Demdike Stare, Lustmord and Forest Swords announced for inaugural Unsound London bill

Following stints in Poland and New York, Unsound Festival is heading to London for four nights of activites.  

Proceedings will kick off on September 26 with a performance of Demdike Stare‘s Concealed project at the BFI Southbank. The piece, put together in collaboration with cellist/composer Danny Norbury, sees the Modern Love pair working with Krakow’s Sinfonietta Cracovia onan immersive multimedia performance. They’ll be joined by Polish visual/sound artist Anna Zaradny, who’ll treating the audience to an array of pulses, drones and visual trickery.

September 27 will welcome dark ambient figurehead Lustmord, who’ll be performing his first UK solo show in over three decades. His show at The Barbican Centre, St. Luke’s Church promises to be an”immersive” multimedia event, with support from Polish pianist and Adrian Utley collaborator Pianohooligan.

BleeD curate the bill on September 28, with the remarkable Forest Swords taking top billing. The Wirral producer and guitarist’s music is sparse, angular and haunting; there’s a reason why 2010 LP Dagger Paths was our favourite album of the year. He’ll be jointed by experimental German turntablists Durian Brothers and synth manipulator Robert Piotrowicz.

Unsound London will come to a close on Sunday 29 with an assortment of experimental artists at Cafe OTO. Stefan Nemeth of Radian will present his new Innode project, Nicholas Bullen will perform in the wake of his recent album for Type, and BNNT and Stara Rzeka will round out the bill.

Tickets are available from the each respective venue. Unsound proper will run from October 13-20 in Krakow – head here for tickets and further information.
