Event: Past Present Future Space-Time, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire, September 10 2011


It’s time to dig out the wizard hat, bask in the sickly glow of oil projectors and enter the fourth dimension as Wysing Arts Centre explores the legacy of psychedelia.

Past Present Future Space-Time is sure to stretch the mind to its expansive limits with a day-long event that includes live music, talks, performances and screenings exploring utopian futures.  

Wysing’s second annual music event will trace the emergence of psychedelia from the genesis of the term, through ‘60s counterculture to contemporary art.

Musically, don’t expect Syd Barrett wannabes mumbling Chocolate Watch Band covers.

Instead, prepare for a spectrum of noise from dubstep to minimal, with the loosely classical Invisible Polytechnic Orchestra taking pride of polyphonic place.  

Specially created structures will house events across Wysing, including Giles Round’s reinterpretation of constructions from architect Ken Isaac’s book How To Build Your Own Living Structures (1974).

Artists currently in residence at Wysing will also contribute to the event, including Damien Roach, Mark Essen, Hilary Koob-Sassen and Kate Owens.
