Reliably informed

It’s just a little over a week before we bring you the Razmataz Lorry Excitement album launch gig at Northern Stage and alongside our headline act, we’re also bringing you what should be a spellbinding set from RLE collaborator and electronic space horror maestro Nathalie Stern. Nathalie will be working with Peter McAdam’s iCoda Software to present a hypnotic audio-visual experience.

By using sounds – which can include voice, music and background noise – iCoda creates a unique artistic gallery that reacts to the volume and amplitude of the sounds fed through it. In essence, the louder the sound you put into iCoda, the images displayed multiply and become more layered. In the future, Peter wants to make the software artificially intelligent, so that no one image from your galleries is repeated within the artwork. McAdam will be working alongside Nathalie to create unique, one-off visuals for her set supporting RLE. If preview shots teased by Nathalie recently are anything to go by, then the set is sure to be a mystical, intriguing exploration of sound and vision, which perfectly fits in with the doom-inflected loop mastery of Stern’s music.

In other audio-visual news, if you wanted to know what we had in store for in-between the sets by Nathalie and RLE, then you’re in for a treat. We’ve been lining up a playlist of videos from local bands and artists past and present from a variety of genres to celebrate the talent on our doorstep. We’ve already confirmed videos from Hyde & Beast, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Young Rebel Set, Yellow Creatures, Smoove and Turrell, Shields, Goy Boy McIlroy, Kobadelta, Humanism and many more. Ranging from artistic to non-stop fun, the videos will be showing off some of the best that the region has to offer.

The Razmataz Lorry Excitement Album Launch with NOVAK Collective, Nathalie Stern, iCoda Software and Peter Brewis DJ set takes place on Saturday 18th July at Northern Stage, Newcastle.
