“Chicks On Speed have an undefinable stance where fine art, graphic design, rock n roll, the avante garde, performance, politics, feminism, electronica, techno and consumerism collide but where the communication of ideas in whatever medium is paramount”
A unique collaboration between internationally acclaimed Berlin based music and performance trio chicks on speed, Birmingham based musicians sand and visual artist ravi deepres, is set to be the highlight of an evenings entertainment at medicine bar, birmingham.
A poster campaign in and around the city centre will be devised, created and implemented by Chicks on Speed, who will be in residence at Capsule/the Medicine Bar, working on installation material for one week prior to the event.
Chicks take on the Beatles during the week, performing on the roof of the Ikon Gallery. All of the artists have been commissioned to work together, prior to the event, Chick A, Chick M and friends providing text, performance and costume with Sand (Satellite Records) Layering musical elements and Birmingham based artist Ravi Deepres providing visual projections.
Saturday night will see the fruits of a two month collaboration – under the title d>generate. The Custard Factory lake is being transformed to house this one-off sonic/visual performance a piece commissioned specifically for the event.

“avant jazz collective Sand suffer from a split personality.Their singles for London satelite label exploit vinyls binary system:play one side and you’re presented with an update of Forth World fusionist John Hassel’s mutant ethodelia and EMC’s spartan vistas. Put the needle to the filp and now you’re locked into feral metal freefall, swept up in sensurround of agitated electronic noise.”

“After his many moves and moods and interludes and so on, so forth and thereafter, Mr Vibert, as Mr Wagon Christ, has ended up producing his first album for his spiritual home-buddies, Ninja Tune. Thoughtfully taking us on a Vibert tour of the past 4 years “Musipal” presents a mixture of new tracks and previously unreleased archive material.”

“You listen to a Bob Dylan record, listen to a Television record, listen to a Kraftwerk record, listen to a Chemical Brothers record and then put it all together. All these are the best people of their day, so if you put it together then you should have the perfect hybrid,”
Richard Warren, Echoboy
