Looking forward to playing at LUME this Thursday with Deemer, my duo with sound artist Merijn Royaards. We will be sharing the bill with Tom McCredie/Matt Herd duo. The venue is Long White Cloud, 151 Hackney Road, E2 8JL.
Deemer started life in 2006 as a weekly improvisation/electronics session in a warehouse in Hackney Wick. The project has since evolved into an installation/performance based electro-acoustic ‘two-manned’ orchestra, whose aural narratives are created within fluid frameworks that map a trajectory in time, but leave the sonic textures and compositions entirely free and undetermined. Deemer employ, among other things, alto saxophone, drums, analogue electronics, tape, transducer microphones/speakers to instantly compose, activate space, and blur the boundaries between free jazz and sound installation.
