, a guest mix by sound art guru Scanner in advance of his world premiere EVP performance at Liverpool Biennial for Mercy on 6th October.
As the grand finale of this awesome weekend interrogating the hauntological electronic voice, Mercy, Liverpool Biennial and Deep Hedonia bring together 3 internationally significant new works made especially for the festival.
Each work brings a uniquely contemporary entry into the intersection of electronics, voice and paranormal psychology. Expect ghostly soundscapes, otherworldly screams, cuts, flows, and synaesthetics at this unique event.
One of the foremost and singularly recognisable sound artists of his generation, Scanner (aka Robin Rimbaud) has won international admiration from amongst others, Bjork, Aphex Twin and Stockhausen. With this new commission for Mercy and Liverpool Biennial 2012, Scanner will present EVP recordings from a theatre in Stockholm built in 1766 along with his trademark intercepted phone conversations to create a survey of anticipation in sound and words, things to come, but not fulfilled. The voice emerges, found, processed, unwrapped, but lost. Throughout, Scanner himself will act as The Host bringing in these voices and spirits to an engaging soundscape.
"For Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner, music is not an end point. Instead, it is part of a complex web of activity that defines the democracy of the digital world." The Wire
