      BIG WATER: CLUSTER AND :ZOVIET*FRANCE: LIVE
      an evening of swimming and floating with music

      19:30 � 22:30 Wednesday 10 March 2010
      Sunderland Aquatic Centre, Sunderland UK

      tickets: GBP 5.00 book online


      Sound travels 4.5 times faster underwater, a phenomenon that can be
      directly experienced during AV Festival 10. In the spectacular
      environment of Sunderland Aquatic Centre, two of Europe�s influential
      electronic music groups perform live for both underwater and pool-side
      listening, creating a once in a lifetime experience.

      By submerging, you can immerse yourself in one version of the music
      through an underwater soundsystem. For those who would rather sit back
      and relax, a separate poolside version of the performance can be
      heard, and by floating on the surface of the water you can mix the two
      together.

      Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius have been making music
      together as Cluster since 1969. Alongside Kraftwerk, Can and Faust,
      they are pioneers of krautrock and have been a major influence on
      musicians from David Bowie to Autechre. Now aged 75 and 65, they are
      more vital than ever and since they reunited in 2007 have performed at
      No Fun Festival and Documenta 12. This performance is a homage to
      their 1979 album 'Grosses Wasser' ('Big Water').

      :zoviet*france: is a prolific music group based in Newcastle, who are
      pioneers of ambient and electronic music. Formed in 1980, this
      performance marks their 30th anniversary.

      Supported by Newcastle-based DJs Fratelli di Rimini of the infamous
      Road to Rimini club night.

      Tickets are available for the water and poolside areas (swim suits
      required!), or if you prefer to stay dry, you can book a place in the
      raked seating overlooking the pool

      A FREE Festival coach departs from Newcastle Central Station at 19:15
      with a pick up at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art at 19:30, and
      departs Sunderland at 22:30. For details and to reserve a seat, email reservations@...

      In addition to this event, Wet Sounds will deliver underwater deep
      listening sessions at Sunderland Aquatic Centre during the Festival.
