PechaKucha Edinburgh #06


December 17th 2009, 7:30pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.

It is curated in Edinburgh by Gordon Duffy, Principal of architecture practice Studio DuB. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.

In response to the work in our exhibition 'Are We Human?', the fourth Dialogues concert features performers from Edinburgh's free improvisation scene joined by Bennett Hogg on 'resistant violin' and John Ferguson on guitar.

We are also delighted to be showing Sean Williams' new sound piece (the sound of music), a work that explores the listening-history encoded into the grooves of long playing records.

Dialogues | Lukas Ligeti


Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB
Tuesday 17th November 2009, 8pm.

Transcending genres, composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti has developed a musical style drawing on Downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, and world music, particularly from Africa.

He will perform a selection of his compositions for electronics which reveal an inspiring new take on the dialogue between African and Western music achieved through ingenious use of sampling and music technology.

Lukas will also lead a three day workshop at Inspace with a second concert by students on the MScs in Digital Composition and Performance and Sound Design course. They will perform on the 20th November at 9pm.

Much of what defines humanity is the product of cultural transmission. Language, music, and art arise from an endless cycle of observation, learning, and copying by generations of humans. We are all engaged in a huge game of Chinese Whispers, and our unique behaviour is the result.
