Meat on the Bones

OK, doing my best to post more regularly, in between bouts of gig curation and promotion, soldering up our new lighting rig, teaching people how to DJ and dealing with the heatwave. Now the sun has returned to its default British Summer settings, I’m managing to catch up on things a bit…

So, most pressingly and most excitingly, temp0rary have been asked to perform at the Cheltenham Music Festival, and our show will be all about getting interactive with the audience, showcasing the work we’ve done in the last 7 years – here’s the press release:

temp0rary with support from Diessa
8.30pm Thursday 6th July, Chapel Arts, Cheltenham

Lee Chaos and Adrian Giddings perform and create as temp0rary – a live A/V project that operates on the outer edges of the fields of improvised electronic music & visuals incorporating audience participation, theatre, circuit bending, multi-screen projections, hand-built synthesisers and hacked consumer goods. Previous temp0rary performances have taken place at diverse locations from Latitude and Boomtown music festivals, to restored underground nuclear bunkers and abandoned police stations.

For this performance, temp0rary will be presenting a selection of pieces from their career that have been remodelled to demonstrate their fascination with audience participation and accesible technologies. Those in attendance will be able to not only watch the performance but interact and collaborate with the artists via a range of handmade, hacked and modified equipment, making music from touch, light, breath, movement and brain activity for a truly interactive experience.

Support comes from upcoming downtempo ambient electronica act Diessa.

Then there’s these two events which I’m looking forward to very much:
