Making Waves at Sage Gateshead

Brighter Sound

Making Waves at Sage Gateshead, Newcastle 24 August 2018 Entrance is free

The next event promises an audio adventure created by a stellar line-up of musical innovators. Afrodeutsche is synonymous with moody, Detroit-leaning electro-techno. Born out of hardware jams, the machine music of her debut album Break Before Make (released on Manchester’s notorious Skam Records) is effortlessly cool. She is joined by Caro C, whose work merges cutting edge electronics with organic sounds. Also joining will be analogue gear-lover Mandy Wigby, who is as passionate a sound designer as she is a composer. Finally, the wildly inventive sound and visual artist Vicky Clarke will add a future-leaning, boundary-pushing twist to the mix. Co-founder of Noise Orchestra, Clarke’s previous work has involved handmade electronic instruments, sound sculptures and human-machine interaction.

After the performance, these four artists will be joined in conversation by the Mercury Prize-nominated Nadine Shah, whose commanding and brooding music is often described as a blend between PJ Harvey and Nick Cave. With her latest post-punk album Holiday Destination bearing its fangs at poisonous politicians, the refugee crisis and Islamophobia, Shah is a strong and relevant voice in the music industry. Sure to lead a fascinating discussion with this innovative group of artists, this is not an event to miss.
