Extra Info

Napalm Death, the legendary grindcore band, will play through a public address system specially made by ceramicist Keith Harrison using clay to test the power of the sound they can produce. Harrison, resident ceramicist at the V&A, has built a wooden sound system with 10 speakers he has filled with liquid clay and allowed it to solidify. As the fourman band starts to play, the rawenergy of the sound produced will reverberate inside the clay, causing it to slowly crack, disintegrate and explode, changing the music as it does. The speakers are clad with blue and yellow ceramic tiles based on the group of vivid blue and yellow tiled tower blocks on the Bustleholme Mill Estate, West Bromwich where Harrison was born. Harrison said: モNapalm was my band of choice, they really understood the project. We needed a group with a lot of attitude to show the power of sound and the energy it has to destroy. It's interesting to see how electrical power can change material, like clay. It can warm it up, break it down or completely change its state, which means the gig will be both visually and aurally entertaining. Mark Greenway, vocalist for Napalm Death, said: モSound as a weapon or a weapon of change is a very interesting concept and I think that the whole process of our sound gradually degrading clay sculptures is captivating. Tickets are free, but limited to four per person for this oneoff live performance. Booking fees apply.
