without appeal launched its first two projects across two events in February and March, 2017.
The first took place on February 25th at Echo Buecher in Berlin, organised and hosted by Occulto. It featured live performances by The Old Dream of Symmetry, Sferics and Asfast, as well as a DJ set from Italian underground legend Nana Bianca.
The second was held on March 14th, as part of Sonic Imperfections’ long running monthly concert series. Held at the Montague Arms in Peckham, South London, the evening played host to live sets from The Old Dream of Symmetry, fearless improviser Mark Browne and the duo of James Malone & Joe Wright (who also perform and release music under the moniker Onin).
At both concerts, copies of WA001 Sferics/The Old Dream of Symmetry Split 7" acetate were available alongside copies of WA002 - Tracing Commons. WA002 is a publication associated with the spatial intervention undertaken by without appeal at the Art Guard premises in Earl's Court, London in November 2016. Featuring both co-founders as well as Romanian artist and Art Guard resident Raluca Branea, the catalogue both documents the three acts of the intervention as well as supplimenting it with additional texts and work from each of the participants. WA002 is printed as a colour newspaper in an edition of 50. For more information on either of these, please visit the Catalogue section of our website.
We would like to thank Alice Cannava from Occulto, and Nigel Bryant and Ian Faragher from Sonic Imperfections for making these two events possible.
