Yuko Araki (visuals by Daisy Dickinson) + Steckdose
Yuko Araki is at the forefront of an emerging scene of young female artists from Japan shedding new light on noise, experimental electronics and post-industrial techno. Drawing inspiration from ’70s prog-rock and free jazz, Araki’s approach to her cacophonous compositions is expansive and fluid, oscillating between tension and release, euphoria and dysphoria, abandon and restraint.
Visual artist and director Daisy Dickinson lends an acid-laced visual response to Araki’s euphoric cacophony.
Support from Steckdose - improvised electronics, tape loops, drones and field recordings from Teesside via Birmingham.
