Immersion is an electronic music project of duo Malka Spigel of Minimal Compact and her husband Wire frontman Colin Newman. The couple have announced details of their new album, entitled ‘Sleepless’. ‘Sleepless’ follows on from the duo’s last album ‘Analogue Creatures Living On An Island’. Matt Schulz of Holy F*ck makes a guest appearance on one track on the album while there is also a collaboration with Gil Luz and Asi Weitz of EBM band Hexenschuss.
The duo will precede the album’s release with a special event in Brighton that they’re calling Nanocluster. It will be taking place on Friday 8th June at The Rose Hill arts hub venue, located at 70-71 Rosehill Terrace, Brighton BN1 4JL.
Immersion will play a 30-minute set followed by a guest 30-minute set from Ulrich Schnauss and a final 30-minute set featuring Immersion and Schnauss in collaboration. This event will mark the fourth edition of Nanocluster from Immersion.
At once uplifting and otherworldly, the music of Ulrich Schnauss combines multilayered synthesizers with beats and ethereal vocals, serving as an aural escape route from the trappings of reality. As Schnauss explains, “I’ve always used making and listening to music as a way to escape – putting on headphones is a way to leave reality behind for a while, reminding yourself why it still makes sense to carry on”. You can read about Ulrich’s 2017 Brighton concert that the Brighton & Hove News reviewed here. He has also been a member of Tangerine Dream since 2014.
You can purchase your tickets here and the event runs from 7:30pm to 11:00pm.
