jem

What have you been working on since the birth of PVC 1 year ago?
I’ve been working hard on PVC, trying to keep it moving, staying honest and representing our position in the club scene in Glasgow and further afield. I’ve started making some silly party music with fellow PVC DJ Sunshower as Kissu, as well as a new radio show we’re both working on together, called Waterproof for Datafruits.fm. I’ve also recorded a collaborative demo at Green Door studios under the name Gong Bath with some other Glasgow musicians and working on some ideas currently in production.

What has been your favourite past PVC party or guest?
Playing with Danny L Harle was a bit of a dream, and of course the crazed joy that was the freshers’ party last year that ended in Matthieu (ents convener at the time) pouring an entire can of orangeboom over himself in celebration come 3am.

What do you hope to see in the music/club scene in Glasgow over the next year?
honest conversation, responsibility, mutual support and dumb fun

Le Graciés – Live10th August, 2016

graciey

Le Graciés is a collaboration in the truest sense between Paris-based sound artist Gaël Segalen and Deepblak co-founder Afrikan Sciences.

Segalen’s experiments in electroacoustic sound met the wider world this year via a debut LP for Erratum, an arresting work that showcases her ability to merge hypnotic murk ala Angus MacLise with the hard concréte of Parmegiani & Reibel. Segalen’s IHearU imprint / organisation is a platform for her various doings, including psychogeographical audio works and multi-media collaborations, as well as servicing as a reference point for other contemporary female artists working across various mediums. Eric Douglas Porter aka African Sciences has been deconstructing and re-building forms of contemporary Black music since the mid-2000’s, through releases on Deepblak (the label he co-runs with Aybee) and PAN. His musical universe is one of warping cadences and celestial melody, referencing the bold work of percussionists like Milford Graves & Art Jenkins, the dissonant chords of Motor City Techno and stripped back essence of early Chicago House matched with broken Hard Bop sentiments: all tied together with an aesthetic that sits somewhere between Sun Ra’s omniverse, Jean Giraud Mœbius and Dogon cosmology. Together as Le Graciés, Segalen and Porter make a wholly unclassifiable strain of music that, while containing recognisable elements of each individual’s work, also creates a third entity in the process, which can be heard to stunning effect on their forthcoming debut LP for Firecracker Recordings.

Live support on the night will come from the Yorkshiremen Pitt & Pitt, literal brothers-in-arms and mainstays of the Glasgow underground whose multiple talents can be heard on their involvement with groups such as Golden Teacher and Ultimate Thrush, not to mention countless other collabs with a diverse range of artists.

DJ duties will be supplied by Mother & DJ Crud, who are known together for their Concrete Cabin night – a soundclash of various forms of post-jungle musics and forward-thinking electronics. Apart they have loaned their talents to acclaimed underground institutions of late: Crud dropping recent mixes for Going Good and Slabs of the Tabernacle, and Mother for The Trilogy Tapes and Long Island Electrical Systems.

Escapement – Enya Zia Fortuna & Blair Coron | Curated by Skaiste Klaniute5th August, 2016

Escapement

This newly commissioned live performance portrays a phantasmagorical depiction of labour. The title refers to the 13th century invention of the escapement, an early form of minimal clockwork consisting of a coiled spring and pendulum that allowed it to oscillate at a steady pace. The spread of portable watches played a key part in shaping modern society during the industrial revolution. The clock was used to synchronise labour and quantify productivity. Trapped in a tightly orchestrated cycle of production, Fortuna and Coron invoke and subvert ideas about the repercussions of time, work and discipline in contemporary society.

Enya Zia Fortuna (b. 1992, Kranj, Slovenia) is a visual artist based in Glasgow. Enya works primarily with performance, yet integrating elements from theatre, film and installation.

Blair Coron (b.1991, Fife, Scotland) is a musician/composer based in Glasgow. His musical inspiration comes from a multitude of avenues, ranging from folk, post rock, classical, minimalism, hints of electronic and ambience.

Tickets are free and can be booked here via Eventbrite.

Escapement is presented as part of the 2016 Graduate Degree Show at the Glasgow School of Art
