Ex-Easter Island Head + Laura Cannell, Saturday 16 September, 8pm

“Following on from a critically acclaimed performance at Supersonic Festival 2017 – “an enthralling performance that is almost cult-like in appearance” (The Quietus), “A symphony of humming reverberations”, EEIH convene a gathering of their Large Electric Ensemble.

Comprising performers drawn from all corners of the thriving Manchester and Salford underground the expanded ensemble present an ambitiously scaled work for 18+ prepared electric guitars and percussion. Utilising a self-developed language of extended techniques and mechanical preparations the piece sees the groups’ shimmering electrified minimalism expanded to a bold new scale, creating a fully contained world of percussive klang and microtonal drone, encompassing members of Gnod, ILL, Action Beat, Mother and tapping into the vast resources of talent at Salford’s Islington Mill and on the Manchester-based Tombed Visions label.”
