Basic House audio visual collaboration at Supersonic festival 2014

Basic House, Live at Supersonic festival 2014, Birmingham UK, visuals by Rachel Lancaster.....

"..... Supersonic has the consistently best quality line-ups and is the most engaging and stimulating to fans of underground music. Certainly no other festival introduces me to more new and exciting music than this one.” THE QUIETUS



I am taking part in 'Arborescent_03', on Saturday 10th May, I have created a graphic score which will be played by a trio of musicians live at the Mirage Deck at Kielder Forest.

"For Arborescent, Rachel will create a score generated through the spectral analysis of found vocal samples of the first known recordings of the human voice dating from the 1860's, these will be digitally manipulated and collaged together."

more details below:

Gallery North presents PAINTING THE PIXEL Exhibition and Artists' Talk
Public Preview and Artists' Talk Tuesday 4 March 2014Artists' Talk: 4 - 6pm
Preview: 6pm - 8pm
Exhibition: 3 March - 11 April 2014, weekdays 10am - 4pm
Exhibiting Artists: Andrea Champlin, Joy Garnett, Paul Goodfellow, Dan Hays, Rachel Lancaster, Cara Nahaul, Daksha Patel, Rachel Sharp and Jo Wilmot
PAINTING THE PIXEL includes the work of nine international artists who are navigating the inherent paradoxes between the computer's immaterial, encoded matrix and the handmade. The exhibition investigates how digital technology is used as a conceptual tool in painting, how the virtual 'non-space' is reconfigured through the material presence of paint, and how the cultural currency of the image has shifted in relation to the phenomenon of the Internet. Curated by Rachel Sharp as part of her practice-led PhD research at Northumbria University. 
On Tues. 4 March, Gallery North will host a tour of the exhibition and artists? panel from 4-6 pm followed by a wine reception from 6-8 pm.
Both events are free to attend.
