Nicholas Bullen – Universal Detention Centre

...

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Napalm Death’s infamous Scum album. In homage to the masterful Grindcore scripture, Supersonic 2017 has commissioned a special performance by Nicholas Bullen, originator of Napalm Death, with ‘Universal Detention Centre ’Nicholas Bullen. A new piece fusing electronic noise and exploratory vocalisations. Created from samples of the first side of the Napalm Death ‘Scum’ album from 1987and a cassette of the first ever Napalm Death rehearsal in 1981, the performance combines the physicality of extreme electronic music with the politicised approach of Napalm Death to produce a piece which could be described as ‘anarchist electronics’. Expect abrasive walls of harsh electronic sound, savage frequency attacks, agitated dynamic shifts, brutal rhythmic pulses and vocal ejaculations.

Laniakea

...

Laniakea is the galactic gospel trio of Massimo Pupillo (Zu) and Daniel O’ Sullivan (Ulver etc.) and Jessica Moss (A Silver Mt. Zion). Cosmic hymns and atomised riffs slowed and stretched to unveil a pantheon of sound drawing on a rich tapestry of influences ranging from the plainchant of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice Coltrane’ s Ashram tapes to the monolithic bass frequencies of Godflesh. “An eerie fugual cascade, like a choir arriving from a point beyond death” the music of Laniakea rumbles with the primal forces of the earth while resounding with something both celestial and ominous.
This performance at Supersonic will include visuals by artist,  Mark Titchner
