Loula Yorke is a live artist and noise-maker whose work harnesses electronic signal as a musical tool. Her work is powerful and liberatory in nature: celebrating dance, movement and noise, fostering an enabling ‘DIY’ sensibility, and ultimately seeking to break down barriers of entry into music and sound.
As one half of TR-33N, Loula has played live at Glastonbury and Boomtown, as well as having collaborative work broadcast on BBC Radio1 and 1Xtra.
During 2019 Loula played live in support of The Orb and Talvin Singh, releasing 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 on the Bandcamp Daily blog, and tracks were broadcast on BBC Radio 3, ResonanceFM and NTS.
Loula runs synth-building and performance workshops #AtariPunkGirls and has been commissioned by a performing arts festival to develop the concept into a staged performance during 2021.
In response to COVID-19, Loula co-founded a new fortnightly experimental electronics livestream, SonitusLIVE.
Her work is funded by Arts Council England.
