THURSDAY FEB 23
OPENING NIGHT SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL
Live performances by Emptyset (AV performance), Violence, Aïsha Devi (AV performance) and JK Flesh.
00:00 Emptyset (UK) is the innovative electronic duo consisting of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. The pair shares a history in Bristol’s underground music scene as well as an impressive list of production credits. Emptyset’s work is an exploration of the relationship between rhythm, texture and space.
01:00 Violence (US) is a multiinstrumentalist. Olin Caprison composes, produces, and performs all of Violence's output, which is known for its complexity; shifting between and combining multiple styles of music in single songs.
02:00 Aïsha Devi (CH) emerged in 2013 with the EP Aura 4 Everyone on her own anctuary-label Danse Noire. This was followed by Hakken Dub/Throat Dub alongside EPs from boundary-blurring artists Vaghe Stelle and El Mahdy Jr.
03:00 JK Flesh (US) began by recording his fi rst — and last — record with Napalm Death at the age of 15. He went on to form pioneering industrial metal group Godflesh.Tickets €10 (€7,50 for students, CJP) are on sale now.
