Holly Herndon @ Syndrome Sessions 2.2, Sep 5

19 August 2014

Syndrome continues their live sessions with Syndrome Sessions 2.2 featuring a live performance by Holly Herndon at their Liverpool location on September 5.

Devised in partnership by Mercy and The Hive Collective, the Liverpool multi-media lab has been hosting the Syndrome Sessions since its launch in April, rolling through an eclectic platform of artists, including avant-garde music collective a.P.A.t.T., glitch artist Antonio Roberts, and dancer Rachel Sweeney in Syndrome Sessions 2.0.

This event, organized in conjunction with Deep Hedonia, features Tennessee runaway Herndon and her hybridized sound, whose mix of modern composition training with a love of Berlin-techno club music takes on a different pitch in her most recent single, ‘Chorus‘, composed of a daily sample of her private internet browsing experience.

Herndon will be joined by a live performance by Kepla of Deep Hedonia as well as a screening of ‘Engineering Joy’ by The Hive Collective.

See the Syndrome event page for details. **
