Graeme Durant | Double Day: NIGHT

Publication Date 13 Feb 2015

Friday 13 February 2015 / 19.45-22.00 , BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

Blurring the line between visual art and music Graeme Durant brings his studio soundtrack into the gallery for an evening of live performance in and around his Level 2 exhibition. Selecting from a playlist as diverse as his visual references, the line up includes background Muzak from Joss Humberstone, electronic music from nwavi, vocal harmony/dischord from Charm Offensive and alternative rock duo, That F♥cking Tank.

In their own words Charm Offensive brings you, ‘Leather strap snaps, wet synth smacks, a bulging brain inside a latex trouser wrap. Get inside natural high (wasted) overload. A new Dawn, a bright Bothwell, an emerald Green Susie shining'.

Nwavi has been making electronic music since 1994 under various guises. In a nod to Durant’s exhibition, nwavi will use a stripped-down setup, appropriating various compositional loops that come to hand, resulting in a beat-driven analogue adventure.

That F♥cking Tank are an instrumental noise rock duo from Leeds/Bradford. Andy Abbott plays a specially tuned baritone guitar and James Islip plays drums. TFT have been making music since 2003, performing throughout Europe in a range of spaces, from squats and basements, to established festivals and multi-thousand capacity venues. TFT advocate, test and put into practice the DIY ethos.
