Reactor Halls E14: Cables
Saturday 28 February
£3 on the door
A cable is more than a mere length of wire. It is a trail to be followed, tracing a line between two points, or a meshwork of interwoven threads. Rammel Club will present installations, workshops and performances that explore the electronic aspects of auditory arts and collaborative improvisation.
The cable carries the pulse of electricity or light in response to a trigger. Cables are bookended by 'plugs', affording an abundance of possible connections. Some connections will be recommended for you in the user guide. But why stop there? Plug a synthesiser into a television, a hard-drive into an amplifier, a cello into a sat-nav, internally rewiring existing circuits or creating new possibilities for interactions between sounds and their players, recordists and engineers.
Celebrating the humble cable with a range of performers, makers and artists for whom venturing into the electric realms has always been a very natural part of contemporary sound practice.
