Much like how Arca left his small label home of UNO after contributing to Yeezus for the much larger Mute Records, his pal and fellow Yeezus contributor Evian Christ is leaving Tri Angle for Warp Records.
Before releasing anything on the label though, he’s presenting an installation at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art from July 23-26. Here’s the description:
Warp Arts, in partnership with Evian Christ & David Rudnick, present a series of materials recalling and responding to the events of The Trance War, which took place in Europe (1998 – ongoing). The presentation will contain an archive of publications, pamphlets and posters spanning the period of Trance expansion to its eventual contemporary ruin, and the temporary installation of Britain’s first public monument in commemoration of the 30,000 Dogs whose lives were lost during the disputed conflict. The installation includes a memorial fanfare composed for the occasion. Join Evian Christ & David Rudnick in the ICA Theatre to mark the opening on the 23rd July.
Well there you have it. Meanwhile, stream Evian Christ’s Kanye collaboration, “I’m In It,” below…
