Following the brilliant SMS Slingshot last week, we're offering another evening of international jiggery-pokery with screens and performances!

Slub, a band of computer programmers will be making electronic music from text-based code, live in Arthouse Square. Slub have performed widely including at Netaudio, Sonar, Sonic Acts, Ars Electronica, STRP, Club Transmediale, Ultrasound and the Secret Garden Party. The code will be projected onto the back off FACT's rear facade and played out of FACT's sound system. 

See this video for an idea of what to expect ...
