BAR OPEN AN HOUR BEFORE PERFORMANCE AS THE MAIN AUDITORIUM BAR WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE PERFORMANCES SO ARRIVE EARLY TO GET YOUR DRINKS.

Sited within the atmospheric auditorium of St Mary in The Castle, Ray Lee’s award-winning Siren is a whirling, spinning spectacle of mechanical movement, electronic sound and light featuring a forest of large metal tripods, whose rotating arms emit an extraordinary
chorus of pulsing electronic drones.

Silent performers move within the mass of swirling metal, operating their machines and tuning electronic oscillators to change the musical composition while dodging and ducking the spinning arms.

The closeness of the tripods’ tuning sets off a series of amazing overtones that evoke the sense of an ethereal choir. As the audience move freely around the installation the sound
pulses past them creating a hypnotic sound world and a compelling visual image.

Ray Lee is a composer, artist, and performer. He was awarded British Composer of the Year for Sonic Art in 2012. Lee’s work investigates his fascination with the hidden world of electromagnetic radiation and in particular how sound can be used as evidence of invisible phenomena. He is interested in the way that science and philosophy represent the universe. He creates spinning, whirling, and pendulous sound installations that explore “circles of
ether,” the invisible forces that surround us.

Warrior Square, St Leonards on Sea, TN37 6, United Kingdom Map

WARRIOR SQUARE CONVENIENCES
Join us each weekend for a performance atop the public toilets at Warrior Square - seafront side of the main road. Some are durational and some are repeated but all will make you see this unused space in a new light.

LOUISE ASHCROFT - Monsters of the Deep: Sea Monster Band

In early maps of the world, drawings of sea monsters signified unknown marine territory, and since the beginning of cinema, such creatures have been rife in Hollywood. Today these beasts are experiencing a cultural renaissance, as images of washed-up monsters frequently go viral online.

Are they click-bait hoaxes striving for online attention, and if so, why has there always been this cultural need for ‘monsters of the deep’ as signifiers of otherness? Instead of answering this complex question, performance artist Louise Ashcroft has founded the rock band Monsters of the Deep and is organising a monster-movie music concert on the roof of a public toilet overlooking the waves, in the hope of summoning the creatures themselves. Exploring how we conjure monstrosity through sound, the performances will feature interpretations of soundtracks from monster action scenes in films like It Came From Beneath the Sea and Attack of the Crab Monsters.

If you’re a local musician or band who would like to take part please email monstersofthedeephastings@gmail.com

Louise Ashcroft has exhibited at The Government Art Collection, Latitude Festival, Arebyte, AVU Prague, TEDx Hackney, Turner Contemporary, Modern Art Oxford and comedy festival The Boring Conference. She studied at Oxford University, Birkbeck and The Royal College of Art and was recently in residence at Tate Modern and Camden Arts Centre. Louise makes live performances, videos and installations reflecting upon cultural behaviours and traditions.
