After a long hiatus, it's the return of Ruder Forms Survive!
For our fifth installment:
FORCED INTO FEMININITY
Often Imitated Never Duplicated, Forced into Femininity is the long time eco-terror anti-performance of Jill Lloyd Flanagan.
Born in USSR in the early 1980's, Debbie discovered Western pop music and Soviet new wave first through her father. Who at the time as a navy officer, had access to smuggled media and an underground distribution network. This and the time spent in San Francisco's punk / noise scene (from 2000-2012) continues to shape and influence, what is known as Big Debbie.
Originally the solo project was titled Little Debbie, strictly a bedroom, recording experiment and a way to cope with alcohol addiction. She relocated to Los Angeles, soon after the demo's release , and multiple tours and collaborations followed, - "Dos Lados" EP featuring Ciriza and Terror Apart out on Fantasy1 Records (https://www.fantasy1records.com/r-e-l-e-a-s-e-s). And a full length LP is out on Ratskin.
Founder/curator of Noisevember and Cybercrud records and one time Vengaboys opening act, the ever unpredictable Lydia Musonic is a sound experimenter, machine tinkerer, drone ritualist, wheelchair stagediver and cyborg harsh noise scream queen.
Her recent work deals with biofeedback & motion sensing, rave music telemetry and the disabled body in dance-oriented environments; performance hardware development;
the reinterpretation of historic and influential sound art/experimental music works through the lens of gabber with the Sonic Art For Gabbers project alongside Adam John Williams .
JUPITER'S SONG MACHINE
Genderfluid sonic oracle Jupiter Joy-Flux;
Uniting the earth and technology with love, through song.
Vocal improvisation, medicine song, live-looping and analog synthesis.
Whatever xe decides to bring us, rest assured, it will be weird, thrilling and wonderful.
ADAM JOHN WILLIAMS
Known in some circles as "Chemical Adam", Multi awardwinning Welsh audiovisual sonic art wanker Reverend Doctor Adam John Williams's work has somehow featured at Tate modern & Tate Britain, Centre Pompidou, Transmediale Festival and the London Science amongst countless other crazy places, but lately you'd be more likely to catch them VJing at BangFace weekender whilst wearing a brain scanning headset, or performing with their somatosensory vibroacoustic infrasound art installation "The Bass Orgasm Machine" at a variety of London & Berlin sex & fetish parties.
This crippled queer neurodivergent polymath has an attention span so short and a skill set so large that the content of a performance by them it is often a complete mystery until the very last possible moment, including (and especially) to the artist themselves, but rumour has it that on this night they will share with us a variety of brain-bending processed spoken word & bass drone psychoacoustic sound art pieces, largely devoid of the plentiful kick drums which usually litter the groove inducing sonic onslaught of this benevolent vibe wizard.
New River Studios is a ground floor venue with a wheelchair ramp down to the event space.
There is a very small lip on the main entrance.
There is an accessible toilet with wide door and grab rails in the bar.
