Gemdays 2009

John Richards @ GEMdays, Huddersfield, 28/01/2009
D. Konstrukt
The opening night sees electroacoustic artist John Richards take to the stage, a space filled with DIY electronics, wires, candles, a meat grinder, silver wig, mysteriously modified baked bean tins and other paraphernalia. The set up looks great. John pads quietly under a big screen and onto the stage.

Futurist musicians

Manifesto of Futurist Musicians
Balilla Pratella
I appeal to the young. Only they should listen, and only they can understand what I have to say. Some people are born old, slobbering spectres of the past, cryptograms swollen with poison. To them no words or ideas, but a single injunction: the end.
