L.E.V. 2013

Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual



Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker and Emptyset + Joanie Lemercier added to L.E.V. 2013


Following the previous confirmations of Clark, Andy Stott, Raime, Pole and Kid606, now L.E.V. 2013 is joined by other three essential projects in contemporary electronic music and specially concerned about the physical propierties of sound and music composition with analog sources: Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker and Emptyset + Joanie Lemercier.

L.E.V. 2013, which will be taking place over the next 3 and 4 May in different areas of Laboral City of Culture in Gijon, is absolutely committed to shape a program focused on experimentation and the new sound scenarios of contemporary music. A physical and ephemeral space, that for two days bring closer to Gijon (Spain) some of the most outstanding projects today, along with fundamental pioneering to understand the evolution of sound and image in all its forms and mutations.

Oneohtrix Point Never is one of the most outstanding electronic music composers in recent years. The man behind works as essential as “Rifts”, “Replica” or “Returnal”. The sound of Daniel Lopatin it’s somewhere between ambient music and drone, with strong influences from krautrock and new age, the lo-fi aesthetics and an obsesive attitude for synthesizer music. We are really proud to announce he will be performing his brand new AV live at L.E.V. 2013.

Tim Hecker is another essential artist in today’s electronic music. He has released five albums and nine EPs on labels as Kranky, Ipecac, Mille Plateaux or Fat Cat, developing a sound on the intersection between noise, dissonance and melody. He makes dense collages, usually accompanied by digital noise generated by computer.

Emptyset is a bristol based project formed in 2005. They explore the legacy of analogue media, integrating aspects of rhythm, signal processing and spatial recording within the framework of minimalist composition. their work interrogates the perceptual boundaries between noise and music and the potential for both technology and architecture to embed and codify themselves within sound. At L.E.V. 2013 they will be performing live together with Joanie Lemercier, another impressive artist from the Bristol scene who is a renowned member of the visual collective AntiVJ, one of the most stunning and interesting visual collectives today.

Tickets for L.E.V. 2013 will be on sale very soon and we will be offering a special 2-days ticket at the cost of 30€ and only on sale for a reduced time. Stay tuned!
