Convergence kicks off today with several events held across London over the next week.
Today Convergence host their opening sold out party at Village Underground, with !!! (chk chk chk) set to headline and perform tracks from their sixth studio album, As If. Support will come from London-based electronic musician and recent Ninja Tune signing, Ash Koosha.
Friday 11 March will see two separate shows take place. Earlier in the evening Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur will present the first full UK performance of their new project Junun at Barbican Centre. Village Underground will later see Londoners Factory Floor curate “a night of live analogue electronics, club jams, propulsive techno and ambient bliss,” featuring Shit Robot, Karen Gwyer and Kara-Lis Coverdale.
Factory Floor have previously collaborated with Throbbing Gristle, New Order Cabaret Voltaire and Peter Gordon, as well as contemporary visual artists such as Haroon Mirza and Hannah Sawtell. Their live performance at Village Underground will also give fans the chance to hear new material from their upcoming album, which is currently due this summer on DFA.
You can check out the Convergence 2016 compilation (which features Ash Koosha, Throwing Snow and more) and full line-up below.
