Another high quality double bill at Spektrum this saturday with glambient, post-wonk musician Broshuda and Graham Dunning both showcasing their latest works.
Broshuda has been releasing on various formats on leftfield and experimental leaning labels like sonic router, phinery and seagrave. he meanders between beatless excursions comprised of synths and field recordings over to phase shifting piano layers to more beat heavy abstract territories, pursuing the ethos of not sampling outside sources but rather resampling and rearranging strictly his own material through various techniques. Intensive sound design and the search/need for unique sonic material plays a key part in his creations, leading him to using original sounds for each of his tracks.
He has done soundtrack work for film , theater and installations, including work for a play shown at Kunstverein Hamburg and Kunsthalle Dresden plus soundtracking a befriended artists work for a installation at Children´s Museum of the Arts in Brooklyn, New York. This year will see a sling of new releases for Barcelona´s Paralaxe editions, London´s videogamemusic and Sonic router along with his first vinyl release for Seagrave recordings.
As an artist Graham Dunning make things in various different formats, but generally to do with either Sound or Found Objects. My background is in experimental music and this continues into the art I make and how I go about it. I use experimentation and play as a main part of my making process. Dunning also likes to set himself restrictions for my projects similarly to the way scientific experiments are conducted.
Noise – as unwanted sound like record crackle or tape hiss – often features in my work, and a visual equivalent in dirt, dust or decay. He often trys and repeat a visual process with audio, and vice versa. My work explores time and commemoration: how people store their memories, in personal archives – photographs, audio journals, post-it notes – and what becomes of those archives. I find discarded objects interesting in themselves, for the stories that they suggest or that can be read into them. Collecting things has always held a fascination for me, both to do myself and to look at the way others do it.
