Teleplasmiste Teleplasmiste London / Glastonbury Téléplasmiste is the duo of Mark O Pilkington (Raagnagrok, Urthona) and Michael J York (Coil, Cyclobe). The pair explore electricity, and nature, through the use of synthesisers, including two identical, extremely rare Fenix semi-modular synthesisers, as well as acoustic drone instrumentation, including bagpipes, with the intention that the ear finds it hard to distinguish between electronic and acoustic elements. Previous performances have included a special exploration of the acoustic properties of Farnborough Wind Tunnel as part of the Speed of Sound arts festival in July 2014, in which the resonant frequencies of the space were combined with frequencies believed to have certain physiological effects. Accompanying Téléplasmiste is the Pond Scum Light Show, a series of live analogue liquid light projections devised by Jennifer Pengilly and Jamie Sutcliffe. An exploration of liquidity, site-specificity, and contaminated composition, the fluid projections are produced in an improvisational manner alongside the music of Téléplasmiste, using a combination of gathered natural materials, chemical surfactants and sculpted vessels, the light shows evoke microbial netherworlds, pool portals and subaquatic domains.
