Music concerning itself with location and de-location is the focus for our second event at Texture. VIRTUALLYREALITY teams up with electronic music producer Kid Smpl's net-label and music series DISPLAY (sub-label of the Kastle-helmed Symbols) to bring two new tracks to live fruition. Kid Smpl's Promise Emulation is presented alongside a specially-commissioned live visual from the artist himself, where computer-generated environments constructed in video-game engine Unity pulse & flash in accordance with the original track's inbuilt dynamics and frequencies. Additionally, MICHAELBRAILEY's Intimacy Negator (Feel Me) is re-interpreted live by MICHAELBRAILEY, alongside live electronics and google-earth-gleaned visuals from Idiotbox.
Also featured is Aaron Parker's 51°12’N/0°55’W–280615, performed by Dave Bainbridge, alongside John Cage's seminal 'Radio Music' and a new version of James Saunders' instruments with recordings, all performed by students of the Royal Northern College of Music.
