Event Details


✖ BOTBORG (Germany)

DESTROY VANCOUVER is a series of experimental music nights that bring together some of the world’s most influential improvisers with local sound artists and musicians. DV is curated by drummer and sound artist John Brennan and presented by VIVO Media Arts Centre.

BOTBORG is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent colour and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience’s mind and body. Botborg work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless.


QUEEN OF NO (Shearing Pinx)

KEVIN ROMAIN’S FREE TIME TRIO | Circa 1964 inspired “third stream” jazz. Fast cymbal beats and gratuitous shred. Kevin Romain: Drumkit (, Nikko Whitworth: Double Bass, Dominic Conway: Tenor Saxophone

RRKKTTTSS | Equal parts sonic exploration and performance art, rrkktttss is the electro-acoustic project of Bill John Batt (eschatons, fake jazz, softess, aerosol constellations). Utilizing a selection of semi-working yet mostly dying amplifiers rrkktttss demonstrates the aural interconnectedness of a room through placement, pushing and pulling of attached microphones and sound sculptures in search of satisfying tone. Through a culmination of nervous energy, dedicated listening and body positioning rrkktttss physically displays the sonic capabilities of a given space.

WATERS is a solo project encompassing minimal guitar and vocal based pieces. The instruments act as a base for signal and texture, becoming, with process, only remnants and figures of their former selves. Melodies and arrangements fall into a veiled response from tactile measures. A set can be an examination of the guitar as a machine as much as a melodic instrument. Waters is the solo endeavour of Lindsey Hampton. Begun in 2011 it and has taken on a number of different forms, including collaborative pieces, recordings and long format installations. Hampton is a multidisciplinary artist and designer who lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
