Sixteen Faces - Grant Thomas (UK)
There are Sixteen Faces to our psyche and if we’re lucky we will only truly know one of them in totality. Primal, spiritual and psychedelic sounds breathe within all of us and are our key to unity. Listen as we bridge the gaps and try to connect to see the infinite, together as one. Past and present, male and female, borderless and unified. Join us tonight for a sound bath to cleanse your wounded soul.

What are you doing later?
Lofthaus (the duo of Thomas D Barnes and Henry Gillett) ask you this. Algebra of Need's stronghold techno project have been challenging the public with such questions since there prototype debut EP 'Alive With Pleasure.' Working within the realms of polyrhythmic patterns and unbound by traditional arrangements, their tracks are subversive in nature with a complexity that punctuates there ideals with out straying from classical techno conventions.
The live presentation is a step forward in modern club exhibition. Completely improvised and built to confound, Lofthaus channel the stage presence of both band members past - a stance waning on common club mechanics and mannerisms. At the core is the studio sound, distilled into pattern and tempo specific cuts that are looped, chopped and bastardised to full effect and layered with oceans of drones. The spirit of lust and passion is accentuated with accompanying visuals from AON artist Marie De Cuir. Lofthaus is the salacity of 21st century youth electronics.
Marie De Cuir
In house artist and one third of Algebra of Need, Marie's work is informed by the streets of his childhood. Not the idilic boulevards portrayed in film, but the real passages filled with foul odour and forgotten creatures of the night which line the beauty that is the 'city of love'. There is a certain vexatious to both his music and his art, confronting and burdensome, a sort of a brass knuckle under a lacy glove.
