Those fine people over at Lost Toy Records are putting on a festival! It's called Be Glad for the Song Has No End and you can find out more below! Be Glad for the Song Has No End Music is a day of live music, film screenings and events set in the grounds of Wysing Arts Centre, an 11-acre site in the Cambridgeshire countryside, taking place on Saturday September 11th. The event is organised and arranged by Andy Holden and will see live musical performances take place on two uniquely constructed outdoor stages whilst a programme of film and performances that use the moving image to explore music from a documentary or anthropological position takes place in the Cinema space. The artists' involved use a wide variety of improbable instruments and unlikely approaches, using ideas influenced as much by visual art as music. Martin Creed's music is an intense mix of minimalism, post-punk and conceptual art, whilst the Owl Project combine wood-turning with electronic improvisation. The structure of the festival rather than a gallery exhibition allows a multitude of different approaches to co-exist and be experienced live, in an atmosphere of unfolding experimentation. The festival line-up includes: Martin Creed and His Band, Bob and Roberta Smith's Apathy Band, Long Meg, Juneau Projects, Kaffe Matthews, Sue Tompkins, Owl Project, Die Kunst, Grubby Mitts, Joanne Robertson, Sam Belinfante, The Errorists, Saydance, Babygrand, Bohman Brothers with Richard Thomas, Johnny Parry Chamber Orchestra, Ricky Leach, Rude Pravo, Aleksander Kolkowski, Closed Circuits, Rob Bidder and Pyramid Pyramid. DJ sets include: Mark Leckey, Junior Aspirin Records, Mark Dean and The Wire Sound System. The film programme includes works by Nico Vascellari, Luke Fowler, Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Matt Stokes, Ed Atkins, Benedict Drew, Archie Bronson Outfit and a live soundtrack performed by David Blandy. Other events scattered around the festival site include Kim Gordon and Jutta Koether's Reverse Karaoke, where visitors can record themselves playing along to the Sonic Youth vocalist, Mark Essen's Record Exchange, Charlesworth Lewandowski and Mann, a stall of artists’ records, a festival programme and artists' songbook in collaboration with An Endless Supply, and an UBUWeb sound-system in the cafe area. The festival is supported by Resonance 104.4FM, Lost Toys Records and The Wire magazine, and is made possible by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council East.
