Uncomfortable Positions (feat. Lun*na Menoh)

WATCH THE BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR ‘UNCOMFORTABLE POSITIONS’

MOTH CLUB, LONDON, 3 AUGUST

OPTIMO’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY, GLASGOW, 6 AUGUST

 

“…their best record yet “ – THE QUIETUS One of their albums of the year so far
“…highlight Breathe On finds Kuperus singing a sibilant foil to Swans bandleader Michael Gira’s breathy drawl atop a bed of spare creaky electronics” – THE WIRE
 “…intriguing collisions…” – UNCUT
“…richer and stranger than anything they’ve done before… unusually electrifying” – PITCHFORK

 

ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have released a new video for Uncomfortable Positions, featuring Japanese born, LA based multidisciplinary artist Lun*na Menoh. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/TAidOf5wYJM

 

Lun*na Menoh, whose work deals with “fashion, clothing and exposing the invisible thread between performance and fabric”, and Nicola Kuperus recorded the video in one take – both blindfolded, manipulating a sewing machine hooked up to effects pedals. Further information about a piece of the artist’s work owned by the V&A can be read here.

 

The band are in the UK this week for a show at the MOTH Club, London on 3 August, with support from Richard Fearless, and for Optimo’s 20th anniversary celebrations in Glasgow on 6 August (full details below)

 

Uncomfortable Positions is taken from the band’s latest album, Detroit House Guests, a project conceived by ADULT. based on the visual artist residency model. Each musician came to ADULT.’s studio for a three week period with the parameter that they all live, work and collaborate together. The result – a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album.

 

The album features collaborations with a whole host of musicians and artists – Douglas J McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb, Michael Gira from Swans, Shannon Funchess from Light Asylum, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Austrian thereminist Dorit Chrysler and Lun*na Menoh.

 

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio and have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d’art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at spaces such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City), and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
