To coincide with The Curves of the Needle, London-based sound artist and musician Graham Dunning will be performing his Mechanical Techno project. Lee Scratch Perry described Dub as “the ghost in me coming out,” Dunning performs a live dub on a clunky home-made contraption to release the ghost in the machine. Mechanical Techno – Ghost in the Machine Music is vinyl dissonance for lost memories: a rhythmical collage of record crackle, analogue synthesizer, wounded dubplates and clumsily triggered drum machines.
Graham Dunning is self-taught as an artist and musician. He has performed solo and in ensembles across the UK, Switzerland and Norway, and exhibited in the UK, New Zealand and USA. He teaches Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre in London and also gives independent workshops. Dunning has releases on Entr’acte, Linear Obsessional, Raw Tonk and other DIY labels.
