Performance: patten - Mirage FM View Gallery


For the final, bonus event in this summer’s Dust to Dust programme, London-based artist, musician, designer, and cultural researcher, Damien Roach aka patten presents his ‘Mirage FM’ live AV show.

Reinterpreting tracks from his album of the same name – the world's first made with text-to-audio AI samples – he uses an ultra-flexible system with embedded precision AI audio analysis in order to ‘crate dig in latent space’ during the live event. Like a rogue scientist crossed with a cybernetic soundsystem DJ, he makes hallucinogenic, mutated audiovisual remixes of the album material in real-time.

The live AV floods the stage with tripped-out, hi-tech AI videos; everything from pop to techno, R&B to opera, hip-hop and grime to ambient, all distilled into half-remembered fragmented forms.

Doors and bar from 7pm, performance from 8-9pm.
