Event description

Description

You’re invited to join us at The Victoria (Dalston) for the launch of Tape Works Vol. 1, the new experimental electronic album from Langham Research Centre, a collection of BBC Radio 3 producers who came together around a shared passion for rare and obsolete analogue technology and the creative possibilities these machines offer.

Tape Works Vol. 1 takes you on a journey to discover how recent text-based works and live electronics can be interspersed with earlier tape pieces and is performed using live tape manipulation. The album is made up of two long-form works: Muffled Ciphers and The Dark Tower, inspired by JG Ballard’s most experimental novel 'The Atrocity Exhibition' and the life and work of the scientific genius Nicola Tesla.

The night will also feature live performances from special guests and DJ sets by Gabriel Prokofiev. Locally sourced beer and food will be on offer as usual.

Tickets £5 (students) / £8 (advance) / £10 (on the door)

Langham Research Centre came together in 2003 with an interest in manipulating sound on tape and in focusing on one sound source. They follow in the footsteps of early music groups, working with obsolete equipment such as tape recorders, gramophone cartridges and since wave oscillators, to perform authentic versions of 20th century classical electronic repertoire by John Cage, Alvin Lucier and others. Their new album focuses on this instrumentation and includes a range of works from early ‘musique concrete’ miniatures to recent modular works.
