Too pumped for words would describe Heat & Light's mood after confirming a gig with seminal performance artist Sudden Infant. Joke Lanz aka Sudden Infant creates an unique blend of physical sound-poetry and dadaistic vocal expressions, using contact microphones, prerecorded soundloops and noises. "Sudden Infant is Berliner Joke Lanz's artistic vehicle to both explore extreme physical and emotional states, and to hold on to the innocence of childhood" -The Wire.
The only time I’ve seen Sudden Infant perform he was running around the venue giving his son a piggy back whilst they both blew whistles – on a large screen was a video of someone taking a shit and straight after a woman with a giant bird head came on stage and threw glitter at us all. It was awesome.
