Thursday 20th January | 7pm | £5 suggested donation

This show will be the culmination of a week long residency here where the pair will work together to develop their improvisations for stage. They will be playing records after the live show and be hanging out to chat about what they have been up to.

NOUM /nu:m/ is a rock band that grew stranger as time went by. It is lead by folk and electronic artist Noémie Ducimetière, whose ancient music explorations bloom in this project. Through her vocals, tiny guitar and mountain of hardware, the project transmutes its roots of folk, grunge and rave music to shake the divide between the experimental and the traditional. Electronic artist and instrument maker Vahakn Matossian (Sonnen), who has been a part of Noum since formation, will join Noémie in this residency to cultivate an attitude of exploration in performance and work on bringing improvisation to the stage. Expect euphoria and come with an interest in time travel.

Nomémie Ducimetière

Noémie has spent the last 5 years studying Troubadour and pre-Gregorian chant with mentor Phd Thomas Fournil (Idrîsî Ensemble). She produces music for documentary features and shorts, having scored for productions the likes of BFI, Real Stories, Greenpeace and NOWNESS. She was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1988 and emigrated to London in 1997 with her family. Opting out of institution, she quit college early and went on to form the 9-piece band Gentle Mystics with whom she toured as lead singer for 7 years.

Vahakn Matossian

Schooled by his composer father Rolf Gehlhaar, Vahakn has been producing and performing electro-accoustic music, ranging from dance music to experimetnal since early age. Aside from performance he is an instrument builder and product designer for Human Instruments, an organisation which designs accessible music tech with people with physical disabilities including visual impairment. He collaborates on projects internationally with the likes of MIT, Rhizomatiks, BFI and the British Council.
