FILTHY LUCRE

Filthy Lucre puts on events that move from concert to gig to club night. Tied together by artistic concepts, such as cultic rituals and urban sprawl, our events are not determined by genre constraints but by a cohesive artistic vision. Founded in Cambridge by Anthony Friend and Joe Bates in 2011, Filthy Lucre is now London-based.

26-27 November 2016 at OMEARA

Filthy Lucre 7: Sounding Body was inspired by the eighteenth century idea that the body was comprised of resonant strings. Music vibrated them, shaking emotions and temperaments in time to its reverberations. Filthy Lucre explored the strange noises and mathematical constructions built on these Sounding Bodies.
