RUSSELL HASWELL – THREE DAY RESIDENCY WITH YASUNAO TONE + FARMERS MANUAL + BRUCE GILBERT + SUE TOMPKINS + JULIAN SIMMONS + MARK DURGAN + MORE



Jam-packed residency from the pre-eminent exponent of UK noise, Russell Haswell, with three curated days featuring collaborators and conteporaries old and new. A multi-disciplinary artist and sonic polymath, Haswell is a record producer, free improvisor, computer musician, noise aficionado, curator and collaborator, and this residency should run the gamut of all these and more. Haswell will kick off the proceedings with a different solo set at the start of each night.

Morphogenesis started recording in January 1985, and the first public performance was at the West Square Festival in London in July '85. The group was formed by a group of people interested in exploring the possibilities of live electronic music and collective improvisation. The members of the group come from a wide range of musical backgrounds and have worked in a variety of musical activities outside of the group. Ron taught music technology at Morley College for 20 years, Adam is a regular on the music scene, notably with his brother Jonathan as one half of the Bohman Brothers and more recently in the trio Secluded Bronte. Clive G's first forays into music making began with recording sessions with Nurse With Wound in the 80s, but joined Morphogenesis in 1990 and later released their music on his Paradigm Discs label along with many other releases of electronic music including Daphne Oram and Pauline Oliveros. Michael Prime is another founder member of the group, but he has been impossible to contact, his last known whereabouts being an island of the coast of Ireland. In his stead they have 2 guests John Wall and Mark Durgan. On this occasion Ron will play from his car outside the venue and send a signal to the PA
Their last performance was in 2010 at the LAFMS Lowest Form Of Music festival in London.
