Wet Sounds ‘Squelch’ / Joel Cahen & And What? –
Wet Sounds joins forces with And What? to transform London’s historic Ironmongers Row Baths through sound, light and performance.
This event is VERY limited capacity – book in advance to avoid disappointment.
There are two sessions – one at 19:45-20:30 – and 20:45-21:30 (please arrive in enough time to change and enter the pool!) Each session lasts approx 45minutes. Please make sure you book for the desired time…
The water surface becomes a threshold between different worlds and two entirely different experiences. Abstract electronica by Wet Sound’s Joel Cahen is coupled by a distinctly queer programme from And What? and provides a surreal soundscape to (sub)aquatic performances above and below the surface.
Joel Cahen (Wet Sound founder)
Julie Atlas Muz (international performance artist and mermaid)
Lasana Shabazz (performance artist)
J. Aria (providing sound & performance)
Out to Swim (London’s very own LGBTQIA+ Synchronised swimming troupe)
SDNA (projections and light)
Together they create an unusual and immersive world of sound, visuals and performances including some of the best musicians and performers from the Queer scene, taking you on a immersive but loose journey through fear to enlightenment. The pool is open to all, come and dip your toes in our murky shark infested waters.
Wet Sounds has been transforming swimming pool for art events around the world at festivals such as ATP, Red Bull Music Academy Montreal, Helsinki Festival, Insomnia Festival and many more…… this is a not to be missed collaboration. Don’t forget your swim suits!
