Spirit of Gravity

Wed 31 Jul 2013

The Spirit of Gravity is Brighton's longest running electronic & experimental music night and has been providing a space for experimental electronic music since 2001. The evening crams in as much audio visual excitement as we can manage including visuals by Bartosz Dylewski plus the world famous Elektrocreche, an audience play area for musical toys.

Appearing live will be: H.L.Collins, Noteherder & McCloud, The Static Memories, The TR Agency & minimal impact, it'll be a high impact show.


Henry Collins has been tinkering with diverse sonic activities for the last decade leaving a trail of chaos wherever he lays his hat. His work has changed direction after the retirement of his Shitmat guise, with a new project called Misty Conditions taking its place on the Planet Mu roster. In the last year he has abandoned gimmicks for a more serious sound, exploring sound and music to look for something new. For Henry's debut show at Brighton Dome he will perform a live audio visual piece using apparatus and instruments from his recent 'Noise Room' sound installation.

The Static Memories

Dan Powell & Gus Garside have been working together on improv project The Static Memories since 2007. Gus (double bass/electronics) has worked in a variety of musical settings – jazz, contemporary music, pop, cabaret, dance, theatre and, most importantly, improvised music where he has performed with many leading players. Dan (laptop/guitar/sampler/effects) began making sound for installation works in London in the mid 90′s and was involved in live arts group OMSK.

Noteherder & McCloud

Radiophonic Free Jazz, synth noise and soprano sax collide in Geoff Reader and Chris Parfitt's collaboration with AV Artist Bartosz Dylewski. With well received releases on Slightly off Kilter and Exotic Pylon this year, Noteherder & McCloud return to Brighton with a full throttle Audio Visual confabulation.

minimal impact

minimal impact has been resting for a few years, staying in, building new devices. After being talked into helping out with Idiot Drone Farm during the summer he got his taste for live performance back. Glorious and awe inspiring in equal part. I have seen people staggering up the stairs giggling and dribbling after his shows.

The TR Agency

An improvising quartet formed specially for earsthetic, comprising SoG founder and Rimbaud Brother I'm Dr Buoyant (electronics) and 3 of his erstwhile sparring partners: Andrew Greaves (Broken Star, keys), East of Eden saxophonist Ron Caines, and the enigmatic I'll Fitting Suit (improvised spoken word and actions). The performance will draw on visuals by Greaves.

A special CD will be available for anyone interested in getting on the CD revival bandwagon early.
