R&R Rat Race at the Witch Hazel School Phase 1

Asparagus Piss Raindrop their collective endeavour Asparagus Piss Raindrop published in the month of August Two Thousand and Seventeen at the very welcome and warmly bibliophilial invitation of Matt and Jess of Good Press issuing forth from archives, hard drives and box files of ourselves and other selves, performers and past endeavours. Commissions ensuing, commentaries and paraphrases, digressions and designs uplifting both the group and the group. Their progress confirmed within prose translations, lists, questions, illuminations, accounts and summaries. Readings thereafter reconfiguring and re-assembling the corpus through radio space and pastoral mediations.

 

It’s Called Discharge

I love this new piece we’ve written, said Julia. But I think it should be faster. How can we make it faster? Asked Fritz. Let’s put it on wheels, said Julia. Will it be able to go around corners? Asked Liene? Yes, said Neil.

Fast forward to April 2016 >>>>>

It’s Called Discharge

The New Performance by Asparagus Piss Raindrop for 6+ Roller Skaters and amplified Roller Rink. Semi conductor life lines of symmetry exceed centrifugal life boat love ins. Kind of Like the moment you noticed that Cole from Sunset Beach was in But I’m a Cheerleader but louder, faster, longer and with a flashback corner. But seriously: afforded the use of the Roller Stop Roller Disco for crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax music we will continue to push beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Now and forever.

Asparagus Piss Raindrop return to Glasgow with a month long infestation at Transmission Gallery. The first of three performance events falls on Saturday the 1st November where provisional ‘raw materials of antiquity’ will be performed. These will gradually and insistently worm their way into the group’s hive mind there to ferment until Spring 2015 when the group gag reflex reopens the future of our collective trust angles: Performances in Nantes, Glasgow and The beyond.

Glissanding Dissenters in the Peninsular Bathosphere  – Lucy Duncombe, Peter Nicholson, Neil Davidson, Liene Rozite, Fritz Welch. Glissanding Dissenters In the Peninsular Bathosphere offers a third core sample of APR’s development work; unearthing pre-historical glitter, crystal formation organising and intimacy as felt by metamorphic rocks.

Trans Poncho In Posse April 2014 Tectonics Festival Iceland – Neil Davidson, Michael Duch, Julia Scott, Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson, Fritz Welch. This work was a three hour collaborative composition built around slug reproduction that fused synthetically the performers with the asophogeal node points of Harpa concert hall; choking the building in an erotic tour de farce. This project was supported by Creative Scotland.

There’s A Cloud That Only Rains Piss And Follows Me Wherever I Go September 2013 Music Language Festival DCA Dundee – Penny Chivas, Alan McKendrick, Neil Davidson, Fritz Welch. This performance amalgamated the following elements: a text paraphrasing the musical prejudices of the main character of Huysman’s Against Nature, a monologue extracted from Alan McKendrick’s play Finished With Engines, a series of a-typical verbs given to an unfamiliar dancer, monosylabic jazz guitar parentheses and eruptive-perambulatory noise events with vocal commentary.

This performance was constructed from 18th century children’s games, Schubert’s chamber music, Death Metal, collaborative dance strategies and a pub quiz.
