We'll mark the occasion with a few bells and whistles, no doubt. Our birthday guest will be Pizdetz, on an international tour of Moscow and Todmorden.
Georgios Stenos Frantzios and Stephen Summers from Noisy Toys bring a collection of re-animated miscellany and a cello upstairs. Springs, strings and interesting things with fans and pans and something else that we haven't found yet that would rhyme with them as well. The audience can also contribute to the sonic souffle without even leaving their seats, and we may all enjoy a little public electrocution if there is time.
Yorgo is a sonic scavenger, a fearless explorer of junkyards, hardware stores & kitchens in quest for noise-making treasures. On stage he plays with his home brewed micro-percussion and stringed instruments, amplified objects, turntable and electronics. Off stage he makes audiovisual works, installations and music compositions for instruments & fixed media, while also collaborating with NoisyToys to provide essential sonic scavenging skills to young people.
Steve is a cellist and re-animator who specialises in upcycled instruments and interactive installations. Since starting Noisy Toys in 2007 he has tested thousands of noses all over the country, organ-harvested hundreds of computers and spawned many strange new instruments, often using fans and heat sinks from e-waste. Steve is a regular participant at both the Manchester and Todmorden Noise Upstairs nights.
Before and after their set will be our regular jams. We hope to see you there!
