Beautiful Unit set to return to brighten our October nights

Beautiful Unit are back for a full performance at The Wolf On Arm Friday 16th October.

The Model is delighted to announce the second New Spaces for Music gig of the winter season. Following their taster Guerrilla gig on O’Connell Street for Culture Night Sligo, Beautiful Unit are back in Sligo in the Wolf on Arm (former Wolfe Tone Street Pharmacy) on Friday 16th October for a full performance which is guaranteed to brighten our October nights.

Helmed by guitarist Brian Mooney, Beautiful Unit released their debut album Erupean Son earlier this year. Mooney is a well-established musical magic man on the Irish scene having played with everyone from Jape, David Kitt and Si Schroeder and with his own band, The Idiots. Beautiful Unit explores the sonic possibilities of real time sound manipulation using 8 bit sampling, repetitive grooves and live music. The audio performance is accompanied by visuals designed by Hector Castelles.

“A sonic technique that oozes character and distinction, rhythms thumped out on toy drum sets, strums on borrowed banjo and music that thrums to, in the words of Mooney himself, “ The pulse of the static from the jack-to-jack” Our advice — Don’t let this one pass you by”

The Irish Times

In this autumnal release, Beautiful Unit explores the sonic possibilities of real time sound Manipulation using 8-bit sampling, repetitive grooves and live music. The release has been devised specifically for a once off tour of Ireland in October 2009 which sees a stop-off at The Model in Sligo.

This performance is presented by The Model with funding from The Music Network Performance and Touring Award.
