It’s just less than a month before Kaleidoscopic power duo Warm Digits – who embrace everything from krautrock and electronic disco to distorted noise and free jazz – will be playing a very special gig with help from NARC. and others at Northern Stage on Friday 13th November. Alongside working with Filmbee to create live anologue visuals during the performance, the duo will also be welcoming two of the region’s electronic artists as support.

co¥ᄀpt (or co-opt) is the live coding project of Sean Cotterill, inspired by the Algorave movement. Using the innovative SuperCollider programme, Cotterill uses the language of computers to create entirely improvised experimental dance music. For this even more one-off performance, co¥ᄀpt’s work will be backed by custom made visuals that will respond the sounds Cotterill creates, making for a truly immersive audio-visual experience. Cotterill says that “dancing is optional, but preferred.”

Also supporting on the night will be Pentecostal Party, the one-woman electronic project of Dawn Bothwell. Mixing sedate, down-tempo beats with layered synths, Bothwell creates mesmerising soundscapes that build up and immerse the listener in a world of cacophonous sound. Aided by her own angelic voice – which she loops to create even more depth – Pentecostal Party’s songs will hypnotise you into a trance of lo-fi electronica. “I like how live dru-machines and synths can drive energy out of an audience,” Bothwell says. “I think this is something Warm Digits want too, so I’m looking forward to playing with them, it should be high energy!”

Already set to be an audio-visual feast for the eyes and ears, the inclusion of co¥ᄀpt and Pentecostal Party makes our latest event unmissable for any electronica fan.

Warm Digits and Filmbee, co¥ᄀpt and Pentecostal Party play at Northern Stage, Newcastle on Friday 13th November.
