Discrepant presents a night of far out ethnic discrepancies headlined by tribal field recorder manipulator Kink Gong.
Kink Gong, (Laurent Jeanneau), is a Frenchman living in China; a specialist in field recordings who has spent most of the last two decades documenting unsung virtuosos and esoteric music from the planet’s remotest corners.
Having released a collection of over 100 CDs via his own label, Kink Gong recordings, Laurent’s also releasing his own electro-acoustic transformations of unique tribal performances via the new Discrepant imprint.
Presenting a mix of one off ‘on the spot’ live performances, local radio fragments, market scratched CDs, street sellers VCDs, TV spots and anything else he puts his hands on, Kink Gong constructs mesmerizing electronic textures with a unique and captivating sound material.
This is Kink Gong’s only date in the UK. It will be supported by ERGO PHIZMIZ and IAIN CHAMBERS
