B-MURALS Festival

B-MURALS Festival

Nau Bostik, Barcelona, Spain

BlackAtelier [ James Choules ] and Andrea Parker first came together for the acclaimed cover artwork of Parker’s 1996 release; ‘Melodious Thunk’ where BlackAtelier, under the name of sheOne, painted a piece onto a sheet of rust which was later displayed as part of the 2014 Urban Archaeology exhibition celebrating 21 years of the Mo’Wax label. 



These two artists now collaborate together showcasing the unique method of BlackAtelier’s distinctive artistic delineation guided by exclusive turntable performances from Andrea Parker, blending a morose soundtrack of music - from rare pioneers, sound effects records and dub plates of her own works - to create unpredictable changes of mood and discordant undertones in the hope of provoking the eloquent expression of BlackAtelier’s futuristic work and process, visualised either through influence or by inherent force. 



They have so far showcased their innovative performance for Gamma Proforma’s MTA night at The Social in London, Black. As Painted at Espacio Fundacion Telefonica for We Love Technology in Madrid, The Synthesis Festival in London and at Le Camji, Niort, France.

New Zealand Farm Camp, Gore Cross, Devizes, UK

A spellbinding mix of theatre, film, sound & light inside a secret military base near Stonehenge.

Based on the graphic novel The Delaware Road featuring an incredible line up of experimental artists, film + video producers, DJs, sound designers, guest speakers, writers & illustrators.

Gathered inside the austere military complex of New Zealand Farm Camp near West Lavington, artists will perform work inspired by landscape, myth, broadcast propaganda & the transformative nature of sound.

With overnight camping, food & merchandise stalls plus a licensed bar.

The Delaware Road is a festival of sound & light based on the graphic novel by Alan Gubby. Portraying events from the blitz of London in 1941 until the early 1970's, the story centres around two musicians who develop innovative recording techniques using reel to reel tape. Whilst working for a large broadcasting organisation they uncover a conspiracy with seismic implications for themselves & their country. The Delaware Road is a fantastic vision of post war Britain that explores electronic music, myth, identity, broadcast propaganda & the transformative nature of sound.

Andrea Parker: Inventive

24/06/2018

The Lowry
Pier 8, The Quays,
Salford, M50 3AZ

The Lowry invites UK music artist and producer Andrea Parker to curate her choice of electronic music talent – an evening of some of the best performances in electronic music experimentation, mixed with beautiful visuals on stage.  

Performance #1: Artist Koenraad Ecker (Belgium) is London-based sound sculptor making experimental electro music. This is a collaborative performance made specifically for The Lowry between Ecker (audio) and visuals artist Yannick Jacquet. Koenraad Ecker is a sound sculptor and composer, born in the small town of Bruges, Belgium, currently living in London. He is fascinated by the tactility of sound, the imaginary spaces created by music, the paradoxical qualities of silence and the narrative possibilities of editing. Yannick Jacquet has spent ten years developing a visual arts project exploring how to reverse the deterioration inherent in our exchanges with the world.  

Performance #2: The Sprawl - a syndicate of sound disrupters individually known as Logos, Mumdance and Shapednoise. Conceived as a performance for Berlin’s infamous CTM Festival, Spawl is a collaboration between London’s Mumdance and Logos hooked up with Italy’s Berlin-based specialist for haunting techno, Shapednoise.

Andrea Parker established music labels Touchin’ Bass and aperture records, has remixed artists including Philip Glass, Lamb and The Orb, and supported Radiohead on their USA tour. Parker describes her music interest as 'breaking all things conventional, and combining all things experimental'.
