monomania, curated by bad timing, presents a selection of the best underground, electronic and experimental art and music happening today featuring twelve hours of live art, sound art, music, film and installation. monomania aimsto challenge the way we make and experience art and sound, including international artists and performers using everyday objects, obsolete technology and inventive, self-sufficient and DIY approaches. These solo artists explore compulsions, rituals, isolation and personal obsession. Alongside the programme of live art, music and performance there will be workshops, screenings and stalls.
Aid & Abet will be transformed for the day with a series of newly commissioned site-specific works, alongside some incredible performances which include Nick Steur's FREEZE! a performance of focused concentration, silence and emptiness. Musician and visual artist Sean Dower will create a new performance-activated installation thatexplores the disconnect between watching and listening and a site-responsive performative sound work by Lee Patterson draws on the materiality and history of the building and the surrounding area. Over at Cambridge Junction there will also be a packed programme of performances and workshops which include; Richard Dawson, avant-folk singer-songwriter presenting his idiosyncratic songs and Heatsick ending the festival with Extended Play, a three hour multi-sensory club environment with durational performance, snacks, drinks and fragrances.
