A very rare London performance by the enigmatic Newcastle-based pioneers of post-industrial electro-acoustic ambient music, whose numerous live and recorded works of "unreserved beauty" (The Wire) over 40 years have given them the status of "the ultimate cult electronic band" (Ambient Music Guide). Visit https://en-gb.facebook.com/zovietfrance/ for more. And of course tune into their weekly radio show on Resonance, A Duck in a Tree, Saturdays at 7pm.
Few musicians can claim to have made such a mark on the British music scene over the last thirty years. As well as co-founding the influential Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier has also forged a remarkable solo career as a songwriter and has collaborated with the likes of Mouse On Mars, Atlas Sound, The High Llamas, Blur and Common.

Kate Carr is a London-based composer and field recordist whose work uses sound to explore the spaces we create together. She is particularly interested in shared public spaces, and the ways we deploy sound to connect, occupy, immerse and remove ourselves from locations, events and each other. Her live work is centred on objects, chance events and textures. She's recently been nominated for aa prestigious Arts Foundation Award. Kate Carr also runs the label Flaming Pines.

Bruce Gilbert was a founding member of the influential and experimental art-punk band Wire, then branched out into electronic music, performance art, music production, and DJing during the band's extended periods of inactivity. Gilbert left Wire in 2004 and has since been focusing on solo work and collaborations with visual artists and fellow experimental musicians. Tonight he's our special guest DJ!
