'A Room of One’s Own'
'A Room of One’s Own' is the first collaboration between Cherche Encore and the sixtyseven collective hosted between Deptford Cinema and the flat above on Friday 18th August from 7pm.
This event is dedicated to the safe bedroom space, where music and friendship occur. We will meet and talk and experience DIY electronic music and ideas of hosting inclusive events in familiar spaces; we intend for this to be your space away from consumer nightlife culture to engage in the creation of sonic spaces.
The evening will begin with a livecoding with TidalCycles meetup. This does not require any prior knowledge of computing, livecoding or music production. Just bring your laptop, headphones and an open mind to discuss and test ideas.
Performances will take place between Deptford Cinema and the upstairs flat’s roof terrace that will become stage for acts exploring ideas around private and public space, sonic experimentation and the sharing economy of a communal car park.
We will ensure you are safe in the space and we will help you participate if you feel isolated. We will ensure talking space isn’t limited to privileged voices and we will prioritize this platform for those whose have intersecting oppressions. 0 tolerance for sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or ableism.
If you would like to join upstairs performance and/or workshop, please email to RSVP as this is an invitation only event.
Deptford Cinema will be open for the duration of the evening from 6.30pm until close.
Hortense / 'Less Scared'
A half of Cherche Encore, Hortense is going to use live coding as a way to talk about how struggling with one’s mental health affects artistic practice.
Jack James / 'Instructions to The Oval Car Park'
Drawing from a period of social research into the locality surrounding Music Hackspace's home in Containerville during 2015, Jack James presents his text-based-score, Instructions to The Oval Car Park. Through a performance lecture Jack will explore his use of compositional narrative to document ad hoc social conventions used to navigate The Oval in Bethnal Green, London as an informal car park.‘When parking on The Oval, drivers park each other in and leave their mobile phone number on the car dashboard. Upon receiving calls, drivers leave nearby workplaces to let each other out, with cars moving and re parking periodically each day.’
Thanks to Penny Klein for the drawings.
