PROTEINS OF MAGIC // MARTIN TOMLINSON & COMPANY // MYNK
May 28 @ 7:30 pm£15
Living between T?maki Makaurau Auckland and Nashville, Tennessee, Kelly Sherrod is a multi-faceted artist practicing in both audio and visual media. She writes, produces and performs as Proteins of Magic, and makes visual worlds to translate her songs to screen by using claymation and digital art; creating an alchemy of sound, vision, time and nature.
There isn’t a single genre that describes the musical output of Proteins of Magic, but in broad terms it embodies the realm of Gothic; from the use of voices from elsewhere, layered upon one another, to the drama of chamber pop melded with eerie post-punk, she blurs the boundaries between innovative alt-folk and contemporary art music.
On stage she has a solitary, commanding presence, she doesn’t just transform, she almost seems possessed. Delivering her existential poetry over layers of loops of vocal harmonies, breath and flute, she fuses them together with her pulsing bass guitar.
Proteins of Magic is performing in 2023 at Big Ears Festival (USA), The Great Escape (UK), and Primavera (Barcelona).
Steering SELFISH CUNT along a course that straddled both art and music and regarded the live interaction of video projection and audience provocation as essential to the agit-punk politics of performance.
very special musicians.
MYNK are a London-based band who formed under the shackles of isolation. They quickly discovered their sound through the creation of remote demos before teaming up with frontman and producer Faris Badwan (The Horrors, Cat’s Eyes) and Max Heyes (Primal Scream, Massive Attack) to record their debut single “Boundaries,” out now via KRO Records. The band draw influence from a wide range of both audio and visual art, from minimalist pop to David Lynch, resulting in a visceral combination of pop-noir melancholia.
