Created by Art Terry a Malcolm X Sandwich is a performance project created radio theatre which places Marcus Garvey in a former squat turned Airbnb discussing Black Nationalism’s influence on the gig economy. With vibraphone by JT Taylor, voice and electronics by Blanca Regina and BGBGB and video projection by Tyler Moorehead.
Art Terry is a songwriter/musician from Los Angeles. His songs explore sexuality, black politics and religion, through a lyrical fusion of psychedelic folk music and orchestrated funk. A singer and pianist, Art underpins deeply personal lyrics with dense melodic textures. His last album Sex Madness it’s been reviewed by The Wire Magazine in Jan 2020 as: ‘ an amazing album, all the more jaw-dropping for its deceptive simplicity and for the way it refuses to funk out a more obviously raunchy soundtrack. Terry is a precious beam of light in a confusing world.’
JT, drummerman. Mostly, but also partly Neanderthal /panda, a pandathal. Likes to quietly express in rhythm and rage thru beats, but most often observed chewing bamboo ponderously, ever presently. He enjoys creating moods and energy thru drumming out tunes in a form of morse code with bamboo sticks held lightly in his large leathery paws- did you hear it?

SENSE RIOT NOW
Projected Music and the sound of optical agitation
Dan Hayhurst: Electronic sonics
Reuben Sutherland: Video turntable
Sculpture is electronic music producer, Dan Hayhurst, and visual artist, Reuben Sutherland, on a freewheeling excursion through temporary forms of digital composition, analogue electronics, comic strips, sci-fi, pop, psychedelia and multisensory perception. Discovering transitory possibilities in live A/V performance is central. Utilizing an ever-expanding library of zoetropic prints, Sutherland’s visual turntablism combines pre-cinema imaging with cutting-edge digital techniques in hallucinatory loops and jumps. There’s a clear connection with Hayhurst’s unstable sonics, free associations that gleefully defy convention in pursuit of a unique internal logic.
A sequence of animated picture discs have appeared on Dekorder, Psyché Tropes, Ana Ott and Tapebox. Sculpture’s Membrane Pop LP and a live A/V document, Video Plot, were released by Oneohtrix Point Never’s Software label. Slime Code instantiated as 7 unique cassettes plus digital edition on patten’s Kaleidoscope imprint, later reissued on vinyl by Digitalis. The duo’s recent work includes the graphic novel/tape, Nearest Neighbour.
