Touch Records: Featuring Biosphere, B.J. Nilsen & Chris Watson

Sat 27 Oct 7.30pm

£10.00 Advance/£12.00 Door

From Touch label (Fennesz, Ryoji Ikeda), an evening of deep listening from three artists

who harness nature through technology. Operating from his base in Tromso, 400 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Biosphere has created a wealth of techno, ambient and soundscaped albums over the past two decades. Widely regarded as one of Norwegian electronic music’s most important artists, his feel for texture and place is remarkable. Storm is a collaborative project between sound recordists Chris Watson (UK) and B.J. Nilsen (Sweden). Stationed on their respective coastlines, they have captured the development of storm fronts across the North Sea and Scandinavia. Using 5.1 surround sound, the performance recreates the rhythms and music created when the elements combine over land and sea.

Part of Touch’s 25th Anniversary celebrations presented in association with Qu Junktions.
