A live performance-experiment to launch the new label multi.modal and celebrate the release of mm01 on vinyl.
All collaborating artists from the new release will improvise live together, creating a one-off ‘Side C’, complimenting the A+B of the new record.
Pre-release copies of the new record on sale (release date Fri 16th Nov)
Multi.modal is a new London based record label that muddies the borders between improvisation, field recording and composition. Each release on the label will triangulate these artistic spaces and reflect contemporary music practices, which tend to be collaborative and multimodal.
multi.modal is curated by composers and artists Claudia Molitor and Tullis Rennie, based at SPARC (Sound Practice and Research @ City), a research centre at the Music Department of City, University of London.
Decoys, the first release, sees sound artists Angus Carlyle and Mark Peter Wright collaborate to produce a 15-minute composition and a graphic score. This score, which deliberately withheld Wright and Carlyle’s intentions – hence the work’s title – was then interpreted by violinist Alison Blunt, pianist Claudia Molitor and trombonist Tullis Rennie, to form side B of this vinyl release.
