20130511 Editions Mego @ De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea
For almost 20 years the Austrian based Editions Mego label (initially Mego) has been at the forefront of radical electronic music, carving out new forms on an unfathomably regular basis. A solid historical grounding along with the vision of a new utopia has seen an endless stream of innovation amongst it's countless releases over the past two decades. Incorporating numerous genres and movements that have appeared over the decades including electroacoustic, musique concrete, industrial, noise and techno along with the now patented 'extreme computer music' Editions Mego has never been one to rest on it's laurel's continually exploring the multifarious threads of past, present and potential future (s) of electronic music.
20130511 Editions Mego is the largest live assemblage of the Editions Mego aesthetic to date. Presented at the astonishing De La Warr Pavilion, one of the first major modernist buildings in Britian (built in 1935) this is an event that will showcase generations of electronic practice whilst remaining reliably restless amongst any quantifiable form.
The GRM room
Having taken the noble task of re-issuing the holy grail of the 20th Century abstract electronic canon from the archives of the legendary French electronic studios, the INA-GRM, there will be a room dedicated to the GRM with 'surround sound' presentations of works both historical and contemporary. Legendary works by the French scientists/poets/maniacs will be represented with diffusions of works by Luc Ferrari and Bernard Parmegiani. Another 'diffusion' will be the premiere of a new work by Hecker who has, in the years since his initial works on Mego, established himself in multiple disciplines including computer music, psychoacoustics, installation art, philosophy and radical mathematics (often within the same work). Kassel Jaeger will represent the GRM in it's latest incarnation being a sound engineer who also makes complex works of unsettling beauty. Robert Hampson has worked with the GRM having had the piece 'Répercussions' commissioned for playback on the Acousmonium speaker system in 2011. Both Jaeger and Hampson will present their works in person.
The Live Room
The Live Room will play host to all manner of sonic exploration. Ranging from classic Editions Mego brethren such as the multi-disciplined Russell Haswell who will perform a fierce sensory shifting audio/visual set and the original abstract/melodic master Fennesz who returns to the home that unleashed him upon an unsuspecting world so many moon ago. New additions to the roster will make a showcase of their talents including Austrian audio/visual artist Billy Roisz and legendary ambient producer Mark Van Hoen performing under his Locust guise. The absolute master of exquisite chaos, Kevin Drumm is destined to be an event unto itself as is an appearance from the most dedicated grand master of the UK underground Mr Bruce Gilbert. Finally, post techno's most lucid practitioner, Mark Fell will assure an evening of unforgettable sonic arsenal with his unique take on theory, chaos and reconstructed rave gestures.
The night will consist of 2 rooms of the ultimate exploratory, up to the minute electronic music and dj's in the bar: Mat Steel
