Tear Fet: A Preview

The next Other Room takes place on August 19th at 7pm at The Castle Hotel. Sarah Kelly has unfortunately had to reschedule but Tear Fet has very kindly stepped in. See the middle column for more details about the event.

‘Tear Fet is the sound-making alias of Matt Dalby, a Manchester artist in various media. His most recent project was a walk around the outside of the M60 on 30 May, generating material for several ongoing extended pieces. Tonight’s semi-improvised performance, called Icarus, grows out of a text work from that process.

Matt’s collection of short improvisations, Underpath, came out last October on Chocolate Monk records, and he’s one of 30 artists featured in the pop-up text art exhibition Total Recall at Bury Art Gallery.

You can follow Matt as Tear Fet on SoundCloud, as well as on YouTube under his own name, and at his blog, santiago’s dead wasp.’
