FEEDBACK Visual Howl & Reflexive Music
In 2004 an international array of musicians toured the UK under the
umbrella title of Feedback – Order from Noise. Included in the tour
was Toshimaru Nakamura with his No Input Mixing Desk who performed with
Billy Roisz who played live with video feedback. Coinciding with their
visit to Hull (Monday 16th April at Timebase, High Street) this
programme brings together a number of works that exploit both the
conceptual and expressive qualities of feedback, plus a new live
performance work by Pete McPartlan.
