Horlicks and Armageddon

Researched and devised by Sarah Angliss, this show delves into rarely seen archives and personal testimony to tell the story of Britain’s secretive nuclear survivalists. It turns swifty from an entertaining sweep through the archives to a stark reminder of the roots of many of the most disturbing trends in modern British politics. Awarded most groundbreaking show of Brighton Festival and Fringe 2013.

Loving the Machine – TEDx talk

In this optimistic view of mechanisation for TEDx Brighton (2011), I reveal some surprising connections between two types of dance music, inspired by the relentless beat of the factory machine, which flourished two centuries apart. The earliest was devised by women working in Lancashire cotton mills.

Loving the Machine – notes

Background notes from my TEDx talk Loving the Machine. We can’t say with certainty that industrial music was born in Detroit or post-war Germany. It’s undoubtedly had many beginnings – and one of those was in the cottton mills of Lancashire, in the early nineteenth century, when women clog dancers mimicked the sounds and actions of the factory machines.

Infrasonic – haunted music?

A controlled psychological experiment, in the form of two back-to-back concerts. These concerts were highly unusual because some of the music was laced with infrasound (extreme bass sound, below 20Hz in frequency). It took place in the Purcell Room, London, in 2003.

Infrasonic – the pipe

A description of the pure-tone infrasound generator, specially designed for our experiments by the UK National Physical Laboratory. This page includes a critique of the resultant method of creating infrasonic notes for experiments.
