Ecstatic Material is a newly commissioned dynamic sound sculpture by musician and producer Beatrice Dillon and visual artist Keith Harrison.
The performance will include bright multicoloured artwork using soft materials (like playdoh) and coloured light with live electronic sound via a surround sound system. Created and operated by the artisits within the performance space, audiences will literally see and hear the artwork come to life.
Tour support comes from DJs Copper Sounds who spin copper dubplates, ceramic pots, and heavy icelandic rocks, using these materials to create a primitive and tactile form of turntablism. They will also lead a daytime workshop at each tour venue, where participants can design and cast their own playable wax 7” and take it home with them.

About the artists
Beatrice Dillon is a London based musician, producer and artist who presents a monthly show on NTS, and has released music on a variety of record labels, performed at notable European festivals and art spaces like Mutek and the Barbican, and has collaborated widely with award winning visual artists for film, installation and performance www.dillonwork.com
Keith Harrison is an established artist particularly known for his work with ceramics, public experiments and the transformation of raw materials to unpredictable effect. Harrison’s work shows an awareness of social issues: the relation with audience; the value of physical things; references to popular music and social housing.
Copper Sounds are a Bristol based duo who are pushing the conventional DJ set by juggling four turntables and using raw materials to manipulate the otherwise dormant sounds of their varied record collection. Their set promises to be loud, hypnotic and abundant with raw dancefloor energy.
