Pataphysical (w/Gregor Riddell & Torun Stavseng)//Emiddio Vasquez
Pataphysical mark the release of their forthcoming ‘Periphera’ LP on 12Isle with a live, multi-channel sound performance. Pataphysical will be presenting compositions from the album as well as new and improvised pieces, joined by guest cellists Gregor Riddell and Torun Stavseng with support from Cypriot-Dominican sound artist Emiddio Vasquez.
Pataphysical’s live experimental-ambient explorations combine field recordings, synthesis, surround sound psychoacoustics, disturbances in media and visitations from across the spectrum. Since 2012 they have been designing and performing immersive listening events in forests, churches, industrial spaces, museums, concert venues and clubs. Periphera, their first full-length release, features studio material recorded between 2015-18.
Emiddio Vasquez’ live performances make use of improvisation, modular synthesis, multichannel diffusion, FM radio, tape loops and material composition. He has worked in studios such as EMS (Stockholm), ZKM (Karlsruhe) and IRCAM (Paris) and in 2018 founded Moneda, a label/publishing house initiative.
