  • Fatima Al Qadiri will play at the next edition of the London Contemporary Music Festival, which runs from May 26th through June 1st. In keeping with previous LCMF events, this latest edition will burrow deep into the realm of experimental electronic and classical music. It'll take place at Second Home, a new events space in Shoreditch, East London. The programming on May 27th is titled is "Marxist Chillwave," and aims to explore the relationship between music and global capitalism. They've called on Al Qadiri, who recently released her debut album on Hyperdub, to perform, though there will also be performances of the work of Richard Wagner. A couple of days later, on May 29th, Russell Haswell will team up with Japanese noise artist Pain Jerk for a performance. (The pair have just released an album together on Editions Mego.) The title of that night is "The Japanese Extreme," and will also include a performance of Noh music, which dates back to the 14th century and is played with four instruments: stick drum, hip drum, shoulder drum and flute.
