London’s Barbican hosts a month of audio-visual installations and live music with appearances from Demdike Stare, J.G. Biberkopf and Nozinja.
Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening is a ‘living exhibition’ curated and hosted by American video and installation artist Doug Aitken and will run from 27 June to 26 July at the Barbican Centre in London. Amongst the programme of events will be a series of collaborative performances hosted by NTS, combining live music with audio-visuals. On June 27 Berlin-based producer J.G. Biberkopf will perform his blend of Grime-infused Ambient works with visuals from artist Joe Hamilton.
July 9 will see NTS present Manchester’s electronic experimentalists and Modern Love mainstays Demdike Stare for a performance of their occult-inspired Techno alongside specially commissioned visuals from Michael England. Joining them on the night will be Heron, an affiliate of the popular Manchester club night and label _meandyou. alongside a live AV performance from label co-founder Andrew Lyster.
Later in the month on July 23, Nozinja – the international ambassador of South Africa’s fast-rising Shangaan Electro sound – will host a live performance in the Barbican’s Art Gallery. It will feature his highly animated ensemble of vocalists and dancers from his hometown of Limpopo, where he’s become something of a celebrity in recent years. Nozinja is set to release his new album ‘Nozinja Lodge’ on pioneering British electronic label Warp on June 1. A journey through the breakneck tempos and frantic synthesized melodies of Shangaan Electro, the LP is currently available to stream via The Guardian.
