-time format. It develops a software agent that is capable of learning the human musicians’ musical gestures and idioms in real-time. The human and the machine musician develop an integrative system of musical materials and agency that integrates different strata of action. The interaction is coined by a form of “cybernetic listening”, the human-machine system’s listening for influx by itself, creating and stimulation a feedback of action between human and machine. This interaction happens in an intelligently acting multichannel environment, harnessing the potentials of autonomous spatialisation. The result is a play between human and machine, utilizing what the great French philosopher of technology Bernard Stiegler would have called “Tertiary Protentions”: The conception of future by the means of technology.

Closing act –Touch Sensitive DJ set

Touch Sensitive is a Belfast-based record label that has beaten an ad-hoc, pan-genre path over nine years with contemporary and archival releases from the likes of David Holmes, Elaine Howley, Natalia Beylis, Vox Populi! and Autumns.

Mark and Tullis will combine forces to create one of Europe’s tallest DJ tag-teams and round out Sonorities 2024 with a mixed bag of leftfield dancefloor jams.
