NEXT LIVE MODULAR SHOW – Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston, London – 27 February 2023

Loula Yorke is a composer, sound artist and improviser with a specialism in modular synthesis.

Yorke’s trademark improvised hardware-only live sets see her building abstract sonic collages into powerful beat workouts backed by kaleidoscopes of interlocking and repeating algorithmically-derived melodies. She’s had radio play on BBC Radio 3, Radio 1 and 1XTRA, and coverage in Electronic Sound, The Wire, DJ Mag, and Bandcamp Daily. In 2020 her community-focused electronics practice was recognised with a Special Commendation from the Oram Awards. Her 2021 SPILL Commission Atari Punk Girls – an audacious and energetic live show co-composed with a group of female and minority gender teenagers who built their own instruments – was recommended by audiences as an “unexpected highlight of the festival”.

Yorke is a Sound Generator artist for 2022, developing new pieces on ‘mothering and daughtering’ supported by Sound UK. She currently also improvises as OULAN together with poet-vocalist Una Lee. During 2022 they’ve played at Colchester Arts Centre, Cafe Oto, London, and the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast.
