Live-patching performance in Leicester in response to a text by Chinese artists Yan Jun:
“The Laundrette by the Sea … noise occurs when people throw themselves into the sea of machines … noise actually wants to fail … striking out taxonomy and museums and bank deposits …”
Chinese legendary musician and poet Yan Jun is joined by special guests in an evening of provocations, noise, text and collective contortions.
Yan Jun musician and poet. Born in lanzhou in 1973, based in Beijing. His work includes improvised music, experimental music, field recording, organizing and writing. Alongside performing at venues, he goes to audience’s homes to play with the environment and whatever is available in the room (Living Room Tour project). He does noise hypnotizing for small audiences at any place and amplifies body movements or other performative elements in a simple manner. He is member of FEN, Tea Rockers Quintet and Impro Committee, a regular contributor to the Wire Magazine and founder of the guerrilla label Sub Jam.
Guests to include Dirty Electronics, John Richards, Neal Spowage, Dushume, Jim Frize, Steve Jones, Max Wainwright, Leigh Landy, Johan Eriksson, et al.
