LISTEN TO THE LATEST RELEASE IN HIS 111 SERIES
‘FIVE’ WITH COBY SEY
Louis Carnell has collaborated with London-based artist and producer Coby Sey, for the latest in Carnell’s ongoing series, 111. Their new work together, ‘five’ is out today on Mute:
111 is curatorial statement from one of the UK’s most elusive artists, drawing on visual, recorded and live performance. The series, which launched with Keeley Forsyth and has so far seen releases with Lee Ranaldo. Ben Vince, and Yasa Asmar will comprise of 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 and Stoke Newington Old Church in London and the Volksbühne in Berlin.
Follow Louis Carnell for the final release for 2023, ‘six’ with KMRU, before the series restarts in January 2024.
