After/Hours/Drop/Box presents a new collaboration between visual artist Steffen Levring and DJ and musician Iydes.
For The Advisory the artists have developed a new live sound and video performance work. Part brutal, part chant-like and intimate, sequences are built-up and collapsed, allowing for improvisation and new interactions between sound and moving image on the night.
Iydes (Joe Brooks) is a London-based electronic music producer and sound designer. His first EP, Phase, was released in March 2014 (Dandelion Lotus) and his second, Interior, is due out in November (GETME!). He co-hosts the NTS radio show Tropical Waste (est. 2010) and its bi-monthly club night at the Waiting Room in Stoke Newington. His latest project - for A/H/D/B - is a semi-improvised live performance which responds to visuals created by video artist Steffen Levring.
Steffen Levring (b. 1982) is a filmmaker working in London and Copenhagen. Using a variety of recording devices, agitating techniques and technological confines, he explores the physical limitations of video and its direct relationship to sound. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, with recent screenings and live performances at BALTIC 39, Milton Keynes Gallery, TOP KINO, Vienna and CPH:DOX, Copenhagen.
After/Hours/Drop/Box is a commissioning platform at the intersection of music, video and live performance and acts as a testing ground for new collaborative projects.
A/H/D/B is a project by artist John Lawrence and was initially installed as an exhibition at ANDOR in 2012 and is supported through public funding from Arts Council England.
