Naviar Records’ first event outside of London was possible only thanks to the invaluable help of Neil Stringfellow who co-curated this wonderful event of music and haiku, and the financial support of the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

haiku workshop

In the afternoon we hosted a free haiku workshop at the Norwich Millennium Library, run by local poet and tutor Sue Burge.

live performances

In the evening four artists, members of Naviar’s community working in the field of electronic, ambient and electroacoustic, performed live at The Birdcage, the iconic music venue at the heart of Norwich.

Audio Obscura (UK) https://soundcloud.com/audio-obscura-music

Audio Obscura performs Lap-top based electronics for the ears, haunting the wide spectrum’s of electro-acoustic music with a firm footing in the ambient realm. The sound also strays towards the experimental; musique concrète, idm with post-classical minimal leanings occasionally push through.

Ikjoyce (UK) https://soundcloud.com/ikjoyce

ikjoyce makes electronic ambient and drone music using modular synthesis to explore themes of nature, space, isolation, man/machine interaction, and the borders of the sleep/wake cycle.

Sevenism (UK) https://soundcloud.com/sevenism

“I’m a self taught musician and sound mangler blurring the boundaries between analog and digital, acoustic and electronic, generative and human. I work in the present moment letting the music flow wherever it wants. My aim is to make music that is strange and experimental yet resonates on a deeper level.”

Subespai (AUS) https://soundcloud.com/subespai

Subespai is the solo project of Mauri Edo, a Sydney musician born in Barcelona. Walking the line between ambient, noise and drone music, Subespai paints experimental soundscapes by mixing acoustic and electronic audio sources with effect pedals, field recordings and other gadgets.
