An evening with Touch, listening to the IKO loudspeaker amongst exotics plants in the Roof Garden’s amphitheatre. Join sound artist Bethan Kellough as we follow motions and contours of winds, waves and other atmospheric and geological processes, responding to their vibrancy, the spaces they reveal, and the moments we can spend immersed in timescales that expand beyond our lived experience.

Since 1982 Touch has been a label that embraces experimental electronic music, and has created audio-visual productions and live events across the world. Artists include Philip Jeck, Phill Niblock, Claire M Singe, Chris Watson, Jana Winderen and many more.

Sound artist Bethan Kellough weaves together musical and environmental sound-worlds to create immersive installations, performances and compositions. Her album Aven (Touch, 2016) has been described as “a film you watch with your ears” (Tiny Mix Tapes), “earthy and fantastical” (Norman Records) and “sometimes magical and sometimes terrifying” (Rolling Stone).
