Talking Birds, makers of extraordinary sights and sounds, invites you to Hatched At The Nest #2 on Friday 24th November, an evening of live performances from artists working in the field of experimental and electronic sound.
The evening will feature work from performers who have recently participated in Talking Birds’ residency programme to experiment with sound creation and performance: Lucifer Sky, Riizbo, Izzy Hadlum & Bar Pandora.
Bar Pandora is an alt-pop artist and producer who uses looping, sampling, field recordings and vocalisation to create compositions which express and explore contradictions of self-policing and self-empowerment contained within the individual – often within herself. Her 2022 self-titled debut EP and subsequent singles have earned Bar Pandora early critical acclaim, with BBC 6 music’s Amy Lamé, Tom Robinson and Steve Lamaqc, BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and The Times being amongst her supporters.
Lucifer Sky is a multidisciplinary artist and performer based in Coventry, UK, delivering an erratic mix of improvised live programming, DIY electronics, drones, loops and found sounds.
Riizbo is the pop-electronica project of Birmingham producer/songwriter and drummer, Matthew Rheeston. Pulling on a variety of influences, from electronica to hip hop, Riizbo fuses angular rhythms and soulful melodies to conjure a searching vulnerability from electrifying pop beats.
Izzy Hadlum is a Coventry-based musician and creative. During her residency at Talking Birds she explored environmental sound art through deep listening, walking and field recording, focussing in particular on the landscape alongside Coventry Canal. Influenced in part by the writings of experimental musician Pauline Oliveros on deep listening and drone, she became fascinated by the nature of urban ‘hum’, how this interacts with the more natural ‘om’ drone, and in turn how this effects our relationship with the urban soundscape that surrounds us.
This is a relaxed performance.
