We are utterly delighted and very excited to host a special evening of immersive sound & visual happenings featuring live music. This marks the first anniversary of Kosar Contemporary and we are taking this opportunity to announce the launch of Kosar Sounds, a new platform for live music, sound/art Installations and artists showcase.
The big industrial gallery space will turn into an intimate setting for live performance and DJ sets in the evening, with an exciting line-up featuring Kayla Painter, Run Logan Run and Orryx.
We will also showcase immersive /sound and visual artworks from selected members of The Artist Project Space for the duration of the evening. The event is ticketed so please book yours before they sell out.
Depending on where you land in Kayla Painter’s universe, the outlook could be very different. She sculpts subversive rhythm tracks that play on club tropes while crackling with an energy sourced from somewhere far away.
A head on collision of pounding tribal drums and guttural saxophone. Architects of intense contrast the duo’s diverse and precise instrumentation regularly flirts with fragility and raw power. Formed through a shared passion for improvisation, spiritual jazz and heavier experimental music, they are Andrew Neil Hayes (saxophones / electronics) and Matt Brown (drum kit / percussion).
In 2019 they received the Montreux Jazz Talent Award for their performance at the festival.
Mesmerising solo project from Christelle Atenstaedt. Her music is both expressive and introspective, a hypnotic ritual of layered synth effects, beats and soaring vocals.
We will also showcase immersive sound and visual artworks from the members of The Artist Project Space (TAPS) for the duration of the evening. Details will be available on the Kosar Contemporary's website
