Scanner’s “Of Air and Ear”

Sound-artist Robin Rimbaud, better known as Scanner, premieres a new work with Sophie Clements this Saturday, 13th September, at the Royal Opera House in London.

Entitled Of Air and Ear, the six-hour performance is part of Deloitte Ignite, a three-day programme of special events curated by Wayne McGregor. Scanner will combine his distinctive sound design with a spectacular “playable light sculpture” by visual artist Sophie Clements, complemented by live percussion from Peter Lockett. The event runs from 8pm through until 2am, allowing punters to be drawn deep into the hypnotic, unexpected dialogue set up between colour, music, texture and light.

Scanner remains best known in electronica circles for his self-titled debut album of 1993, which saw him investigate the ethics of surveillance culture by constructing tracks from fragments of tapped mobile phone conversations. Via FactMagazine
