This concert, developed by two members of Crass, is the live manifestation of an ongoing series of performances and recordings.


Initiated by Rimbaud, the series pits performers against a visceral composition created and recorded by himself employing only his voice as a sound source. This has led to two collaborations with Webber. The second of these, Kernschmelze II, released to critical acclaim on Cold Spring Records, sees Libertine immersed in a maelstrom of processing, electronics and percussion.

This performance represents a structured improvisation based on this recording.


Eve Libertine, former vocalist with Crass, subsequently works across improvisation and contemporary vocal practice. “The voice comes straight from the core, that’s why I love it as my instrument.”

Charles Webber, an electronic artist, works across the disciplines of electronic music and experimental film.

Penny Rimbaud is a poet, philosopher, painter, musician and bread maker. He makes particularly good sour‑dough loaves.
