No-wave/improv/post-punk matinee @ nutclough!
November 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
‘bellies!’s music is a life-baked concoction. Formed in a do it yourself habitus, injected with the energy of free improvisation, the duo create imperfectly formed melodic song shocks, replete with hooks and eyes.
Believe in Hell evokes the atmosphere of Brechtian political opera, the vocal pointillism of Meredith Monk and the pop-post-punk sensibilities of 80s Bananarama.
The songs draw inspiration from the horrors of the present and the mistakes of the past. They probe the edges of where the future could be different with reference to the psycho-philosophies of Jane Arden and feminist histories of technology”
‘EP/64 create improvised performances that incite audiences to feel, move and invent. Started by vocalist Dali de St Paul (HARRGA, Viridian Ensemble and DSC) in 2016, the project features different musicians and artists mostly drawn from Bristol’s experimental arts and improvised music scenes who combine to unleash frenzied incantations and rhythmic mutations into the world.
EP/64 – Ephemeral Project 64 – will perform 64 times and then stop.’
