22-25 July 2021 Jodrell Bank Observatory

Electronic Empires

Electronic Empires is a new audio-visual commission for New North and South that takes us on an international musical adventure. Influenced by world music, indo-jazz, rock, indie and modern electronic music this new new work fuses musical disciplines and cultures 71 years after Indian and British partition.

Alongside the live musical performance, Electronic Empires’ A/V work will explore global topics including Indian cinema, sound design in a new DIY ‘cut up dub punk club’.

Using hand drawn graphic art and rich content from location shoots around India and Manchester, the A/V artists and music makers are curious, and will tell the story of the Shapes, Sounds and Signs of Things to Come in this stunning and thought-provoking immersive performance.
