Rupert Clervaux celebrates the release of ‘Zibaldone III of CVX’, with a programme of music, spoken word and film. Made by his CVX alter-ego, the Zibaldone series combines music of many genres and literature of all kinds into a loose suspension that drifts over the lines dividing original composition and mixtape compilation. After thematic excursions into salutary poetics and psycho-social disquiet on Zibaldone I and II, this third instalment (to be released on Berceuse Heroique) takes a distinctly political turn––finding musical settings for fragments of text and speech from diverse thinkers who’ve made it their life’s work to challenge the status quo.
As well as presenting a set of Zibaldone material, he’ll be playing alongside two of London’s busiest and most exciting musicians––the equally brilliant Valentina Magaletti and Ben Vince––in an improvisational saxophone, drums and percussion trio.
In putting together the night’s line-up, Rupert is proud to have worked with Isis O’Regan from 'political party' Room for Rebellion which campaigns and fundraises for abortion rights in Ireland. She will be presenting two pieces over the course of the night:
A dance film by Rachel Ní Bhraonáin and Sophie Hutchinson.
and Work in Progress
by Isis O'Regan & Olan Monk
DJing on the night will be James Marrs, whose Laura Lies In label released Zibaldone I and II, and coline, whose artwork is an integral part of the ongoing series.
