The Cube in Bristol, United Kingdom

‘As if, instead of a mixing desk, King Tubby used a building’

Following successful stays by Richard Youngs & Luke Fowler, Grouper and Heatsick, the next guests in deep residence at The Cube are Canadian artist-alchemists Eric Chenaux (Constellation Records) and Eric Cazdyn (author, filmmaker and Distinguished Professor of Aesthetics and Politics at Toronto University). Eric & Eric are currently playing The Cube like none before them…be part of an unprecedented live Cube In Dub this coming Saturday.

The very special, 65 minute-long music/video installation that will premiere in the auditorium has been created in The Cube over the past week and a half, and features an innovative and beguiling mix of recorded and live images (shot by Cazdyn) and soundtrack (performed on location by Chenaux). As the film plays on Saturday, its sonic elements will be replayed live across speakers placed all over the building then re-fed back over the original mix… a film made in and of the building, with The Cube alive in sound.
