The Sun Never Sets Here (Summer Concerts and Other Causerie)

I am in Scotland right now.  I was with Graeme Smith in way up in Orkney for the last week, walking around, drawing, and writing.  It was great to camp for a week.  It was amazing to finally get to see a place where the sun almost never sets.  Now I am back in Edinburgh.  I am pretty excited for the performances to start, but I am also enjoying what is going on in the moment, modifying my synth stuff and making music.

This is part of the Ring of Brogdar, a neolithic stone circle thought to have been built between 2000 and 2500 BC, totally great.

Here is another stone age house, this one was hidden on the coast, and not on the maps:

Below is a favorite of mine, slime mold.

there are similarities across everythings

The schedule of performances as it stands right now is below.  More could be added (get in touch if it looks like I am near your area, we can see what is possible).  Its not a tour, its just experience.  Lets do that.

like I said more information later.

Then its Back to England.

Leeds, Fox and Newt, Sunday august 19, with Ashtray Navigations, and Cm nG

I am very happy to be playing a show again this summer in Leeds.  I like so much what Kieron wrote about me that I have to include it here:

“Jorge uses his rig of viola, electronics and voice to create deep and engrossing electroacoustic patterns and psychedelics. He was last seen in Leeds last September, whipping up a foot-stomping storm with dizzying layers of rhythmic loops and searing viola pyrotechnics. “


Ashtray Navigations’ Phil Todd doesn’t make alternative music: he creates alternate universes. Via a dizzying array of bands, projects, alter egos, labels, fanzines, concert promotions, distributions, collaborations and ad hoc groups he has spent the last two decades extrapolating What If? histories using derided, unfashionable and forgotten elements gathered from the dustbins of rock’n’roll’s chequered history, reimagining how things might have been in less reverent – or career-driven – hands. As a key figure behind the UK’s DIY underground, he was forging links between like-minded fringe musicians and releasing a constant stream of bewilderingly consistent material long before the internet made such activities easy or commonplace.
Cm nG (Stoke)
New electronics, tapes and percussion duo of Andy Jarvis (First person label, Asymptotem, Sculptress, A Warm Palindrome) and Michael Walsh.
+ one more tbc.
£5 Entry
This will be the last show Kieron be promoting at the Fox and Newt,  and I am super happy to be able to be part of it.

After that is probably Manchester, more info TBA, and then, wow, Brighton, one of my favorite places on earth.  I will be there for a few days with Ian Murphy and hopefully we will record somethings and walk around the coast, cook some good food, and maybe go visit Rowan in the woods!

This show is going to be great.  According to the info (below) I am being augmented.  I look forward to that experience.


on a rare visit to UK…….

augmented by Brightons finest




8PM – 12AM

Then its off to Holland and Belgium for a handful of things:

first will be a show in Brussels

 31st of august @ Karel ball

Gael Moissonnier will be playing that night, hopefully the modular synth stuff like he did in Prague a couple of months ago!

I will add flyers and pictures and information as I have them, the rest of the

after that I will again visit Maastricht, Holland where there will be a concert on the 2nd September at B32, again, more info soooonnnn

and then, the last thing I have planned is to perform at a festival in Liege being curated by the very dangerous Philippe Cavaleri of the seminal Bruitale Orgasmne.  I am not sure what day I should be playing but I think it will be between the 5th and 9th of September.

(look, the west coast of the Orkney mainland looks like northern california)

Then I am back to Czech R, to take this years new students to Slavonice for the start of the year trip (its too weird to say a “start of the year retreat”, you can’t retreat before you start!)  If anyone sees someplace in this mess that they would like me to come visit and maybe play a show or something, let me know, I am pretty flexible!

it happened, after all
