Strange Attractor presents The Glasgow Working
15 February 2012,
at The Old Hairdressers, 27 Renfield Lane, Glasgow.
Doors: 7:00pm – 11:00pm
To celebrate the opening of Objections to an Empty Mind at The Hidden Noise gallery [see below], Strange Attractor presents a night of talk, music and film.
– Phil Baker, author of Austin Osman Spare: The Life and Legend of London’s Lost Artist, presents an illustrated talk about the artist and his work.
– Magick Concrète : a mediumistic improvisation for phonomantium* and guitar, featuring Mark Pilkington (Strange Attractor) and Drew Mulholland (Mount Vernon Arts Lab).
– The London Nobody Knows (1969, 60 minutes): James Mason presents a wry view of unseen London, based on the books of Geoffrey Fletcher – a psychogeographer’s delight.
Tickets are available online or at Monorail in Glasgow
*phonomantium: modular instrumentation composed of tape, radio, samplers, loopers, echoes and pseudo-random voltage generators designed to warp, slice and bend incoming sound sources and extract new information from the immediate environment.
