Capsule are delighted to host Japanese artist Atsuhiro Ito who performs using his device the Optron, essentially fluorescent light tubes with integrated guitar pick-ups sent through guitar amp stacks.
When the voltage applied to the tubes is altered, the lights flicker and the pick-ups harvest the electromagnetic noise perfectly synchronized with the flickering light, the intense noise creating a visual hallucination and the sounds veering from some kind of extreme techno to outright noise.
Support comes from sound artist and founder of Napalm Death/Scorn Nicholas Bullen and Birmingham based trio Windscale.
