RESOLUTION X AMOENUS
AURES LONDON - 14.04.2019
This audiovisual event was a collaboration between AMOENUS and London based art organisation RESOLUTION. Specifically developed for Aures London sound system, it fully utilised a 54 speaker array and projection area spanning over walls and arched ceilings. Resolution presented three live performances and a specially curated exhibition, introducing the audience to the immersive potential of the Aures venue.
Previously known for his seminal industrial dubstep outfit Vex'd, Roly Porter’s recent productions are all-encompassing explorations of dark sonic territories. In recent years Roly has concentrated his forces into long-form conceptual pieces, such as 2013's 'Life Cycle of a Massive Star', as well as working on BFI commissioned sci-fi/horror scores. His most recent album, 'Third Law' (released via Tri Angle) was described as “leaving dance music as it is, free to explore ideas of rhythm, bass, sound design within his own world... without preconceived ideas or rules.”
Bruised Skies creates layered, visual music that captures a melancholic isolated landscape, oceans of sound lapping against shores; guiding the listener. With previous releases on Blank Editions, and his album ‘Remnants’ on Dream Catalogue, his music is a cross between season 3 of Twin Peaks and John Carpenter’s experimental scores; beautifully dark, bleak and isolated in its journey throughout. Resolution will be working alongside Bruised Skies to expand the album’s visual aesthetic for our custom multi-channel projection system.
Ieva’s (aka piksel) musical journey started with her studying violin classically and has since performed and collaborated for events such as Curious Festival (in association with the Barbican Centre), Roundhouse CircusFest and more recently Syntrex - a multimedia collective bridging music, visual art and dance, with the most recent performance at Pickle Factory. Her music follows a close narrative of everyday life with juxtaposed beats, violin harmonies and glitchy sound design. Piksel will be working with Amy Dang and Stefan Iyapah (Boiler Room) to utilise our custom projection system to its full effect.
