Live performance by Joe Namy

Saturday 22 July 2023 | 8:00 pm | Archaeological Site

This live set will consist of drums and electronics playing rhythms for growth and regeneration, grafting traditional and contemporary harvest songs with sound system cultures.

The performance will be broadcast live on Radio Alhara. 

Joe Namy is an artist, composer, and educator often working collaboratively through the intersections of sound, video, performance, and sculpture. Their projects often focus on the politics of music and organized sound, such as the pageantry and power of opera, the noise laws and gender dynamics of bass, the colors and tones of militarization, the migration patterns of instruments and songs, and the complexities of translation in all this - from language to language, from score to sound, from drum to dance. Joe holds a monthly DJ residency, Rhythm x Rhythm on Radio Alhara, is a Sundance/Time Studios Kendeda fellow, and a PhD researcher at the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford.
