In Either/Or the principle of exclusivity undergoes détournement by a diverse range of invited participants to either celebrate as its 2-state logic cuts across a stacked earth, or contest such sovereignty in precipitating each ghostly flip or flop glimpsed struggling against its brutal foreclosure.

In an evening of unemployable expenditure, from the trauma of the binary to its ontic co-constituency, Either/Or includes talks and performances by:

Claude Heiland-Allen
±
Claude Heiland-Allen is an artist from London interested in the complex emergent dynamics of simple systems and mathematical aesthetics.

Description of work: Alice and Bob have a conversation, where Alice's live voice is replaced by Bob's recorded voice, and Bob's live voice is replaced by Alice's recorded voice. The replacement is at best imperfect, but hopefully Alice and Bob can communicate on some level.

Jamka
±
Hailing from the active Slovakian noise scene, London-based electronic maverick girl-boy duo Jamka forge a rhythmic whirlwind of fractured structures, unfolding the mind into kinetic space for the body music to come. Using synthesizers, sequencers, samplers and various FX boxes, they touch on the darker and rhythmically complex side of techno, industrial and noise music, approaching it in their own uncompromising way. Their last album of these long-year members of Bratislava-based Urbsounds collective, which on the noisier side of analogue electronics, was released within renowned Sub Rosa's New Series Framework.
