Les Horribles Travailleurs live.
Segments of the performance by Les Horribles Travailleurs during the 'BLEEding blaCK NoiSe' exhibition - in Den Haag, 6 november 2017.
The performance by Les Horribles Travailleurs took place in the open air on this november evening, next to a body of water, while it was raining. These circumstances had their effect on both the performance itself as the quality of the sound and the recording of it (for instance, on some occasions, one can hear the rain and also some distortion by the wind).
Used for this situation: five cassetterorders; mixer; numerous tapes with sounds by LHT and some of the 'Psychogeographic Collaboration' project - with many soundartists involved.

Locatie Z, Willem Dreespark 312, Den Haag, The Netherlands
November 4-5, 2017
Bleeding Black Noise is a revision of Steven Parrino’s statement “My relation between Rock and visual art: I will bleed for you.” Here the curator replaces Rock with Noise, and celebrates the Bleeding as a release of the Black Noise, raw energy and formless potential.
The exhibition includes artworks by Gast Bouschet & Nadine Hilbert (Brussels, Belgium), Faith Coloccia (Seattle, US), Niels Geybels (Antwerpen, Belgium), Alessandro Keegan (New York City, US), Max Kuiper (Arnhem, Netherlands), and Michaël Sellam (Paris, France). Together their works on paper provide encounters with dust, electromagnetism, sympathetic magic, ecology, politics, and a passion for storms. Each of the artists are involved in experimental music—as active musicians or collaborators.
This exhibition is designed to appear near large bodies of water. In winter 2016 it premiered on the shore of the Great Lakes, in Chicago (US), during the season when the melted ice and city-street sludge mix in ecstatic swirls of primordial fluids, and when the snow causes audiovisual sensations to move to the forefront and include the perceiver within the elements themselves. In autumn 2017 it will reappear in Den Haag (NL), situated next to the North Sea in a region that is below-sea level, during the rain season, where the dark low-lying clouds echo the dark low-lying earth, and black canals snake across the city with opportunities for scrying.
