ABATTOIR/SATORI

ABATTOIR/SATORI at The Cube Microplex Wed 19 June 2019 from 8pm

Abattoir/Satori

Tonight we have a collaborative work between Italy’s Lorenzo Abattoir and legendary UK project Satori.  Recent albums Aether, and Megaloschemos are densely constructed and multi-layered assemblages of chordal swells, whirring machinery cogs, aberrant rituals, and sprawling, tar-black atmospheres. Even as parts reach cataclysmic levels of intensity and magnitude, this is the sound of chaos merging with order, where every detail and nuance seems to be carefully regulated and controlled.  Music that is based on the physical and mental disconnect facing everyone in the modern world. A constant pervasive undercurrent of violence, the feeling of a society on the brink of a total meltdown and the fears and torments of the powerless individual.

Formed in 1982 and immersed in the industrial and power electronics culture, Satori has released music on the legendary Broken Flag, Tesco, and Cold Spring, with "Aether" representing a new statement of intent of original member Dave Kirby.

Lorenzo Abattoir is an Italian-based noise artist and sound engineer whose work takes shape in a context of underground extreme music to become accessible through various projects related to contemporary art, including Psicopompo with German composer Hermann Kopp (4IB Records), the electro-acoustic collective Mare Di Dirac (Dusktone Records), and a collaboration with Phurpa.

This duo create absorbing music sure to appeal to fans of all sub-genres of true industrial music.


Knifedoutofexistance

Since its conception in 2012, Brighton-based noise artist KNIFEDOUTOFEXISTENCE (aka Dean Lloyd Robinson) has fixated on the duality between energy release and its very suppression; the act of catharsis and the forces – both external and internal – that conspire to stifle it. Inhibitors is the most potent examination of this dynamic to date. Within every instrument, Robinson imbues a struggle to communicate freely and coherently: synthesisers choke on chunks of distortion, feedback bleeds across field recordings of public spaces, noise and tannoy slapback are draped, like burdensome chainmail, over feverdreamt screams and lethargic croaks of defeat." 

A new album, "Cracks Below The Surface out soon on Strange Rules.

 

Organchrist

Opening tonight we have Bristol based duo Organchrist.  Creating  layers of looped and abrasive drone, mixed with feedback and techno to induce the listener into a state of ritualistic rapture.  Described as 'electronic warfare' they revel in the unforgiving, as will you.

Bristol has strong sense of social responsibility. From the protests rallied against Tesco, to the community boosting Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft. The Cube cinema is another excellent example. In 1998 a group of Artists who at the time ran “underground mobile cinema events” took it over and turned it into what it is today. It stands equally as both a cinema and an arts venue. Inside it has a raised stage and tiered seating, in the old theatre style, which can hold just over 100 people.

Driven by a strong set of ethics it refuses to serve Nescafe and even goes as far as to make its own brand of cola called (funnily enough) Cube Cola.
 

The cinematic screenings it puts on are always more interesting than what will be on at your local Odeon and it shows a lot of world cinema which we may never come across without it. The same goes for the live music events. The gigs are varied and include art and dance performances, live concerts, discussions and theatre.

Please note, The Cube Microplex is an independent cinema and requires membership to attend events, this will cost you just one pound on your first visit and lasts a life time.
