Lost Property, an arts collective based in Brighton, present a building takeover of the DLWP.
Making full use of the building’s acoustics and architecture, this free event will feature live performances and site specific installation pieces from artists who are continually forming new ways of presenting audible art.

Hákarl is the solo project of Kev Nickells. Musician/writer/moaner – professionally does something or other to do with computers. Interested in exceptionally long gigs (viz, disestablishing material-fetish music). Hired improv gun. Somewhere in the region of Schnittke/Ayler. Easily wound-up, which doesn’t necessarily make his time-keeping any good.
PLASTIC CONTAINERS OF NOTHING
Each performance by Duncan Harrison and Emu is different. The last saw them shovelling spaghetti into Duncan’s body and amplifying its journey through him, so at this point we can only say that is something that won’t be happening.
DANIEL W J MACKENZIE
Daniel Mackenzie is an audio and visual artist working in a variety of disciplines, most known as a musician under the alias Ekca Liena. Under his own name, Daniel works with modern and conceptual composition, as well as sound art and installations. Daniel is also involved in curating music, art and film as an individual and as a founding member of arts collective Lost Property, and writes music reviews and features for publications including Fluid Radio, Bad Acid, The London Economic and Willow Wood.
Equa Dentata is a solo project of Eddie Nuttall, a London-based artist. Working primarily with electronic and acoustic devices, Nuttall creates a dense tapestry of hypnotic drones and surreal textures, employing a refined and considered approach within a DIY framework.
A review of his recent show in Brighton says “… constantly developing stasis of highly detailed drones. Without anything obviously changing he keeps us mesmerised with shifts of stereo balance, tonality, timbre. The bass is full and the top end hits several sweet spots I never knew existed in my tinnitus ranges. Gorgeously wafting out with the gentle wash of Eddie bowing a flying saucer.”
I am currently on strike from writing awkward bios in the first, second, third or any other person. If you would like me to write a bio I will do so for the sum of £50, paid up front and on demand, preferably in cash. If not you may write your own bio describing what it is you think I am. In the name of generosity I give you permission to write whatever you like about me, though I reserve the right to react accordingly during any labour time I give to your project. Hugs. x
CONSPIRATORS OF PLEASURE
Conspirators of Pleasure are Poulomi Desai and Simon Underwood, an improvising duo that seek to bend all the rules, question the sacred, create extraordinary soundscape performances and self-regulating sonic systems, using modified and prepared instruments. Their compositions explore experimental terrains, twisting technology to transform organic sounds into eerie calls that flow from intense waves of abrasive, noisy, chaos invoking industrial nostalgia, to structured pulsating rhythms, to melancholic, microtonal drones.
Four Manatees are Dolly Turing and Verity Spott. They are in love and spend time making and shaping dialogues, friendships, schemes, play, poetics. Both are musicians, using improvisation and composition. Both are writers. Their writing has in common queer love, transformation, bathos and a distrust for power games and established and arbitrary formalities. Both hold a deep burning love for ritual, symbolism and process, a light hearted tendency to “make shit up” and a fascination with exploring / exploding boundaries.
Timothy Didymus has a long history of working with generative audio systems; check out his landmark 1997 release ‘Float’ for his work in the Koan environment.Kosmisches Glass is both a musical instrument and an installation, a development from playing liquid filled glasses with fingers. The evolution of ‘musical glasses’ in various histories of musical instruments dates back to the mid 17th century. Didymuses Kosmisches Glass can be seen as a technical development. More information about the background to the project may be gleaned from the Kosmisches Glass primer: http://timothydidymus.com/kosmisches-glass-2/
Leo Marcus is a sound artist and musician based in London. His work aims to explore our current relationships between the built environment and sound, questioning whether a more evaluated and considered position for the audible sense could exist when created in tandem with architecture. Hoping to stimulate discussion around how sound is regarded in spatial practices; Marcus’ work approaches the field of sound art from a social perspective, looking to improve the experiences of public spaces through the use of sound.
Currently he is exploring how we can augment the more functional spaces of our environment, and in doing so create moments of more meaningful pedestrian transit, ultimately transforming definitions of ‘a space’ into what we deem ‘a place’.
Joshua Legallienne’s sculptures and performances explore the sonic qualities of everyday materials; focusing on the creation of sound without the use of loudspeakers or conventional sources of energy. Fascinated by the quiet sounds at the threshold of perception, Legallienne constructs fragile systems that create subtle acoustic sound through physical movement. His works investigate the interplay between environmental phenomena and the physical properties of raw materials, favouring materials that have the ability to transform over time.
