Bit short notice but tomorrow night is the fourth in the now-almost-veteran series of DIY noise and hacked-up electronics, Beyond Signal. Expect devastating volumes of digital viscera in the makeshift surrounds of Area 10 Project Space.

Lineup:

J MILO TAYLOR (real time A/V 3D)

DAWN SCARFE & MEL GOUGH (live radio tuning and resonant soundscape)

JOHN RICHARDS (Diy electronics & power noise)

MARIE VERRY (A/V punk noise)

SZ,BERLIN (Extreme industrial electronic music)

THENOISER aka JULIEN OTTAVI (audio freak & oscillators battle)

RYAN JORDAN / LUKE JORDAN / PATRICK TRESSET (Diy electronics, home built instruments and python)

ODDSCENE & MAGMA (ICED video noise installation)

Our tip is the Jordan/Jordan/Tresset combo, featuring ritualistic strobe fx, light sensors, and generative visuals driven by live facial recognition software. Bring earplugs.

noise=noise: Mind Body Brain at Goldsmiths, Weds 21 January

Following on from this morass of impending south London events, there's another gig at Goldsmiths next Wednesday featuring some of the talented researchers around the computational studio arts arena: noise=noise: Mind Body Brain will be "exploring noise (music) through research into new interfaces for musical expression and perceptions of noise".

It features such luminaries as Disinformation (who was kind enough to appear at our Escape July 2008 event), Mick Grierson (who does stunning A/V performances controlled by physical cognitive processes, pictured above), Ryan Jordan (melding an array of sensors into an immersive, ritualistic performance) and more.
