Experimental literature and new media project Electronic Voice Phenomenon rolls into Manchester this month, as part of an eight-date tour across the country. Inspired by Konstantin Raudive’s 1970s experiments of the same name, the programme explores modern approaches to writing and performing to provide a platform for innovative new poets, musicians and performers. On the bill will be Outfit, who add field recordings, guitar feedback and processed samples to their music to explore hidden messages, and SJ Fowler, who combines song, video and poetry to attempt to resurrect a happy ghost. Also featuring will be spoken word and video from former lecturer in electronic literature, Ross Sutherland, and an exploration of Stan Gooch’s The Total Man story from Hannah Silva. An effortless overlap of performance and writing.
Wed 22 May, Engine House, Chorlton Mill , 3 Cambridge Street , M1 5BY, 6.30pm, £5, www.electronicvoicephenomena.net
