The Bug

THE BUG presents 'SIRENS': A Symphony for Foghorn, Bass Drone, Siren and Loud Volume

London premiere for an intensely personal new work by Kevin Martin aka The Bug that blurs the boundaries between live performance and immersive installation. This extended 40 minute piece was originally commissioned to accompany Nik Nowak's exhibition at Berlin's prestigious Berlinische Galerie. A world away from The Bug’s trademark club warfare, yet still reflecting Martin’s ongoing obsession with deep space/bass probes and invasive frequency washes, 'Sirens' was originally devised as a therapeutic response to critical operations his newborn son had recently endured. The result is a durational avalanche of sound, light and physical sensation, building from the quietest whisper to the most deafening roar.
