Amnesia Scanner are performing ICA with support from coucou chloé

13 December 2016

Amnesia Scanner will be performing live at London’s ICA on December 14.

Now signed to London’s Young Turks label, the Berlin-based electronic duo will present a new immersive installation, bringing together both visual and audio elements, potentially of a similar ilk to their ongoing Lexachast live collaboration with PAN‘s Bill Kouligas and artist Harm van den Dorpel. London-based French producer coucou chloé will open with a live performance.

The event is part of an ongoing programme selected by NTS Radio who are currently part of the ICA Music Associates. Set up to generate “collaborations with established and emerging record labels, artists and music organisations” it has also worked with Warp, Just Jam, and Factory Floor.

See the ICA website for details.**

 

FKA Twigs – ‘Papi Pacify’

16 September 2013

Two of the more intriguing, elusive and thus exciting artists to really rise this year, FKA Twigs (nee just ‘Twigs’) and Arca present another excellent video to follow last month’s ‘Water Me‘, an uncanny valley contribution from director, designer and animator Jesse Kanda. This time it’s photographer and film maker Tom Beard working with the Gloucestershire artist’s vision on ‘Papi Pacify’, in anticipation of her EP2 release out tomorrow, September 17, on Young Turks.

This video features imagery that complements the heavy-physicality-meets-the-‘feminine’-ephemeral that FKA Twigs’ trip hop roots, morphed and mingled with Arca’s bass undertow creates, in generating a sublime and sensual whole. **

Unfortunately their first release which includes their hit On The Way (+  Let It Go which appeared on Koreless’ 2010 live set Pictures Music x Boiler Room) will be limited to a 500 only edition plus a digital release. More info and pre-order this way.
