19.40-20.00: ANNE-JAMES CHATÔN (FR)
This poor low intensity literature, known as «ephemera», and comprising a multitude of documents printed out by innumerable machines – bank slips, shopping receipts, promotional flyers, customer loyalty cards, business cards, bus, train and metro tickets, etc. – is the source of Anne-James’ quests into sound, poetry and visual art.

21.02: DYLAN NYOUKIS (UK) solo
“A restless hurricane of mangled-throat vocalisation, wobbly tape murk, and feral punk/noise, the sound is urgently alive and human with a volatile undercurrent of absurd/sinister humor.”
21.20: LUKE POOT (UK) solo
“Poot puts out the misery like a wheelie bin on a Wednesday night with a thick slice of that Black Lace club classic ‘Superman’. Hitch a Ride!”
