A new collaboration inspired by the structures, psychological impact and theories of modernist architecture.
Last September, Laurel Halo curated the 2019 edition of London’s MODE series, bringing a host of experimental live acts and DJs from around the world to unusual venues across the capital.
FACT was at a derelict venue in Soho’s Great Marlborough Street to capture Formwork, a new audiovisual collaboration between group A’s Tommi Tokyo and Kat Day of The KVB, inspired by the structures, psychological impact and theories of modernist architecture.
While group A experimented on found sounds sourced from construction sites and recorded inside modernist buildings, Kat Day integrated architectural photography by group A with her own 3D digital renders, processed with analogue equipment to create “a feedback loop of architectural distortions”.
While group A currently has a number of releases in the pipeline, all have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, group A recently contributed a track to Never a Land Without People Vol. II, a benefit compilation for non-profit organisation Adalah.
