Event description
'State of Independents' is a new series at the House of St Barnabas celebrating the impact of Independent Labels on the world of music.

About this event

Lo Recordings, a label that for over 25 years have been carefully curating music across the spectrum. Their output reaches across and beyond the electronic music world to include jazz, rock and avant-garde. Aphex Twin, Grimes, Susumu Yokota, Luke Vibert, David Toop, Fischerspooner, Blur, Ed Macfarlane, Thurston Moore and Squarepusher are amongst the long list of names that adorn their back catalogue.

Label owners Jon Tye and Gavin O’Shea have witnessed the ebb and flow of an art form in constant mutation. With over 200 releases on their label Lo Recordings together with award winning Norwegian/US based design team Non-Format tell an unfolding story of alternative music since the mid-90s.

LIVE:

-SEAMING TO (LIVE)

Composer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer born in London and comes from a family of concert pianists. Seaming To has been described as ‘the voice of a 21st Century’ (Radio1), and an artist that is truly ‘avant garde’ (Robert Wyatt). Her experimental ethos and mastery across a variety of instruments has enabled her to collaborate with some of the most respected and radical artists of this decade in electronic, classical and experimental genres.

· AMINE & LABELLE (LIVE)

Dynamic dream pop duo Private Agenda will be performing a special new live set to celebrate the release of their stunning new album ‘A Mannequin.’

Following on from the widely acclaimed ‘Ile De Reve’, ‘A Mannequin’ sets a new high with it’s gleaming pop sheen and sinuous grooves. Also playing live will be the illustrious Amine and Labelle. Their debut album ‘African Prayers’ features exquisite percussive & rhythmic interpretations inspired by the Lila Ritual Music of the Moroccan Gnawa Masters. North African infused modern classical for electronic instruments and prepared piano via Berlin & Réunion.
