20:00 – 20:30 // AYANKOKO
Ayankoko is the solo musical effort of multi-instrumentalist and composer David Somphrachanh Vilayleck; a fusion of jazz, sound design, traditional, noise, ambient, computer music, and classical.
Sound artist and guitarist David Vilayleck has been working for 20 years in the fields of jazz, dub, world, and experimental music.
With a musical background as guitarist-improviser, the project is an ever-evolving thing which questions the ear about sound perception, its raw nature, the definition of music and the concept of ugly-beauty.
“Hailing from Laos is ‘Ayankoko’ who manages to bring the classically folkish psychedelic culture rock to the modern world, creating a superb class of electronic cut-up material and traditionalism that feels super trippy. a rhythmic fest with mellowness and excitement at the same time!”
Yeah I know it sucks
“Laotian outfit Ayankoko crafts an electrified Molam track full of insane noodled wig out jamming.”
“Ayankoko’s “Beneath The Stains” squeals and shrieks through scratchy glitches and signals that crackle on a ghostly transmission.”

With a background in sound art, the texture of sound is of primary importance here. His work combines recordings of refined sound installation pieces (industrial fans, vibrating membranes) with crushing rhythmic noise pierced by sublime composed sequences.
Ben Jeans Houghton creates Improvised performances expressing aspects of his own magical practice through mantric glossolalia and spoken word, using repurposed effects pedals, loopers, gongs, ritual tools and costume.
