Searching for humble principles of growth; physis; sound, connecting with others in the same space/moment, customary experimental play, with threads and beads of improvisation, interactivity. She makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute. She has collaborations with Sam Weaver, Andie Brown and Hannah Ellul (White Death). Kelly has just announced a new live collaboration with internationally renowned US composer, saxophonist, mixed-media practitioner, and sonic voyager Mantana Roberts. Kelly has also undertaken residencies at Arnolfini in Bristol UK and Kunstalle Bergen, Norway. Commissioned works for Haris Epaminonda at dOCUMENTA13, Tate Modern, ICA London, SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT, Point Centre Nicosia. She has worked on various projects at CCA Glasgow, Treize Gallery Paris, Borealis Festival, Tectonics contemporary music festival Reykjavik, Hangar Bicocca gallery, Milan and for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. 4 Apr — LOFT LOFT navigates subtly diffracted slices of sub-aquatic/outer-space club music, riddled with palpitating drums, sparkling synth work and hallucinogenic sound design; the results ranging from cerebral polyrhythmic techno to grotesque new age manipulations. With RA and Mixmag tipped releases on Astral Plane Recordings and Wisdom Teeth, a monthly show on NTS and an increasingly busy schedule of live shows and DJ spots, LOFT is killing it right now. If that wasn’t enough, Bjork recently included ‘Funemployed’ on her cover mix for Mixmag. 11 Apr — Space Afrika With their slow-stepping, spacious urban dubscapes, Space Afrika harness ambient, Detroit techno and shades of early nineties Sheffield with a fresh and open approach to composition — this is dub techno stripped-down, sealed in a time capsule and sent back from the near future. Driving, echo-laden deep beats form the bed for a heavily subaquatic sound palette with undercurrents of cybernetic dread. Friends for almost 2 decades, the two Joshuas formed Space Afrika after years of listening to music together, heavily inspired by the industrial architecture of Northwest England and notions of travel; their sonic framework evokes images of rust and disintegrating concrete, and sensations of movement and redemption. Closely associated with Where To Now?, who slink along a vintage axis of post-punk, On-U Sound, minimal and no wave influences, Space Afrika's diverse and creative radio shows (notably their residencies on NTS and Reform Radio) also display a breadth of curiosities in experimental and avant-garde music, old and new. With a bank of machines at their disposal, Space Afrika will give you an unique insight into the inner workings of their post-industrial deep dub odysseys.
