At the beginning of next month The Wire will be hosting a pair of discussion panels at Spain's two day LEV festival, in Gijon on the North Coast.
Two panels moderated by The Wire's Jeniffer Lucy Allan will take place, one on AV performance and another on post-Industrial Techno and Ambient strains of club music. The first panel, titled Enhanced Performances: Dance Music, Audio-visual Art And VJ Culture, will include MFO, Joanie Lemercier and Vincent Oliver (who's put together Clark's AV show for the festival) discussing the development of performance and narrative for live electronic music.
The second panel, It's Getting Dark In Here: Dissonance And Dystopia On The Dancefloor, will include Raime, Emptyset and Roly Porter, talking about current strains of Industrial and noise musics infiltrating club music.
LEV festival takes place 3–4 May in Gijon, Spain. Also on the line up are Pole, Kid606, Tim Hecker, Oneohtrix Point Never, Andy Stott, Jon Hopkins, Evian Christ, Santiago Latorre and others. Full line up and festival details here.
