Tri Angle-signed producer Vessel can’t be accused of stopping short with bold ambition. His second album - 2014’s ‘Punish, Honey’ - was a deft execution in heady electronics and genre-meshing ideas, a background in metal furthering Sebastian Gainsborough’s boundary-pushing ethos.
He’s gone one further, with a special performance of his music alongside the Innix Ensemble, visuals being provided by Sam Wiehl.
Not only that - the performance took place at London’s Tate Britain, combining classical and jazz in an avant-garde context.
“It’s an incredible building,” Gainsborough told Philips and Noisey ahead of the performance. “My dad thinks I’m more legitimate because I’m playing at the Tate Britain now, so that’s nice.”
He added: “It’s always fascinating to take yourself out of your comfort zone. The size of the room… All this art on the walls. It’s a silent place, a place of contemplation for visual art. To fill it up with music is a great thing.”
Vessel’s piece goes hand in hand with the Tate’s renovation, exploring the theme of transition in terms of communication.
