SOUNDISCOVERY // LATE PARTY // HACKNEY WICK

FREE ENTRY BEFORE 10PM // £5 CASH ON DOOR AFTER

For centuries, mankind has been fascinated with the possible sounds of the heavens. We know that sound travels the space and needs a medium through which to travel. Sound results from the disturbance or vibration of the particles in that medium.

Discovering how the sound affects the body and the mind is our mission. We will find the key through your stories, your space battles, and your movements because we wouldn't hear it or feel it otherwise if it wasn't real.

Every Soundiscovery party is a musical journey that takes the listener from Jazz and funk to disco, experimental and new wave to house and techno through carefully selected tracks and skilfully put together DJ sets from each of the Soundiscovery DJ’s.

Line Up:
Nick Williams (Meda Fury / Phonica Records)
Fede (Soundiscovery)
Michele Michinyc Slapper (Soundiscovery)
Phiorio (Soundiscovery / Metroline Limited)

Full on TPI Sound System

Dark Red Room, Huge Mirror Ball, Foggy & Confused Enviroment, Horario Espanolo.

COLUMN 258 // EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC PROJECT // LIVE

COLUMN 258 // EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC PROJECT // LIVE

FREE ENTRY

Column 258 is a 6-piece experimental music project that combines spoken word with improvised alt-punk grunge jazz. They blend both analogue and digital sounds with improvised instruments, found objects and samples; from horns to mini-moogs, guitars to electric pine cones.

They have variously been described as sounding like The Doors meets Nick Cavemeets Soft Machine, meets Gong—but ultimately their sound is truly their own,with a post-modernist feel and apocalyptic energy, soaring and carving its way into a hinterland of soundscapes ...

Whilst it may seem grandiose to lay claim to being label-free or unclassifiable, in the case of C258 it is actually true. This is music as a force for change, seeking escape from the tyranny of conformity and predictability.

EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC FEATURING ZEYN MROUEH + MONACO

FREE ENTRY

A night of experimental music featuring Zeyn Mroueh and Monaco.

ABOUT ZEYN MROUEH

Zeyn Mroueh is a Cypriot-born, Lebanese-Palestinian musician creating industrial soundscapes and experimental noise music.

He composes primarily on the guitar using an array of effects and samples to distort and manipulate traditional music in atonal sound experiences. With creative roots in psychedelic and stoner rock, he references melodic music within the frameworks of his pieces in minimal spells, creating an effect on the listener that reflects his views on the lived experiences of those existing in postmodern society - long bouts of discomfort, confusion, entrancement, struggle that are relieved by few and fragile moments of beauty, love and release."

SENSE #1: PERCEPTION. AN EVENING EXPLORING AUDIO VISUAL AT GROW

SENSE #1: PERCEPTION. AN EVENING EXPLORING AUDIO VISUAL AT GROW

FREE ENTRY

Sense #1 : Perception. An evening exploring audio-visual

Sense is a collaborative project led by Patricia Puertas, Joel Smith and Xuân Sinden and Grow in Hackney Wick.

For our opening event, join us in exploring the unique ways in which we all perceive the world and the variables that influence the human experience. Do we perceive the same phenomena from person to person? Is our perceptual world the same as the real world? What is the real world? ...

Join Joel Smith + Patricia Puertas, who have previously worked together in diverse sound performances commissioned by British Museum and Royal Academy of Arts. Their individual exploration and experimentation of sounds merge to create a rich, textured soundscape. Featuring ethereal siren-like vocals and shimmering, effects-laden guitar motifs shifting across a fluid canvas of field recordings, found-sounds, samples, grooves and live improvised sounds, their performances continue to evolve. They will be bringing Chris Marker’s 1962 French sci-fi featurette La Jetée under their sonic treatment as a live, improvised score.

Xuân Sinden is an installation and sound artist whose work begins from the poetic process of documenting the mundinaity of our everyday environments. Creating a pattern of image and sound, Sinden captures the various tensions, and pleasures, of living amongst the “movement of [our] imagination forming and deploying through images.” [1]. His immersive installations portray the notion of a constant, and revolving city.[1] Cecil Day Lewis. The Poetic Image. (London: Jonathan Cape, 1964.) P. 27.

ARICIA MESS + SPECIAL GUESTS // LIVE MUSIC // FREE ENTRY

ARICIA MESS + SPECIAL GUESTS // LIVE MUSIC // FREE ENTRY

FREE ENTRY

Arícia Mess is an Afro Brazilian singer that is gifting us through her staying in London, where a collaboration with the also Brazilian artist Aleh Ferreira has developed and will be exclusively showcased at Grow for your delight!

The live set is filled with the artist's own compositions, filled with groove, grace and joy. A farewell of Aricia, as she leaves London in a high energy party, with special Dj set of Nina Miranda ( Smoke City and Zeep ) and her own as Aricia has her own web/radio podcast "Flower Power" at Radio Vozes.

https://youtu.be/8Ej_-Y6mqi

About Arícia

Brazilian via soul and funk and with righteous black pride, Arícia sings in praises of the natural forces of womanhood, notably the Afro-Brazilian woman. She once again, in her own unique and personal way, recreates the links between Africa and Brazil. Aricia has a peculiar yet powerful, refined, poignant and captivating voice.

For Arícia, art is an offering, a way to lessen the sufferings of many, even the recently departed. Thus, her work is dedicated to and celebrates feminine divinities; the Indian and African women who inhabited this continental country and gave up their lives during decades of slavery and pain. If the ‘terreiro’ drums make the connection with the divine, then on the dance floor the experience is repeated with joy and abandon. Aricia Will be releasing her new four-track EP " Sem Medo Do Mar ", plus two more remixes by producer Victor Rice, in June 2017. Featuring the song "A Fome e o Canibalismo", written by herself and Chico César, one of the top names of Brazilian music.

Link to the videoclip Sem Medo do Mar, released in December 2016 : https://youtu.be/8Ej_-Y6mqi4

About Aleh

Aleh is a Brazilian singer and composer from Rio de Janeiro who debuted in the mid-90s playing with his reggae band Bantus as the opening band at The Wailers’ show. Started composing songs for various Brazilian TV shows and contributed reviving the Banda Black Rio, a Brazilian funky musical group originally formed in 1976. His popularity grew with the release of his next album MPBSOULSAMBAGROOVE (Nikita) and the single ‘Dona da Banca’, better known as the soundtrack of ‘A Diarista’, the famous Brazilian TV series.

In World Cup at South Africa, Aleh performed with the Banda Black Rio at the FIFA Fun Fest in Durban and Cape Town; Then he embarked upon his first European tour to publicize his second

album Aleh + Samba (Biscoito Fino) including shows at the Brazil Music Week in Oxford’s University, the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and the Brazil House exhibition at the Somerset House. In France, Aleh also performed at Studio de L'Ermitage, Belleviloise, Maison de L’Amerique Latine, at the Favela Chic Club and at Cité Universitaire in Paris.

In 2012 he was the special guest on first international tour of Banda Black Rio with shows at New morning (Paris), Amsterdan (Paradiso), Ronnie Scoot’s (London).

In 2015, he returned to Europe to show in Brazil day in Barcelona Festival.

In Search Of

"In Search Of are the result of a friendship formed by four boys at secondary school in East London. There they swapped musical styles and influences to create a group with an output which touches so many genre bases. In the clutch of tracks produced so far, there are moments of rock, hip hop, RnB, reggae, jazz, dub and indie fused together with hidden, echoey and often eerie vocals and harmonies. Mixing tributes to older sounds with innovative new ones, life is certainly never dull with In Search Of around"
