Beatrice Dillon & Keith Harrison present Ecstatic Material at Caustic Coastal, Manchester, 11 February 2019, from £8 - Book now

Sound and substance collide in Ecstatic Material, a rare collaboration between two original thinkers: musician and producer Beatrice Dillon and interdisciplinary artist Keith Harrison.

Beatrice Dillon makes wildly experimental electronic music whose interests lie in the meeting place between the synthetic and the organic. Her compositions are influenced by everything from techno to avant-garde jazz to electro-acoustic music, and have been championed the world over.

Dillon finds a perfect collaborative partner in artist Keith Harrison, who is restlessly explorative in his own field. Well-known for his work with ceramics (see his collaboration with Napalm Death), Harrison’s practice involves changing the properties of raw materials (or the perception of them) in a way that is unpredictable.

Ecstatic Material is the culmination of an exciting collaboration between the pair in which they have combined their esoteric practices. In a warehouse-cum-gallery in Salford, they’ll present a dynamic sound sculpture which, at the hands of Dillon and Harrison, will come to life before the audience. Involving Play-Doh, coloured light and sound synthesis, this performance will be truly unique, with volatility embedded into the very concept.

Intrigued about how this transformation of sound and substance might play out? Let your curiosity get the better of you at Caustic Coastal on the 11 February.
