Hess Is More in the Clocktower studio. Courtesy of artist, “stupidface”

Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 6-8pm

Mikkel Hess & the Hess Is More Ministry of Integration perform My Head is a Ballroom?, a work in progress developed at the Clocktower, plus Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter reveals his mural room (also in progress), and The New Dreamz give a mini-show in their project room.

Throughout the month of May, Mikkel Hess and his fellow musicians of Hess Is More Live have been working in the studio at the Clocktower Gallery to develop and arrange new material. This process has yielded a repetoire investigating relations among Folk, Disco, Pop, Afro, Punk, Jazz and more. On this evening the ensemble will play an intimate “work in progress” concert in the upper gallery – live testing this new music for the very first time. A selection of photographs by “stupidface” will be on view in the studio along with other elements from the process.

Hess Is More Live:
Michael Hanf – Vibraphone
Pavel Kogan – Guitar
Rasmus Bille Bahncke – SH101
Chris Berry – Electric Drums
Matt Parker – Horns & Keys
Mikkel Hess – Drums & Vocals

The same night, visitors will also have the chance to have a look at the mural of Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter, which will be painted white again the following week and turned into a sound installation piece. This piece will incorporate small speakers that reproduce the previously recorded sounds of the painting process. More information on his residency programĀ Aeromural can be found here.

The event will conclude with a Mini Performance by fellow Clocktower studio artists and performance artists The New Dreamz. More information on their residency and events here.
