Black Industrial / Noise Event 1: Nkisi

IKLECTIK presents,

Black Industrial / Noise Event 1: Nkisi

Wednesday 19 July 2023 | Doors: 8pm
Our Kiosk opens 1 hour before doors.

Tickets: £12 adv / £15 otd

This series brings together artists, musicians, and writers to think about different notions of Black Industrial/Noise. How has it been elaborated previously? What affiliations between musical forms might it suggest? What different meanings does it have for practitioners working today?

After the performance, Nkisi will be joined in conversation by Dr. Hannah Catherine Jones.

First guest artist: Nkisi.

Nkisi produces intense, powerful sonics influenced by ancient Kongo rhythms, rhythmic noise, our planetary electromagnetic grid, and experimental improvisation. The creative musician and visual artist is one of the co-founders of NON Worldwide. She recently launched her label INITIATION and research platform The Secret Institute, exploring the secrets and mysteries of vibrational rhythm, the ritual as a socio-political tool, invisible gestural sonics, and strategies of trance.

Jones completed her AHRC DPhil scholarship at Oxford University for which the ongoing body of work The Oweds was presented as a series of live and recorded, broadcast, audio-visual episode-compositions, using disruptive sound as a methodology of institutional decolonisation and was awarded with no corrections in 2021. Jones was a recipient of the BBC Radiophonic Oram Award for innovation in music (2018) and has been previously nominated for the Paul Hamlyn Award Composer Award (2014).
