Immersion, the electronic project of Minimal Compact's Malka Spigel and Wire's Colin Newman lead the bill at Audio Visual Night #2

New River Studios in North London will present 'Audio Visual Night #2' on July 7, with performances from Immersion, Adrena Adrena and more.

Immersion is the project of Colin Newman, the frontman Wire, and Malka Spigel, the founder of Israeli-Belgian band Minimal Compact. They will perform with visuals from Noriko Okaku, whose work explores the eclecticism and mystery/strangeness underlying everyday objects and actions

"Immersion is the purest 'version' of Malka and me," says Newman, "because it's not her project, and it’s not my project: it's our project. And musically, it's also got a kind of purity. You can't tell who’s playing or what’s playing."

Also performing will be Adrena Adrena, a collaborative project between E-Da Kazuhisa, formerly of Japanese band Boredoms, and visual artist Daisy Dickinson. Their live performance features an 8 foot white sphere with a video mapped onto it. Kazuhisa plays drums while Dickinson live mixes visuals onto the ball.

Filmmaker Karel Doing will also provide a special 'Expanded Cinema' performance, while DJ sets come courtesy of Grimm Grimm and Warp Records' Mark Clifford.

Tickets are priced between £7 and £10. You can find out more here.
