Lostbahnhof In Translation
Saturday March 14th, LIFE, 2-4 Old St, EC1V 9AA, 9pm-2am, £4
So we’re doing another party on Saturday March 14th. Really excited about this one. The venue is LIFE Bar on Old St (Nearest Tube Barbican!), in the basement of an excellent Japanese Sushi restaurant.
In the second room of LIFE bar, which doubles up as a shop selling all manner of Japanese goodies and gizmos during the day, we are teaming up with Shook magazine to host some very special Silent Concerts. Between 9pm and 12am a number of very special guests, including experimental touch electronics specialists Oscillatorial Binnage, Clause Four (DC Recordings), Mr Beatnick (Shhhhh) and others, will be performing to audiences of 20 at a time, streaming audio direct to headphones via wireless. E-MU, one of the world’s top musical instrument manufacturers, are kindly lending us a set of their new PIPEline wireless transceivers. This will be the world premiere of the system (the build of the prototypes is taking place two days before the event, so quite literally a premiere).
The Restaurant on the top floor of LIFE is well know for being one of the best modern Japanese restaurants in London. They serve set course menus and a la carte, which vary from Teriyaki dishes to Sushi, Sashimi. Tempura and Kaiseki. If you’re interested in eating there before the party downstairs I’d recommend first having a look at the menu, which you can find by digging around on here.
