In between making claustrophobic electronic cuts of engrossing noise, Chairman Kato is consistently busy creating in other forms; from his Focus Group where he gets curators to sit in a darkened room and experience two hours of music, to mind-blowing omelettes. All the under the influence of a chronic Gaviscon addiction no doubt.

Now the London-based producer has announced details of a new piece of work, a multi-sensory installation titled Membranous Labyrinth that will be hosted under a railway arch in Hackney. Having visited the place and discussed the set-up with Kato and collaborator (and designer) Aya Arden, we can assure you that it'll be a thought-provoking, sensory screwing experience that you really should get down to see.

The installation will feature an assortment of mediums such as sound, sculpture and film (including the use of Super 8 film) that explores memory and mortality - the project originally stemming from Aya's chance encounter with a former doctor in Switzerland last summer. As is Kato's way, it promises to be a somewhat amorphous, dark affair, whilst being wholly earnest and steeped in a creative, engaging vibe.

A private view takes place on March 22nd from 7pm (confirm your attendance via the Facebook event), with the show running until April 14th from Friday-Sunday during the daytime. Check their tumblr to get a more intimate sense of the process and for further details.
