LOUIS CARNELL with OKKYUNG LEE
LISTEN TO THE LATEST RELEASE IN HIS 111 SERIES
Louis Carnell has announced details of the latest release in his 111 series, which has seen Carnell release a new collaboration – so far with Keeley Forsyth, Lee Ranaldo, Ben Vince, Yasa Asmar, Coby Sey and KMRU – on every third Tuesday. Conceived as an endeavour to trace the shape of hope in an epoch of disintegration, each piece is accompanied by one of three visual collaborations with Arcin Sagdic.
The first release for 2024 is a piece with South Korean cellist, composer and improviser Okkyung Lee – the pair previously worked together on the prestigious Distant Paris series with NY-based ISSUE Project Room.

111 is curatorial statement from one of the UK’s most elusive artists, drawing on visual, recorded and live performance. The series carries on through to June ’24, with 15 collaborative works in total, each unfolding as a cycle of single releases, each created with a diverse selection of artists from across the globe.
The launch for each track will create an environment for the listener to explore 111 – 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 forthcoming releases in the series, which continue later this month with Wu-Lu.
