Scanner (live) - Rost - Glasgow

We welcome to Rost Scanner for a special one off gig and screening by Chris Dooks.SCANNER (British artist Robin Rimbaud) has been intensely active in sonic art, producing concerts, installations and recordings for over a quarter of a century, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres. He scored the hit musical comedy Kirikou & Karaba (2007) and Narnia ballet (2015) based on the popular children's book, Philips Wake-Up Light (2009), and was the first sound artist to be commissioned by Tate Modern London in 2005. In 2019 he designed the sound for the Cisco telephone systems used in offices around the world, whilst his sound work in Vex House in London was voted as RIBA House of the Year. His work Salles des Departs is permanently installed in a working morgue in Paris. Committed to working with cutting edge practitioners he has collaborated with Bryan Ferry, Wayne MacGregor, Mike Kelley, Michael Nyman, Steve McQueen, Laurie Anderson and Hussein Chalayan."Scanner manages to inject a form of music that is often distant and impersonal with warmth, human frailty and humour." The GuardianPresenting a sonic vision of a restless inner city, Scanner weaves a symphonic live collage of sounds, shifting, sumptuous, melancholic melodies, and crushingly corpulent rhythms, drifting towards a vanishing point of past, present and future. In 2019 he won a New Music Scotland Award for his Lost at Sea project in East Neuk.www.scannerdot.com_______On support is SUE SUKI (Alicia Matthews) a Glasgow based artist working with sound and installation, one half of LAPS and regularly takes over the NTS airwaves once a month for a rhythm 'n' gloom showdown. Most recently she was included in WEAPONISE YOUR SOUNDS 2 comp out on Optimo Music. https://soundcloud.com/suezuki_______Dr Chris Dooks (1971) is a sound artist with a strong interest in community audio and wellbeing work and is an honorary research fellow at Edinburgh University. Dooks pitched the idea of a South Bank Show on Scanner to Melvyn Bragg’s team in 1997 and the 15minute work is still online. The two have remained in contact since. For tonight’s performance Chris will be mixing multiple sounds over voices from The School of Scottish Studies and from other field recording materials concentrating on Reichian phase patterns, voices from Railway workers from ghosted stations and a few surprises. Chris has just finished a sound art commission from Edinburgh Book Festival with sound artist Eleanor Thom.chrisdooks.bandcamp.comDoors at 7pmTickets available via Ticket Tailor
