electronic music, installation & invented instruments
at Trinity Buoy Wharf, Orchard Place, London, E14
Trevor Taylor plays the Baschet Brothers 'sculptures sonores'
Kreepa - [invented instruments] & special guest Paul Dunmall
Jem Finer - 'Longplayer' millenium installation
Nicholas James Bullen (Napalm Death) DJ set

Trinity Buoy Wharf is the spectacular riverside location of a lighthouse & a
workshop where 'father of electricity', Michael Faraday did his pioneering
experiments in electromagnetism & will provide a unique setting for two
remarkable performances of live electronic music.

'Underkurrent' will feature original instruments by Bernard & Francois
Baschet (the pioneers of sound scupture) performed by Trevor Taylor (who
produced the book 'Les Scuptures Sonores'). He will also perform Walter
Fabeck's new site-specific composition, "360", especially conceived for
Trinity Buoy Wharf.

Kreepa - an electric improvising ensemble (featuring members of 'Sand').
will showcase their baffling array of self-invented instruments, such as the
Tromboscillator (Hilary Jeffery) & the Eraser Recorder (Cesar Villavicencio)
and the Kreepback Instrument (John Richards).
Kreepa will be joined by very special guest saxoponist Paul Dunmall.

The lighthouse is home to Jem Finer's millenium installation "Longplayer" -
a 1000 year long piece of music which started to play on the 1st January
2000 & will be open to the public as part of the event.

The event will also feature a rare DJ set from Nicholas James Bullen -
founder of the seminal Napalm Death and Scorn.
