An absorbing and tactile installation-performance work from Manchester ritualistic improvisers/sound artists Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols, aka part wild horses mane on both sides, searching for new ways of experiencing sound while camouflaging the processes.

Tailoring each show to the location, the piece involves bespoke speaker placement, live instrumentation, acousmatic interventions and the subtle deployment of multi-sensory elements, drawing the audience into a bewitching sonic maze. Building upon a core of three looping, simultaneously played tape compositions and a conscious bridling of audio/visual perception, the show’s territory will be mapped in response to each venue’s architecture and acoustics, encouraging participants to explore the space and move through the stageless production generating their own sui generis experience.

Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols are part wild horses mane on both sides, a consistently idiosyncratic and adventurous free music group. Hailing from the north of England via France they have the ability to induce hermetic sonic states through a process of ritualistic improvisation. Employing flute, percussion and electronics alongside a vast cache of sonic artefacts that they have collected over the years (field recordings, found objects, old media), they conjure up a bold and evocative ancient/modern sound spectrum. Their compositions/performances traverse epic contours, veering from moments of spare, poetic beauty to unhinged rural psychedelia, unified by an acute awareness of time, space and silence.
