Preston Jam Music Festival: Danny Saul / Kinder Meccano / Third City
Fri 31 March 2017, 19:30 – 23:30 BST
Preston Jam presents an evening of mind-bending electroacoustic music with Danny Saul, Kinder Meccano and Third City.
Danny Saul is an experimental musician, performer and composer from Manchester, UK. Recently awarded a PhD in electroacoustic composition from the University of Manchester, Danny works within areas of electroacoustic composition and laptop performance. His works have been performed internationally including performance at the NYC Electroacoustic Festival 2014, the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2013 and the International Computer Music Conference 2014 in Athens. He has toured throughout the UK, Europe, USA and Japan. He runs the experimental label White Box Recordings, and has to date released two solo albums, “Harsh, Final.” (White Box, 2009), and “Kinison – Goldthwait” (Hibernate Recordings, 2010).
Kinder Meccano is Vitalija Glovackyte (LT) and Michael Cutting (UK). Fusing instruments and objects, tape recorders and synthesisers, Kinder Meccano give immersive performances somewhere between noise, deconstructed pop, vintage arcade game sounds, and analogue re-imaginings of Japanese glitch music.
“a world of hidden machine music, amplified by homemade pick-ups, shining 16-bit threads of melody and zen-like process music, mingling performance and playfulness.” - The Skinny
Third City (Jon Aveyard and Dan Wilkinson) formed from the embers of an intended one-off electroacoustic improv show in Preston. Combining samples and the processing of live audio using sound sources such as voice, violin, keyboard, hand drum, tuned percussion and found sound objects, the group present improvisations that use prepared structures yet retain the precariousness of free improv.
Preston Jam is a brand new music festival curated by the University of Central Lancashire in partnership with the Ribble Valley Jazz Festival. The festival will be delving into jazz, exploring all its diverse forms from rap to hip-hop to electronica. Whether you are part of a band or just passionate about music, come along and experience the feeling of freedom music can create by exploring the different styles and genres that the 21st century has to offer.
The festival will run from Saturday 25 March to Saturday 1 April, with a variety of musical and academic events including community events, seminars and gigs with an opportunity to get involved in the local music scene.
