Previously at the ICA - Events
18 Feb 2012
Over the past two years, Factory Floor have emerged as one of the most potent and original live forces in contemporary British music. For their performance at the ICA, Factory Floor aim to create their own improvised soundtrack in response to Dan Tombs visual response to the Themersons seminal film The Eye and The Ear - their own imaginative interpretation of visualising sound back in 1944.
Based in a former sweat shop in North London, the trio of Gabe Gurnsey, Dominic Butler and Nik Colk Void construct a new form that builds on the pioneering rhythms and sonic textures of early industrial groups, the heavier end of techno, and contemporary electronica. ‘Untitled’EP, their first release on Blast First Petite, was voted one of NME’s best albums of 2010. Their latest 'Two Different Ways' was released in Nov 2011 on 12" by DFA.
Dan Tombs has been working with Factory Floor providing visceral psychedelic video projections for their live shows. His practice explores the obsolete redundant and glitched aesthetics and has an established practice in gallery based films, live visuals and music videos, having recently worked with Luke Abbott, Jon Hopkins and Walls amongst others. He has also exhibited in the US, Japan and Europe.
