Exploding Appendix

I recently answered the Exploding Appendix questionnaire - thank you to Bradley Tuck for inviting me to offer my thoughts, via some excellent questions.

Artist and composer, Nick Hudson from The Academy of Sun responds to the Exploding Appendix Questionnaire. Extract below, for the full response follow the link.

3. What, for you, is the purpose of art and culture?

To present the possibility of alternate realities – and simultaneously: to reflect and amplify idiosyncrasies, to simulate religious ecstasies, to put theatre curtains around a person’s solipsism or anxieties, to flood the monochrome realism of dystopia with hitherto unseen hues that can propel one towards changing the present/future reality, to connect people through stories, to make the amorphous pink/white noise of consciousness more manageable through narrative framing, to externalise urgent dreams, to project oneself into a preferable timeline, to bind and fortify energies and make communal ecstatic awe, bypassing religion (In some cases); to compress time and space, to expand time and space, to provide catharsis in a way which doesn’t leave a trail of bodies.

Rose Devoid Of Form, by The Academy Of Sun

Our new single Rose Devoid Of Ford incorporates field recordings of a train passing through Chernobyl, likewise a wire fence vibrating nearby.

Also a sample of The Buzzer/UBV-76 - the mysterious soviet shortwave radio station that has been broadcasting continuously since 1973.

And a field recording I made of birdsong at the grave of murdered Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko, in Highgate cemetery last year.

Play loud and enjoy xoo

Ce soir!

Last year we had the pleasure of being joined by artist and composer Nick Hudson (The Academy of Sun) to discuss the beginning of his The Quiet Earth Global Hypersigil Project. Over the year the project has developed in leaps and bounds. On the 10th September we will be joined by Nick Hudson as he explores how the project has developed.

The Quiet Earth Hypersigil Project is a multifaceted psychogeographical investigation into landscape, ecology, environmentalism, trauma, geopolitics and ritual, manifest as a global hypersigil, an album of songs, a 12-part video series, a 3d-video-mapping installation, and a volume of prose.
Join us for a compendious presentation - selections from the record, videos, sigils and readings.

The Exploding Appendix Avant-garde Art Practice & Research Group. Marwood Bar & Coffeehouse 730pm-1030pm 10th September 2019.

Brighton Young Carers

We finished off our summer programme of activities with a lovely family picnic and stunning display of the projection mapping/film-making work by young carers. This was projected on to specially built structures in the park and had to be seen to be believed. A huge thanks to Ece Polen Budak and Nick Hudson for leading the preceding workshops and running the artistic side of the event. Thanks also to our Trustees Amy, Feylyn and Jim, and our patron The Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex for attending. (photos by JimPix Photography)

It’s as much our duty to vocalize the good news as much as it is our responsibility to call out the manifold injustices.

More than 350 million trees have been planted in a single day to tackle deforestation, officials say.

Don't Let Go, by The Academy Of Sun

Okay so hi everyone.

We’re very excited to have finished this album we’ve been working on for two years.

And we’re about to head out on a UK jaunt with our dear friends and deep allies Night Tongue and Elisabeth Elektra.

All of this feels worth celebrating.

And so, we’re delighted to throw you all our cover of Don’t Let Go by the mighty En Vogue, which is a song I’ve personally had designs on recording since it came out.

What’s more - it’s a free download from Bandcamp, so knock yourselves out!

Come and see us this week in Glasgow, Manchester, London, Brighton, and enjoy the cover.

Thank you for your support. You RAWK.

life expectancy in norilsk, my hometown, is 10 years less than in the rest of Russia. factories pollute air with 1.900.000 tonnes of sulfur dioxide per year. we have a higher risk of oncology, lungs and heart diseases. this is a real picture of a real river in norilsk - daldykan river, 2016.
dear putin, go f**king swim in this river. hope you'll enjoy your 3rd eye, also hope ur dick will fall off.
on 8 july we release "BLACK SNOW" music video dedicated to this river and hundreds of other dead acid rivers on our planet.

Why plants don’t die from cancer

Humans and other mammals and birds would have been killed many times over by Chernobyl's radiation that plants in the most contaminated areas received. So why is plant life so resilient to radiation and nuclear disaster?
