SCREE Magazine presents
Saturday 14th June 2014
7.30pm, £3 entry at the door
SCREE in association with Syndicate is proud to present an evening of experimental poetry, music and visual art
ANAK-ANAK + SARAH HAYDEN + ROBERT KIELY + RICHARD TAYLOR + ILIOP
This evening raises its glass to Dick Higgins who said: ‘The idea has arisen, as if by spontaneous combustion throughout the entire world, that these points are arbitrary and only useful as critical tools, in saying that such-and-such a work is basically musical, but also poetry. This is the intermedial approach, to emphasize the dialectic between the media… As with the cubists, we are asking for a new way of looking at things. We do not ask any more to speak magnificently of taking arms against a sea of troubles, we want to see it done.’
Stimulation, provocation and/or happiness guaranteed.
£3 at door for 7.30pm start.

ANAK-ANAK is the solo project of Anneke Kampman, one half of Conquering Animal Sound, who creates human-machine music by exploring her voice as an object; words becoming layers and counterpoint. Her new work poses questions around probability, neuroscience and philosophy of mind; applying mathematics to tape, analogue synthesisers and sequencers. https://soundcloud.com/
