Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule will be performing new ritual music with violin, voice, pitch-shifter and loop pedals to create layers of harmonic overtones and undertones as a rich textural tapestry on which to overlay esoteric lyrics and word-play related to the surrounding artworks for his DISTILLATIO exhibition. Some pieces will be accompanied by the percussion and singing bowls of Akoustik Timbre Frekuency.
This is Orryelle’s only London performance this year,with support from trance-inducing synth-sitar duo Raagnagrok (Mark O Pilkington and Zali Lens-Flare Krishna) playing their unique blend of cosmic drone Raaga.
Orryelle is the director of Australia’s Metamorphic Ritual Theatre Co. and has also performed musically (usually with a theatrical, dance and/or ritual element) both solo and with many different collaborators (inc. Jo Quail, Soriah, This Too Shall Pass, Kestral, Amordios Gobblyn-Smyth, Mutation Parlour, The HarleQuintet) in UK, US, Australia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Portugal, Belgium, France, Poland.
Orryelle’s performance will also feature the theatrical use of his new Alchymic Chess set (bronze, clay and fluid-containing glass) which debuts at the exhibition.
