LOUIS CARNELL – 111
CURATED SERIES CONTINUES WITH ‘THREE’, A NEW COLLABORATION WITH SAXOPHONIST BEN VINCE
LISTEN TO THE TRACK HERE
LONDON PERFORMANCE – 16 NOVEMBER, AT STOKE NEWINGTON OLD CHURCH
Louis Carnell continues his ongoing series of curated collaboration with ‘three’, a new piece created with experimental saxophonist and composer, Ben Vince. This new collaboration follows his previous releases: ‘one’ with Keeley Forsyth, which launched the project last month, and ‘two’ with Lee Ranaldo.
Carnell has also announced a London performance on 16 November at Stoke Newington Old Church, with support from >Σ. Tickets are available HERE.
Featuring the third in a series of visual works by Louis Carnell & Arcin Sagdic, listen to the Ben Vince collaboration here:
111 is curatorial statement from one of the UK’s most elusive artists, drawing on visual, recorded and live performance. The series will see 15 collaborations in total, each unfolding as a cycle of single releases, each created with a diverse selection of artists from across the globe. Louis Carnell conceived of 111 as an endeavour to trace the shape of hope, in an epoch of disintegration.
A new track will emerge on every third Tuesday, with the launch for each creating an environment for the listener to explore the series – without hierarchy – with the aim to question how and with whom we collaborate, and where we can find commonality and community.
The musician, artist, and curator’s work has deep in its heart a concern with both the physical and digital environments where he finds himself. Carnell’s use of sound to interrogate social structures and hierarchy, saw him at the forefront of tackling themes of anxiety, and the connotations of masculinity and race through the entanglement of introspection.
His meticulous attention to the visual world has resulted in collaborations with Arcin
Sagdic, Daniel Sannwald, Frederik Heyman and Peter De Potter and his recent curated events have included performances at Café OTO, London and the Volksbühne, Berlin. A new date has just been announced for Stoke Newington Old Church on 16 November, tickets go on sale on Thursday 28 September.
Follow Louis Carnell for the next two releases in the series, collaborations with Yasa Asmar, and Coby Sey, with further releases continuing into 2024.
