GABA-analogue, the one-night installation at London’s Printworks venue, commissioned by London Contemporary Orchestra, this week announced the musicians will be gracing the awe inspiring space.
An idea over a year in the making, the event is penned as a unique immersive audio-visual experience. Four orchestras will play simultaneously with electronic sampling, across multiple different performances. The audience will be free to wander around the accompanying installation as the scores unfold.
Shiva Feshareki, acclaimed turntablist and composer and creator of the GABA-analogue concept will be supported by follow composers Edmund Finnis, CHAINES and Benedict Mason and conductor Robert Ames. UIQ label boss and musician Lee Gamble will play an exclusive aftershow DJ set.
Shiva Feshareki’s work is concerned primarily with the physicality of sound - she focuses on sampling, as well as analogue and bespoke electrics that generate 'real' and pure sounds of electricity, over computer products. She’s also an occasional DJ and presents experimental classical music on NTS Radio.
The event at Printworks precedes another Feshareki-commissioned collaboration between Gamble and the LCO, which will see the Orchestra performing his first acoustic composition inside a cave in Northumbria this September.
