Unconscious Archives transverses noise core and vision spectacle bringing together expanded cinema and sonic propositions from London and afar.
UA presents this special edition 'Dingo Ate My Brûlée' in honour of the overwhelming brigade of Aussie performers, and our sole French bastion of celluloid light. A reverse invasion, key members from Australia's noise band and label scene swamp our stage to present a new and truly improvised formation, joined by ex-pat Jayson Haebich on home brewed smog and light de-fraction control. Phantom Chips zips up her home made wearable synths and buttons up her power supply to bring you an un-fashion show like no other. And our beacon of light Xavier Quérel of Metamkine fame brings his truly awesome, intimate and bleedingly bright solo expanded cinema show to town. All of this for the first time in London!
XAVIER QUEREL | France
Focusing on performance with light and film, Quérel considers the film projector as an instrument. Applying his experience in improvisation, he has developed idiosyncratic techniques and ingenious manipulations allowing him to play with the spontaneity of a musician. He plays with "La Cellule d'intervention METAMKINE" - film/music performance based on improvisation, with Jérome Noetinger and Christophe Auger.
MAD NEEDLE | Australia
The crème de la crème of the Australian noise-nic beat-nic scene featuring the rather prolific: Michael Donnelly (Sky Needle, 6Majik9, Unwar, Brothers of the Occult Sisterhood); Sarah Byrne (STAG, Screaming Match, Sky Needle, Painkillers); Michael Zulicki (Albert's Basement, Mad Nanna, Mole House); Pat O'Brien (Mad Nanna, A Band Called Life, O'Tomorrow, sunshine & Grease); Glen Schenau(Per Purpose, Sky Needle); Alex Cuffe (No Fuckwitz, New Low, Sky Needle); Joel Stern (Sky Needle, Greg Boring, Abject Leader, Soft Power, OtherFilm); Daniel Jenatsch (No Fuckwitz, Sky Needle, Matthew Barney).
PHANTOM CHIPS | Brisbane-Bristol
Phantom chips aka Tara Pattenden is a multimedia artist working with analog electronics, field recordings and soft circuitry. She plays homemade tape manipulators and lunetta style electronics. Her work explores tactile interaction with a particular interest in creating clumsy and awkward interfaces. She makes other worldly monsters embedding them with sonic devices to create wearable, tactile sound machines. Watch this girl, wear her electric clothes.
JAYSON HAEBICH | Melbourne
Jayson Haebich uses his skills as a computer programmer to create diverse and innovative works ranging from light sculptures, digital artworks, club visuals, site specific installations, data visualisations, film clips and much more.
