baconjam X Electric Spring 2018



@Creative Arts Building, Huddersfield University

baconjam X Electric Spring : 23rd February 2018


Katz Mulk is a performance collective featuring the hands; brains; legs & torsos of Andrea Kearney, Ben Knight, Ben Morris & Siân Williams. Pulling together crude electronics; field recordings; narrative fragments; dance & sculpture to create a sticky radiophonic syrup. In the past few years they have played across Europe and released Katzenzungen on Sacred Tapes, & Husks on Singing Knives Records.

Chris Ruffoni is a Huddersfield-based musician making lo-fi electronic music. After spending time composing acousmatic music, he is now interested in creating for/through live performance and improvisation. He describes his work as blurred, cyclical, layered and textural.

Anna Peaker is a visual artist and graphic designer who began working with sound in 2016. Working from a small attic space at home, she uses budget keyboards, drum machines, loops and effects to create microcosmic soundscapes. Sounds are influenced by domestic spaces, how we spend our time in them and escapism from them.

Unfurling Streams launch party and exhibition

The Unfurling Streams CD and limited edition box set launch party.

The CD Unfurling Streams by Monty Adkins with an exhibition of photographs, inspired by the music, made by Stephen Harvey

Hugely successful evening, thank you to everyone who made it. We turned the Kabin into an amazing exhibition space with warm welcomes and wonderful chat.

BJC would like to thank Monty Adkins for allowing BaconJam to organise this event, an enormous privilege to be part of it all.

Also the feedback from those who came was very positive indeed, so thank you for that.

Not forgetting The Coffee Kabin for their support & hospitality – Thank you.
