‘Our upcoming residency at Snape Maltings will be a chance for the team to trial the technology and logistics involved in the realisation of this work, including spacialised audio, projection mapping, speaker placement and so on.'

'It will also allow the band some creative freedom to hone the live performance element of the installation’s premiere, as this will be a challenging addition to what is already an ambitious departure from the usual gig setting! A lot of what we are hoping to achieve relies on the audience experience within the space, and ensuring that the audio and visual parts of the installation are interlocking will play a big role in this.’ - un:procedure

Premiering at Manchester Jazz Festival in May 2023, Themory is an immersive audiovisual installation, drawing from the subjective and fluid forces of family and history, place and time. Incorporating spacialised sound and video collage, Themory tells a collective story through cutting and layering to create new compositions, heard and seen. Audiences will be propelled through a thematic narrative, bound together by a backdrop of past and present Manchester, inviting discussion as to how and why memories and history become a part of our everyday lives. This work is supported through the Cheltenham Festival Jerwood Jazz Encounters programme, co-commissioned by Manchester Jazz Festival and supported by Jerwood Arts and Sound UK.

About un:procedure

un.procedure are an experimental-jazz-electronic outfit, made up of synth player Piera Onacko, drummer and electronic artist Nathan Jones and alto saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi. The trio deliver a collision of free improvisation in a bed of spiralling, 70’s rock influenced grooves and heady, sci–fi tinged soundscapes. Following a year of well–received performances the band look to the future with their sights set on a debut album. Multi-faceted artist Guri Bosh provides a live, reactive visual spectacle to accompany their pummelling set.
