Remko Scha retrospective happening in Nottingham

The late algorithmic composer who died back in 2015 will be subject to an exhibition and book documenting his career

Nottingham’s TG gallery are mounting an exhibition of work by the late guitarist Remko Scha. The musician and algorithmic artist, who died in November 2015, explored methods of making music without direct human intervention, as exemplified by his 1982 album Machine Guitars. The exhibition will run from 31 March–4 June. A book will also be published to coincide with the exhibition, and there will be a performance at Nottingham Contemporary of Remko Scha’s The Machines on 3 June.
