Back for its second year after Ryuchi Sakamoto's series in 2018, the events will run through September and October. Laurel Halo will welcome a selection of artists including Wolfgang Voigt present GAS (live), Eli Keszler, DEBONAIR, Julia Holter, Rashad Becker, Eliane Radigue, Ellen Arkbro, Steven Julien aka Funkineven, Yosuke Fujita and more.
The line-up has been attentively curated for each event, with Halo herself stating: “For MODE, I wanted to invite artists who inspire through the clarity and urgency of their own unique perspectives, as well as represent various cities and sounds to which I am aesthetically beholden.
"Parts that form a fleeting whole, I’m excited to hear and see their work, flowing in cross-currents. These artists have informed my own practice; to me, they drive the conversation forward about what music and art can be.”
MODE launches on September 18 at the Round Chapel, a space that has been standing since 1871 in Clapton, East London. For this she brings along Julia Holter, Eli Kezler and Tashi Wada Ensemble.
Other shows include an all-night party on September 21 and a 10-hour live ambient event on September 28 with Wolfgang Voigt performing GAS live.
