Remko Scha's The Machines

Performance

03 Jun 2017

"One of the definitive modern NYC guitar works" (Byron Coley, The Wire 231).

Coinciding with his solo exhibition at Nottingham gallery TG, Remko Scha's The Machines will make their first UK performance since playing at the ICA in 1983.

The Machines consist of mechanical devices that play suspended electric guitars via lengths of rope. A composer controls the intensity of the machines which in turn affects the sound & rhythm. Since Scha's death in 2015, The Machines are currently operated by Dutch composer and musician Samuel Vriezen.

This performance forms part of Object Performance, a 6 month programme of performance delivered in partnership with Primary, Nottingham.

 

7.30-9pm. Doors open 7pm

Free. The Space

 

TG would like to thank Arts Council England, The Ampersand Foundation and the Embassy of the Netherlands, London for their generous support.
