Description

COOS - Festival of Experimental Music - it's the first night - tune in and adjust your minds and ears for incredible sounds from

Glands Of External Secretion (USA) + Red Brut (NL) + Robert Ridley-Shackleton (UK) + Wild Rani (UK) + Charles Mitchener Duo (UK) + Ezio Piermattei (IT) + Ash Reid (UK) + Plastic Hooligans (UK) + Duncan Harrison (UK)

Glands of External Secretion
Seymour Glass, inspired by J.D. Salinger's short story ‘A Perfect Day for Bananafish’, began publishing the legendary Bananafish Zine in 1987. Using lo-fi, collage aesthetics, alter egos, international contributors, and his own paranoid and absurd manner of writing, it constituted a huge and ambitious attempt at presenting underground culture in its every form.
At the same time Glass found an audio / performance outlet of his own through Glands of External Secretion’s weird monuments of experimental and far-out studio improv, surreal cut-ups of songs, sounds, Barbara Manning's vocals, voice samples, loops, out-of-context rhythms, field recordings, electronics, manipulated noises and anything else not usually considered music.
The result is a twisted riot of sound bordering on audacity which the term 'extremely psychedelic' fails to completely encapsulate.

Red Brut
Red Brut is the solo work of Marijn Verbiesen, drummer with primitive no-wave trio Sweat Tongue, vocalist and synth player in electronics duo JSCA, and a key force in keeping Rotterdam’s underground scene rolling.
‘Verbiesen’s music is highly personal, subtle and displays an ever curious and searching mind. Found sounds interweave with brutal synth oscillations, melancholic melodies and sensual-absent poetry from the aether. Although rooted in the sinister absurdism of early 2000 experimentalism, her music embraces and redefines the concept of ‘music of the universe’, coined by John Cage, Daphne Oram and alikes.’ KRAAK

Wild Rani
Rebecca Mahay is a visual artist and performer from Birmingham, UK, one half of MIRROR II RORRIM with Heath Moerland (aka Sick Llama). They have releases on the Detroit-based Fagtapes label ('Housewife Hibernation', 'Noom', 'Live WCBN FM Ann Arbor') and their latest 'Womensware' has been released through All Gone records. More recently, Mahay has been performing solo as Wild Rani creating soundscapes with vocals, synth, percussion and field recordings.

Robert Ridley Shackleton
COoS welcomes the cardboard prince - the ceaselessly prolific, endlessly creative, DIY visual artist, performer and musician. 'Tape loop manipulation, 50's rock n'roll chanting buried in swathes of enveloping noise. Pure expression erupts through layers of woozy, backwards pop and unholy reverb. A nose-dive through Suicide + Dirty Beaches' grim electricity but shot with an extra sense of playfulness and an acute melodic sensibility. For those people thrilled by the extreme and in awe of the beautiful.' Resident

Charles Mitchener Duo
For COoS the Charles Mitchener Duo (Elaine Mitchener and Neil Charles), will perform a set of free-improvisations for voice and double bass.

Elaine Mitchener is an experimental vocalist and movement artist whose work melds vocal styles encompassing free-improvisation, contemporary new music, sound art, music theatre and dance. She has worked and performed in a wide variety of contexts with leading artists including Apartment House, Moor Mother Goddess (aka Camae Ayewa), Steve Beresford, Christian Marclay, Phil Minton, Pat Thomas, David Toop and Jason Yarde. She is co-founder of experimental jazz quartet the Hawkins/Mitchener Quartet (with Neil Charles, Stephen Davis and Alex Hawkins).

Double bassist Neil Charles trained classically and is also a busy electronic producer and composer. He regularly performs, records and tours with numerous jazz, classical and contemporary music bands and ensembles like Sun Ra Arkestra, Alex Hawkins, Mingus big band, and has played with Terence Blanchard, black top, Shabaka Hutchings, and China Moses.

Ezio Piermattei
Piermattei is an italian sound artist and self-taught maverick. He’s been active under several aliases – Poisucevamachenille, Autopugno, Hum Of Gnats – before settling down with his given name. Among his releases there’s a collaborative tape with Dan Melchior inspired by Claudio Rocchi’s music.
The melodic vein and rough, crooked Pop sketches of his earlier releases have given way to purer sounds, but retain a playful attitude: tapes played at the wrong speed, brass and string instruments, amplified objects, fragments of non-sense speeches. He has released recordings through Chocolate Monk (UK), My Dance The Skull(UK), Discombobulate(UK) and Staaltape(DE). Piermattei also plays in Triple Heater - a duo with Brighton’s F. Ampism - and runs the label Tutore Burlato
