Bankside Social #2

I'll be sitting on a panel discussion at this event curated by Nick Luscombe (Radio 3 Late Junction). Here are the details:

Following our sold out launch in March, Bankside Social returns on the evening of Tuesday November 18th 2014 at Topolski Gallery & Bar, located in the railway arches two minutes' walk from Waterloo, en route from the station to the South Bank.

As with our first Bankside Social, the lineup for our second outing has come together (and continues to evolve) serendipitously. Which is a fancy way of saying that we follow our noses. This time we're been delving further into the burgeoning electro-acoustic music scene and some of the exciting new artists, performers and even instruments that are emerging around it.

We have an exclusive debut performance from Zufällig, a new band that's emerged from psychedelic electro-rock band Death in Vegas, whose compositions soundtracked numerous advertisements, films and computer games. "Live instrumental electroacoustic music, improvised electronics, textural guitars and treated woodwind."
Listen here:

Riz Maslen aka Neotropic, has been described as one of the most prominent women composers working in experimental electronic music. In addition to her warm electronic programming, her output embraces folk, psychedelic pop and an interest in the darker side of experimental film & photography.
Listen here:

Naomi Kashiwagi is an award-winning artist based in Manchester and has shown work across the UK and internationally. Kashiwagi produces works on paper, installations, performances and sound works that draw upon her cultural heritage, an intrinsic fusion of two cultures, English and Japanese.

The Skoog is a completely new instrument that enables anyone to instantly start playing, making and expressing themselves musically. It's currently making its way from education - where it has enabled musicians who are not able to work with conventional instruments to play and perform - into electronic music making and live performance. We'll have Skoogs played live and hope to create an impromptu Skoog band on the night.
See it in action here:

Ski Oakenfull is a musician, producer and lead online course developer at Point Blank Music School, where he helps train the next generation of electronic dance luminaries. This summer he deconstructed Rob Dougan's classic Clubbed to Death live in front of the Southbank Centre crowd during James Lavelle's Meltdown Festival, a brilliant performance you can see here:

We'll be booking more performers, guests, speakers and panelists in the coming weeks (knowing us, right up to the day before we go live).
