Long+Wrong/Tracer Trails with Eli Keszler

Day-long experimental music event features Scotland's best noise artists

This day-long exploration of experimental music is headlined by American free percussionist Eli Keszler (pictured), complete with invented instruments and complex, intricate layering of rhythm and drones. Featuring ten of Scotland's best noise artists, the all-dayer begins with four hours of improvisation – including the debut show of the new collaboration between improv champs Usurper, Neil Davidson and Aileen Campbell. A 'weird dinner' and documentary about Scotland's fringe music scene follow, plus four hours of noise to round off the day. Do not expect to leave with your mind unblown.

Eli Keszler, Neil Davidson & Fritz Welch, Grant Smith & Greg Thomas and Usurper play The Banshee Labyrinth, Edinburgh, Fri 8 Apr; Eli Keszler, Usurper and Neil Davidson & Aileen Campbell play Nice ‘n’ Sleazy/The Griffin/CCA, Glasgow, Sat 9 Apr.

Campbell is a Glaswegian 'composersuperimposerperformerclown', whose improvisational, performative works often combine mundane actions with a withering look at contemporary consumerism and music production. Here he plans to disrupt the buffet at the Tracer Trails all-dayer.
