ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2014:
Time, Memory and Inner Space
Friday 23 May, 9 pm (doors 8pm)
Singer-songwriter Carmen Villain constructs a tempestuous, psychedelic and dreamlike music with loops, guitar, vocals and programmed percussion. She draws on a sprawling array of avant rock influences from This Heat, Durutti Column and Sun City Girls, to Todd Rundgren and Crosby Stills & Nash. In a performative reading featuring music and text at Oslo’s most Ballardian hotel, she evokes the surrealistic environments of London’s motorways and ring roads, inner city isolation and internal landscapes.
