PAN marks five years with Southbank Centre showcase and Boiler Room session at V&A museum

PAN plans birthday bash in London.

Bill Kouligas’ avant-garde electronics label turns five years old in 2014, and to mark the occasion he’s announced a pair of special events in the UK capital.

On January 31, the V&A museum invites Boiler Room into its hallowed halls for an epic free event featuring a one-off collaboration between Kouligas (pictured) and Mat Dryhurst. Inspired by “a conviction that live streaming will become its own expressive medium”, the performance will pair Kouligas’ abstract electronic compositions with Dryhurst’s improvised live manipulation of the Boiler Room feed.

Elsewhere in the museum, New York percussionist and installation artist Eli Keszler and London’s Helm will present an exclusive work based around Keszler’s piano string installation, while Heatsick will perform a short story by Edgar Allan Poe.

Artist James Hoff will install sound installations around the museum made of popular ringtones infected with the ILOVEYOU computer worm, while Emptyset will present a film about Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire which explores how the physical characteristics of space can be codified within sound. Sounds pretty incredible, and oh-so-PAN. More events around the museum are planned – head to the V&A site to find out more.

Then on February 7, Harmonic Series presents a one-off showcase night at the Southbank Centre exploring PAN’s recent audiovisual direction.

Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey and sound artist Florian Hecker will present a new piece, while Lee Gamble will debut an audiovisual show created with artist Dave Gaskarth. L.A. experimenter Rene Hell will play some typically “abstract compositions”, plus there’ll be spoken work from Mat Dryhurst and collages by sample fiend Jar Moff.

Head to the Southbank Centre for more information and tickets.
