Elaine Close on trumpet and vinyl DJ Ole Rudd.

Vinyl crackles, a locked groove, plastic waves breaking upon the shore of a new continent ‘Synthetica’, rising from a sea of glass. It’s the dawn of the twentieth century and a new eco-material is appearing, promising a glorious democracy worldwide. During the 1930’s the scintillation of cellophane crystalises a modern era of Freudian advertising. By the end of the century, the horror of the Pacific Garbage Patch is the new continent manifested in our oceans

Friday 12th February at 7pm
