AND Festival 2011 - Part 2

inari_card

Picking up from my opening account of the recent AND Festival in Liverpool, I'd like to focus today on the three AND salons held over the weekend at LEAF. Each discussion concerned a different topic and I'll come to them in turn.

AND Festival 2011 - Part 1

performance_and_festThe Abandon Normal Devices festival took place in Liverpool recently, from September 29th to October 2nd. I was lucky enough to be there and while I'd attended some smaller AND events before, I had little idea of what to expect. Nevertheless I dove into various exhibits, discussions and performances over the weekend.

Come feast your eyes – and, of course, your ears - on an evening of awe-inspiring music videos, astounding online nuggets and a unique brand of sit down comedy with Adam Buxton - comedian, writer, broadcaster, video director, general music video enthusiast and YouTube comment wrangler. Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Adam presents a selection of his favourite music videos from the BUG shows at London’s BFI Southbank over the past year, along with some delightfully unbalanced commentary from the YouTube community, all interspersed with his some gems of his own making.

Neutrino as part of AND Festival

277054_173474056065556_1233426014_nDopplereffekt is one of the strangest and most mysterious units on the electronic music scene today. 

Only a handful of interviews with the group exist, and live appearances are likewise a rare occurrence. One thing we do know about the group is its apparent love of experimental physics, with song titles such as "Calabi-Yau Manifold", "Linear Accelerator" and "Myon-Neutrino" appearing on recent records.

Democratic Promenade at the Bluecoat

image_copy_copy

With Art in Liverpool not posting much and the Bluecoat just losing one of their marketing staff, here is one for the Bluecoat...

Responding to 2011’s Liverpool: City of Radicals theme, this exhibition draws on cultural and political narratives from the past century and asks what constitutes radical art practice today? The theme is prompted by events 100 years ago that had a profound cultural, architectural and political impact: a seminal exhibition by the Post-Impressionists at the Bluecoat, the opening of the Liver Building, controversial in its design and cast-concrete fabrication, and the transport strike that brought the city ‘near to revolution’. The title Democratic Promenade is taken from Walter Dixon Scott’s description of the Landing Stage in his 1907 book Liverpool.
