Aether: Tones and Talks #13

Aether: Tones and Talks #13

With: Radboud Mens, Simon Scott and Alex Jacobs

Everything must go. And so does Aether. This edition will be the final (ir)regular event in this series. It has been an adventurous sonic journey so far. And we’d like to complete it with a guitar-based experience in which our guests will provide us.

Before we introduce our next event’ guests we like to thank all of you who have been supportive to Aether and we like to mention that there will be a grand final event at the Charlois Kunstweekend in june called Aether Sound Trash. But for now:

Radboud Mens
Radboud Mens is a sound-artist from whose work is rooted in and continues to develop within the broadest definition of contemporary music. While his interest in the physical effects of sound on the body gave him a preference for noise in his early work, his later music has contributed to the development of minimal-techno, glitch and experimental dub. Mens uses electronic technology to render audible microscopic sound processes. His sound-world is in a constant state of spatial and temporal flux, and incorporates found sound and influences from the media.
For this evening Radboud will perform his three guitar piece installation. An installation in which he controls three guitars
simultaniously with a computer.

Simon Scott
Simon Scott is a sound artist and multi-instrumentalist living in Cambridge, UK where he runs his KESH Music label. His work in recent years explores a fusion of digital sound manipulation with melodic and organic textures inspired by his interests in sound ecology, human perception, music technology and photography.
He has toured internationally since 1990 (as a member of Slowdive) and has had his compositions featured in a variety of international films, music festivals, theatre productions, sound installations and digital multi-media projects. Scott has collaborated and shared the studio and stage with Nils Frahm, Taylor Deupree, Stephan Mathieu, Marcus Fisher, Lawrence English, The Caretaker, Isan, Sawako, Greg Haines, Fourcolor, The Sight Below, BJ Nilsen, Machinefabriek and many more.
