Held in the bar space at Firstsite. Lewis Gardens, High Street, Colchester CO1 1JH

One in a series of special nights in partnership between Colchester Arts Centre & Firstsite, bringing together contemporary electronic music, short performance and spoken word into a relaxed informal late night bar lounge setting.

Join us for late cocktails and strange happenings. DJ’s create a sonic backdrop to a bizarre, surreal and at times truly mystifying collection of performances! Relax and enjoy the whole gallery, our bar, our building and our bonhomie for the evening.

Appearing tonight:

Experimental Sonic Machines
Experimental Sonic Machines is a solo acoustic & electronic music project by Peter K Rollings, based in Lincoln UK. It started in 2010, developing home-made music instruments & machines, plus costumes inspired by science fiction, history & ancient art. Scrap materials are used rather than buying new, plus power cells that are run-down & usually disposed of, & some solar power. There’s a robot drummer called Ernie who celebrated his 10th birthday in December 2023. Experimental Sonic Machines have played at countless open mics, gigs, festivals & busking. All the music is original, plus improvisation, expressing an admiration for nature, the universe, & incorporating motifs from his art. No show is the same, & there are plans for new songs, costumes, & instruments. Experimental Sonic Machines has a Facebook page, plus CDs, badges & models.
