Editions Mego holding one dayer at Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion

Editions Mego is holding a one day event at Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion on 11 May, catchily titled 20130511. Label head Peter Rehberg is giving the event a catalogue number, eMego170 and will be releasing a CD compilation for ticket holders. The event includes performances across two rooms, with one room dedicated to live sets and the other to performances of material from the INA-GRM catalogue, which Editions Mego has been reissuing under its Recollection GRM sub label.

Performing live are Bruce Gilbert, Mark Van Hoen under his Locust moniker, Kevin Drumm, Fennesz, and new Mego signing Bill Roisz. SND's Mat Steel and Pan label head Bill Kouligas will also be playing DJ sets. The GRM room will host performances of work by Bernard Parmegiani and Luc Ferrari, a new work by Florian Hecker, plus sets from composers Robert Hampson (of Loop) and Kassel Jaeger. There will also be an installation by Mark Fell, titled Factoid#3.

Every ticket holder will receive a CD compilation, which will not be going on general release. The CD, eMego170, will include exclusive or unreleased tracks by all the artists involved, and Rehberg will be releasing a tracklisting next month.
