Cold Genius is a new show from Sally Rodgers and Chris Smith that attempts to join the dots between concrete music, sound design, experimental beats and dirty electronics. Featuring music from artists like Lord Raja, Lusine, Floating Points and Clark it’s a journey into emotive abstraction, fractured rhythms and disintegrating loops.
DJ, Producer and Performer, Sally Rodgers is best known for her work as one half of Balearic House and Chill Out pioneers A Man Called Adam. But while it’s true she’s partial to a shimmering, cinematic soundscape, she also has a taste for music she describes as ‘abstract, sticky and weird’. Under their other alias, discrete machines, she and long-time collaborator Steve Jones push the limits of sonic experimentation. Leeds-based Graphic Designer, DJ and Producer Chris Smith also records under various aliases. As Enko he makes minimal tech-house with Manchester DJ and OASY promoter Max Wyatt, and as Bipassa his tracks combine environmental sounds with fluid synthetic melodies and minimalist beats.
