Being shown in full at Further on May 6th with Howlround attempting to recreate their soundtrack to it live for the first time, here are two excerpts from Psyché Tropes‘ label head, Steven McInerney‘s film, ‘A Creak In Time’.

Announcing a new venture put together by DJ Food (Ninja Tune / Solid Steel) and Pete Williams (Eikon / Out Of The Wood) – combining over 20 years of professional experience in the music and graphic industries, a collision of Light, Sound and Design… Further.
An irregular event held in different places, it’s not a club night, it’s not monthly, there’s no dance floor. It HAS got all the things we love in it though: experimental music and film, food and drink, socialising and a bit of record hunting. Taking old analogue image making techniques from the 20th century and recontextualising it into new spaces for today.
The first event is on May 6th at The Portico Gallery, a hidden treasure in the heart of West Norwood and a venue very dear to us that offers an extremely adaptable space to project, perform and present our guests in. We will be looking to feature artists who present a visual as well as musical side to their work whilst we will act as residents.
We have Jim Jupp (Belbury Poly) and Julian House (The Focus Group) from Ghost Box Records playing a rare audio visual set and Howlround sound tracking Steven McInerney’s short film, ‘A Creak In Time’.
Pete and I will be pulling all manner of projections, films, slides and FX out to illuminate the gallery at the beginning and end of the evening to compliment our DJ sets.
There will be food on sale from local café Pintadera, a fully licensed bar and plenty of seating. Michael from the nearby Book & Record Bar will also have a stall selling hand-picked stock for the event.
Venue: The Portico Gallery, 23 Knights Hill, West Norwood, London, SE27 0HS
Doors: 7.30 and we’re all done by midnight. Let’s go Further…
Further are excited to be involved with the Orb-curated ‘Ambient Evening’ at the Royal Festival Hall on April 21st.

Main auditorium performances will be from the Orb, Roger Eno, Youth and Metamono.Tickets are on sale now but selling fast.
