Liverpool Philharmonic: FACT and Deep Hedonia Present: Nik Colk Void and Klara Lewis
Venue: Royal Liverpool Philharmonic
Times: 20:00 - 22:00
On Wednesday 1 February, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) and Deep Hedonia are delighted to present a live performance by two of the most exciting female producers changing the face of electronic music today: London-based sound sculptress Nik Colk Void and experimental Swedish composer, Klara Lewis, at the Liverpool Philharmonic.
Known for her industrial disco outfit Factory Floor, Nik Colk Void harnesses the technique’s hypnotic force to create a new kind of primal, minimal dance music. Alternative, spontaneous and improvisational, Void has very quickly established her solo practice as a challenging, vibrant mixture of art and sound, and her reputation as a master of cross-arts collaboration.
Critically acclaimed Lewis, with her signature explorations of field recordings, electronics, rhythm, sound and atmosphere, is inspired by an eclectic mix of artists like James Brown, Aphex Twin and Portishead. These diverse influences flow into offerings enriched by grainy sonic textures, unexpected melodies, and abstract landscapes.
Please find more information on the FACT website – booking available at the Liverpool Philharmonic Box Office.
This performance is part of the Public Programme for the new group exhibition No Such Thing As Gravity, exploring the nature of scientific truth, open until 5 February at FACT.
This performance marks the beginning of a series of hands-on, female-led workshops at FACT which focus on the demystification of technology for young women, teaching technological skills for music-making.
