For his first Swiss show, Sides takes on the documentary genre with his work of filmic research centered around four contemporary electronic musicians – namely, York’s Theo Burt, Barcelona’s Roc Jiménez de Cisneros of EVOL, Rotherham’s Mark Fell and Milan’s Lorenzo Senni.
As Sides’s film installation unfurls both spatially and acoustically over all three of the gallery’s exhibition spaces, the four musicians are probed about not only their techniques and inspirations, but about the cultural idiosyncrasies that determine who adopts what music and why.
don’t blow it in the vector‘s opening reception on August 23 will feature a performance by Gregory Hari, which will be followed by a screening of Sides’s film in a two-day programme as part of ICA‘s Journal on September 6 to 7.
