Event Description

Electricity and Ghosts

Ghosts and machines, as they were imagined in the early 1920s, when Lankins slid under window panes and families soothed their babies with Amperes from the first electric servants.

Featured in this month's Bizarre Magazine, Spacedog, Brighton's finest mechanical and musical experimentalists, will be playing a selection of death ballads, darkest folk songs and twisted takes on the European song book. Live theremin, vocals, robotic dolls, waterphone, saw and assorted home-spun electromechanical oddities. With spellbinding visuals from Roger Spy and Dennis Da Silva. This event is an ArtHertz collaboration for the Rushes Soho Shorts Festival.

The show will include a live performance from two of Angliss' creations: dolly therematrix Clara 2.0 and the Ealing Feeder, a 1920s-style robotic carillon, first seen at the Kinetica 2010 Art Fair. You may have seen Spacedog demonstrating wax recording on the Edison phonograph, or playing robotic bells and other contraptions, at one of Brighton's marvellous Steampunk nights, at the Marlborough Theatre.

At this event, you can also hear more about the Electricity and Ghosts project, staged by ArtHertz and focusing on 1930s London icon Battersea Power Station. Coming soon to a large, decommissioned turbine hall near you!

Other news: Spacedog will be reprising their Uncanny Valley set with the marvellous Professor Elemental, London, 26-28 August. An evening exploring our very human fears of almost human objects - from golems to ventriloquists' dummies. Watch this space for details.

*6 cogs inside every Mk I iPod
