The forthcoming edition the LEV festival (Laboratory of Visual Electronics) in Gijón includes an impressive UK programme of seven projects that demonstrate the innovative force of the current British scene in the field of electronic sound creation and its relationship with the visual arts. The British Council continues with its commitment to opening new spaces for collaboration between avant-garde artists within the framework of its "Changing industries" programme in order to highlight new narratives arising from the current technological revolution. We support the LEV festival as a first level inspirational platform for the Spanish public. This year’s Gijón edition will continue in Madrid in the Autumn (October 17-20) with another significant representation of UK artists.

Iglooghost Live A / V [Brainfeeder. UK]
Seamus Malliagh is a very young London artist who creates music, videos and amazing images under the name of Iglooghost.His work takes place in a fictional world called Mamu, inhabited by strange gods and giant beings. A fantastic world that has its own language and morphology and expands with each new recording he releases.In his debut album, Neo Wax Bloom (Brainfeeder, 2017), Seamus built a crazy, intense and delirious soundtrack in which he introduced characters to create his fantasy world. In his later works, Iglooghost combines crystalline synthesizers, voices speaking in invented languages, orchestral nuances and a breath-taking rhythm.
