Double Bill: Katie Kim :: Natalia Beylis

Thu 19 September, 8:00pm

In a late but welcome addition to our new season we present two of our 2019 Music Artists in Residence in a special one off concert.

Katie Kim & Natalia Beylis 

Katie Kim: Mood is central to the expansive musical landscape of Katie Kim. Darkened corners, icy atmospheres and hypnotic knife edge soundscapes. Piano chords stretch to infinity, silence is employed as devastating punctuation, while the voice, in it’s salience is all the scattered beauty a glimmer of light can illuminate. Cinematic in scope and tectonic in delivery, It's as deep as you want or need it to be. A slowcore waltz at the bottom of the ocean, steeped in gloomy ambience. Tension tugs at the heart with this euphoric exploration into the depths of darkness and light.“Holding my hand now the tides incoming/Make us a shield so the light won’t get in.”

Natalia Beylis: Whoosh Whoosh... Electric Piano in Stereo with Manipulated Field Recordings.

Natalia's work revolves somewhere between sonic story-teller, composer and multi-instrumental musician. In her recordings and performances she layers seemingly incongruous sounds atop of each other to spawn strange juxtapositions and garbled parallels.
