This week: Taste The Doom at OT301
As a precursor to the Sonic Acts Festival programme (23-26 February), every Wednesday leading up to it will offer a guided tour of the The Noise of Being exhibition in the afternoon, and then present a different special event in the evening. For this Wednesday 8 February we have Taste The Doom at OT301, combining two of the most delightful things in life: excellent whisky and a splendid mix of doom metal. Taste a hand-picked selection of outstanding whiskies, introduced to you one by one, while listening to a selected mix of songs matched to accompany each. The event includes live performances by EISBEIN and Puce Mary. Buy Tickets Timetable: 19:00 Doors open 19:30 Taste The Doom 22:00 Performances (EISBEIN + Puce Mary) EISBEIN (Benny Nilsen & Gert-Jan Prins) BJ Nilsen is a Swedish composer and sound artist based in Amsterdam. His work primarily focuses on the sounds of nature and how they affect humans. Recent work has explored the urban acoustic realm and industrial geography in the Arctic region of Norway and Russia. Gert-Jan Prins focuses on the sonic and musical qualities of electronic noise and percussion and investigates its relationship with the visual. He lives and works in Amsterdam. Puce Mary An unrelenting fear of dread and coldness penetrates the avant-garde power electronics of Copenhagen-based artist Puce Mary, the nom de plume of Frederikke Hoffmeier. The Danish noisenik first came to prominence in 2010 with the collaborative release Lucia with Lust for Youth’s Loke Rahbek, on Danish label Posh Isolation. That same year, she released the Piss Flowers cassette, which showcased her unremitting use of feedback, noise, and guttural screams to climatic effect.
