RUSSELL HASWELL & SUE TOMPKINS
 

Russell & Sue will perform a set of new and existing compositions, as well as some specially chosen covers!

They recently collaborated on a track & video, for Russell’s mini-LP, “Respondent”, for Diagonal Records. They first performed live together at Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin at Sarah Lucas’ “FunQroc” happening weekend in 2017. 

Russell Haswell is a restlessly forward-thinking, multi-disciplinary artist, performer and curator. With a background steeped in computer music, black metal, noise, techno and solo improvisation, his practice is renowned for broaching the extremities of visual and sonic arts.
 
Sue Tompkins is a collector of found phrases, words, and lyrics. Through her typed and spoken works – created by editing, layering, arranging and configuring spontaneous thoughts, random phrases and quotes from popular media – she re-presents snatches of material gleaned from the everyday, distorting meaning by metering their arrangement and delivery. Her work exists both live and in the gallery; where she transfers aspects of her live performance (such as the rhythm, tempo and composition) into two-dimensional works.
