About the Line Up:

After watching the onset of gentrification filling their previous creative oasis in Berlin, extraordinary duo Danielle de Picciotto (Crime & The City Solution) and Alexander Hacke (Einst├╝rzende Neubauten),have been nomadic since 2010. Giving up their home and most of their possessions, they have been touring the world, performing in Australia, doing residencies in Prague, Canada and Ireland, working in New York and recording in the Mojave Desert.

 On this evening they will present:
  •  music from Danielle's new solo album 'Tacoma', which speaks of leaving everything behind and trusting destiny to lead one's way 
  • their communal album 'Perseverantia', which speaks of the strength and persistence necessary to survive outside of the grid
  • their graphic diary 'We Are Gypsies Now', which tells of how they gradually chose to become nomads.

    Here's a small excerpt of their live performance of 'Perseverantia' in February.

 Thomas Ragsdale is a film composer from Manchester, best known as half of Ghosting Season and worriedaboutsatan, as well as for solo project Winter Son. He has just released his new album 'Bait' in August, via This Is It Forever, to coincide with the screening of Dominic Brunt's film of the same name at Film4 Frightfest. The album started life as a film score to the UK thriller, but rather than just release the various background drones and atmospheres, Ragsdale re-opened the files he'd given Brunt and started to re-imagine the whole thing as one complete album, as opposed to merely a soundtrack. On the night we'll see the fruits of his labours in a multi-media performance.
