Peter Rehberg’s totemic experimental label Editions Mego have announced a day festival at sunny Bexhill-On-Sea.
The 20130511 event will take place on May 11 at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion, and sees Mego invite along some of their biggest hitters for a day of avant-garde excursions. The formidable Fennesz will toast last year’s Fa 2012, his first release on Mego in a decade, with a headline set. Hugely prolific noisemaker Kevin Drumm is lined up to appear, and the entirely inimitable multi-disciplinary artist Russell Haswell will also play. snd’s Mark Fell will perform live, and his partner-in-crime Mat Steel will DJ, as will PAN’s Bill Kouligas. Other acts on the bill include Wire’s Bruce Gilbert, Locust and Bill Roisz.
eMego sub-label Recollection GRM, dedicated to reissuing works associated with Pierre Schaeffer’s seminal Groupe de Recherche de Musique Concrète collective, will also host a room. A host of storied experimental artists will perform their own interpretations of material from the Recollection GRM catalogue. Robert Hampson of the recently resuscitated Main will perform, Hecker will present an unheard work, and GRM regular Kassel Jaeger will also perform. Luc Ferrari’s Preque Rien and Bernard Parmegiani’s 1975 work De Natura Sonorum will also both get an airing.
Excitingly, every ticket holder will also receive an exclusive CD compilation featuring unreleased material from every artist on the bill. Head to the De La Warr Pavilion website for further ticket information.
