Wave Folder Records and Live at Verve is proud to present amazing artists at label launch party! Wave Folder Launch Party coincides with Space F!ght Sci-Fi release and RPE Duo’s Playground EP. We will have lots of surprises for guests including our favourite paper craft art forms.
Event is happening on 29th May in Verve’s Bar in Leeds. Starting at 9pm. Featured artists include:
Space F!ght is an audio and visual live experience that explores the interaction between 3D projection mapping and improvised music. Drawing upon influences from a wide range of music styles, Space F!ght blends saxophone (James Mainwaring), percussion (Enrico Bertelli), guitar (Tom Adams) and electronic hardware (Radek Rudnicki) to create an unique and powerful sound, visualised through with custom made 3D projections (Jakub Hader). To emphasize effect of the visualisations, Space F!ght is using a custom made modular scenography for visualisations/3D mapping that reacts in real time to the improvised music. Space F!ght are Jazz Ambassadors of the North and recipients of Emerging Excellence Award.
Space F!ght are promoting their Sci-Fi EP released on Wave Folder Records as paper craft pyramids.
RPE Duo is a live act that explores interaction between trumpet and live electronics. Electronic grooves combine hip- hop with techno/dub in an experimental manner. The trumpet interacts with electronics, aiming to contrast/duplicate the electronic timbre. Improvisations slowly develop in time into dense noise or fragmented pieces. None of the material is scored however each sound is carefully crafted. Visuals used in the show, expose how limited material can entertain and evolve, these produced during the concert range from clear to abstract images.
RPE Duo are coming to UK to promote their Playground EP release on Wave Folder Records.
