On Thursday 12 September on the SNFCC's Panoramic Steps, May Roosevelt's electronic soundscapes meet Mechanimal’s beats, as part of the Music Escapades concert series.
The composer, producer and thereminist May Roosevelt presents live her album Junea, casting us into a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic parallel universe that takes the artist’s experimentation to new heights. The ethereal vocals and code-like verses paint the portrait of the album’s main persona, Junea, and her digital world. Bridges made of crystalline electronic sounds and pixels fuse reality with fantasy, creating a multilayered sound environment where synths and powerful beats reign supreme.
Industrial audiovisual band Mechanimal returns to the stage after a hiatus from recording and touring, featuring its original dual line-up, Giannis Papaioannou and Freddie F. Bringing their theatrical vocals, pulsing sequences and distorted guitar riffs onstage, they will attempt to deconstruct motorik drone 'n' roll to its raw materials, just as they have defined it over the last decade. In addition to the two tracks from the band's new single, the set will feature tracks from across their discography, showcasing the groundbreaking creative identity of Mechanimal.
