Hive Return to FACT This Sunday

This Sunday April 29 2007 sees Hive return to FACT’s Cinema 3 for the first time since Frank Bretschneider’s stunning performance in 2004.

With full FACT tech support and warm up from our residents Alextronic and Wassarts we’re proud to host The Leaf Label Tour with live performances from Colleen and Triosk.

Some background on the artists…

Triosk formed in Sydney, Australia in 2001 performing improvised-based music in which electronics play an active and equal role. Their live gigs update jazz for the post-digital age, invigorating the sound with explosive post-rock action and glistening, cracked electronics.

Colleen aka Cécile Schott is a Paris based artist compiling a beguiling body of work. Her beautiful and haunting songcycles lurk in hidden chambers beneath the fields of modern composition, micro-electroacoustica, arthouse folk, and invisible soundtrack psychedelia. Simple but effortlessly charming, Colleen’s music is one of magical details – naïve instrumentals filled with warmth, melody and soul.

Doors are at 20.30 with the first live performance at 21.00

Tickets are on sale at FACT (£7/5.50) now.
