Modul:Projects and Brighter Sound present Modul:Meets, a series of free sessions for anyone interested in electronic music performance, composition and production.
Each Modul:Meets session features a different artist working at the forefront of electronic music, who will give an insight into their live performance and recording methods, as well as tips and advice for your own work.
CHAINES, born Caroline Haines is a musician based in Manchester, who writes rather peculiar electronica and electro-acoustic music. More recently, they have had their music toured by producer and cellist Oliver Coates (PRAH Recordings) across Europe and America, and large scale electro-acoustic premières given by the London Contemporary Orchestra (Decca, Universal, various) and organist James McVinnie (Bedroom Community) in venues such as The Roundhouse and The Royal Albert Hall. They have been in residency with SAY award winner Anna Meredith and Grammy Award-winner Imogen Heap, improvising, performing and producing audio and video.
CHAINES has had their music broadcast on BBC Radio a number of times, including a live performance at Manchester’s Islington Mill on BBC Radio 3’s Exposure, and on Laura Barton’s ‘Notes From a Musical Island’ (BBC Radio 4), featured in The Guardian. CHAINES’ third record and first full-length album ‘The King’ is due to be released later this year. They graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in 2013 with a 1st class honours in Composition and Contemporary Music.
Caroline will be showing how they have taken their home compositional techniques into the live setting in a unique one off performance and workshop.
Modul:Projects is a collective of electronic musicians and artists. They explore methods for collaboration within electronic and experimental music through unique artistic residencies and events, focusing on pioneering innovative methods of electronic composition and non-traditional live performance.
Modul:Meets sessions are open to all ages and are free but must be booked online in advance.
