Anucha (aka chia nnamdi) presents an audiovisual performance, bringing fragments of his experimental compositions together with distorted VHS video processes for the first time.
The work builds on a music performance originally presented at Edinburgh Art Festival (2021) as part of the Associate Artist Programme curated by Tako Taal. The piece built a collective imagination of a utopian future by tuning into the temporal resonances of the many black abolitionists that visited Edinburgh in the 19th century.
Two years on, the set of music grows from its infancy and continues to challenge popular music sensibilities, leaning towards a culmination of ambient folk, experimental hip hop and post punk.
