    GRAND DEPARTY: Wanda Group / Illum Sphere / Rough Fields / Echo Of Light / Crystal Mirrors / + film screenings

    Midday til 11:30pm
    Fuse Art Space
    5-7 Rawson Place, BD1 3QQ

    To celebrate the peloton blurring past Bradford like a chimp on a rocket, we're holding an all day festival of music, film and cycling at Fuse Art Space.

    We're kicking off at midday with the best ever Bollywood cycling film "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar", followed by Matt Hulse's epic bike adventure "Dummy Jim" and Louis Malle's classic Tour documentary "Vive Le Tour".

    Later on we've got WANDA GROUP and ILLUM SPHERE in the house, joined by Rough Fields and, thanks to a whole pannier or help from our friends at Folklore Tapes, the amazing optical theatre, sound projection and light puppetry of Echo Of Light and Crystal Mirrors.

    Add to that: top drawer local ales and mouthwatering food from Bare Plume. And did we say it's free? It's free.


    "As Wanda Group, Louis Johnstone creates beautiful, decayed landscapes of tape crackle, hiss and distortion... With a quick-fire succession of cryptically titled records, accompanied with greyscale collage artwork built from images of fragmented rock, he's established a particular aesthetic that's both unique and tough to pin down. Certain elements coincide with the styles and ideals of musique concrete, or artists like Joseph Hammer, Atrax Morgue and the school of industrial/experimental/minimal cassettes that cropped up in the late 80s and early 90s... " (The Quietus)
    Restless as a DJ and adventurous in his productions, Illum Sphere (Ryan Hunn) is both a key player in the Manchester music scene and a unique presence on the global stage. Deliberately oblique in his approach, he’s had a vital impact on electronic music. Releases on Manchester’s Fat City, Martyn’s label 3024, Pinch’s Tectonic and Young Turks.


    Rough Fields has already released two albums and an EP this year, including the first ever solo version of Steve Reich's "Music For 18 Musicians". "Armed with a diverse range of both organic and inorganic textures, Rough Fields (a.k.a. James Birchall), crafts a warm, voluminous sound... shimmering guitar riffs emerge alongside a thumping bassline, with subdued vocal bits sparsely strewn throughout the soothing mix." (XLR8R)


    Echo Of Light are Alison Cooper and Sam Mcloughlin (formerly N. Racker), joined by Folklore Tapes dude David Chatton Barker.
    Crystal Mirrors is Alison Cooper (Magpahi / N. Racker / Bird Records / Folklore Tapes) and Gwendolen Osmond (Trianglecuts).
