Actress returns with a brand new album on Ninja Tune and a new music system called “AZD” (pronounced “Azid”), a chrome reflected journey into a parallel world. To prepare you for what lies ahead you can listen to the album’s lead track, ‘X22RME’ (pronounced “Extreme”) which elegantly plays between the lines of Oriental classic rave and Balinese warehouse Techno machined in a Rotherhithe lock up welding the grooves into a seamless cracked joint.
Actress, aka Darren Cunningham, will debut his new show at Convergence, Village Underground on 24 March. Presented as AZD, Cunningham says it “will be a test frame for linking circuits using various forms of language — Midi globalised language, Lyrical language, Tikal Graffiti code and various other Synthesiser language — to create one intelligent musical instrument called AZD, if successful it will produce the first translucent, non-soluble communication sound pill synergised through impressionistic interpretations of technological equipment. This is the music vitamin of the Metropolis”.
