“It will be more like a jazz club, in the future.”
For Year of Making 2016, Chris Smith, DJ and founder of CPU Records, is putting on an event that wouldn’t normally happen in Sheffield. Perhaps more readily accessible in London, New York or Berlin, Chris is arranging and promoting a music performance by a number of internationally acclaimed pioneering artists in central Sheffield.
The event will feature performances by:
Okkyung Lee, a South Korean cellist, improviser and composer and now established resident of New York’s music scene.
Mark Fell, Rotherham born music producer and artist, known for synthesising musical styles, including house, electronica and techno, with particular emphasis on algorithmic and mathematical systems.
Alex McLean, a Sheffield based leader in algorithmic music and performance.
Alexandra Cardenas, Colombian born composer and improviser, now based in Berlin, with recent work including live coding performances.
The event is about illuminating this style of music which is happening in Sheffield, but doesn’t regularly feature in the mainstream nightlife.
“Sheffield has a lot to boast about, with a strong music history, but there is too much flying under the radar.”
