EVENT: Weird Garden

First Thursday evening of experimental sound and vision curated by Fine Art student Raisa Watkiss returns to The Cass.
Date: 5 April 2018

After the success of last year's visit by Lincoln's Weird Garden experimental music night, an extended and enhanced version is returning to The Cass. The event, once again curated by BA Fine Art student Raisa Constance Watkiss, will feature a programme of emerging sound and vision artists plus projections between 2.55pm and 8.45pm.

Weird Garden was invented by Dex, aka Tape Noise, as part of his $ell' Story. The idea of Weird Garden is a 'weed garden' of less-commercially orientated plants and flora, firmly rooted in the underground of unusual genres. Weird Garden events usually take place at Decimal Place, in Lincoln.

Artists playing in the main room on the ground floor will include: FLOODLIGHTS, MODULATOR ESP, raxil4, GREY FREQUENCY, TAPE NOISE, MOTEL & NATHAN T DEAN, LOOP CYCLE, YUMAH and SCENTED POETRY with EXPERIMENTAL SONIC MACHINES.

In the Calcutta House basement, there will also be projections from Lincoln Tape Club (LTC). LTC started in October 2013 as a chance for people to show and play their recordings, films, videos, slides and records. The Basement artists are Raisa Watkiss and Andy Benn offering a nostalgic commentary, found images, slides abandoned at car boot sales, a dialogue on social and cultural history on outdated technologies. Installations include film, slides, photography, super8 projections and sounds.

A Weird Garden zine and a booklet will be available at this event.

Full schedule and artist biographies can be found on Eventbrite.
