SOUND ART TRIENNIAL
8th, 9th, 10th February 2018 – Electrowerkz, London
(UK) ➣ Industrial / Dark Ambient
Continuing a project first started in the 1980’s founding member Dave Kirby brings an onslaught of industrial soundscapes, pounding drums and a dystopian vision of a world committed to destroying itself.
Comprising a mixture of harsh noise and power electronics with a harder and heavier percussive beat than before Satori enter 2018 with a collection of new songs “dispossession” based on the physical and mental disconnect facing everyone in the modern world. A constant pervasive undercurrent of violence, the feeling of a society on the brink of a total meltdown and the fears and torments of the powerless individual.
Satori was formed in Margate, Kent by Dave Kirby and Robert Maycock in 1984. Originally called Psychopath.
Satori have released material on Zeal SS, Broken Flag, Functional Records, Cold Spring Records, Dogma Chase, Reverse Records, Attenuation Circuit and many more.
Recent projects include collaborating with Lorenzo Abattoir (Nascitari) and a total remix of Dave Phillips’ “Homo Animalis” cd.
These are artists who want to push you as a listener, viewer, toucher, taster. They feel the competing powers that define human and inhuman experience and press this open the audience. This is work that requires the presence of the artist and the engagement – sometimes submission – of the public. Your senses will thank you for the embrace that is DELIQUIUM.
