Loula Yorke is a live artist and noise-maker whose work harnesses the creative potential of electronic signal as a musical tool. Her practice seeks to give power to audiences: dancing in the space where techno meets leftism. Her primary sound generators are a family of modular synthesisers housed in roughly-hewn chunks of wood.
As one half of TR-33N, Loula has performed live at Glastonbury Festival and Boomtown, and had collaborative work broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. During 2019 Loula has played live in support of Talvin Singh and The Orb, and released her debut solo album ‘ysmysmysm’ on Detroit label, Junted.
Loula’s first physical release, LDOLS, a cassette of one-take live recordings made straight onto reel-to-reel, dropped on bespoke tape label Rum Records in October 2019. The release was included in the Best Electronic Music on Bandcamp monthly round-up on the Bandcamp Daily blog, and a track was broadcast on the Freeness show on BBC Radio 3.
Loula runs femme-centred synth-building and performance workshops #AtariPunkGirls. She has been commissioned to develop the concept into a staged performance for 2020.
