MIX TAPE VOLUME 2
The Animal Collective curated ATP is looming large and we’re excited today to release Volume 2 of the very popular mix tape. Curating and headlining the festival weekend this May, the band have chosen from amongst their collaborators and influences to bring together one of the most diverse and culturally important mixtures of live music ATP has seen in recent times. The event features an array of acclaimed acts including Big Boi of Outkast, Beach House, Terry Riley, Gang Gang Dance, Kurt Vile, Meat Puppets, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and The Frogs and many many more. Tickets on sale now via www.atpfestival.com
Last month to celebrate the stunning line-up, ATP released a free 2 hour MP3 Mix Tape website featuring music from many of the artists picked by Animal Collective and now we release Volume 2, an additional downloadable mix featuring more of the line-up including Atlas Sound, Omar-S, Oneohtrix Point Never and Terry Riley – available via http://www.atpfestival.com/assets/acmix/index.html
As previously announced we will be discussing Siddhartha by Herman Hesse at the weekend’s ATP Book Club. Penguin have kindly donated several copies of the book so anyone interested in participating in the book club who hasn’t read the book yet should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their booking reference to register their interest and claim a book. Please include your address, or better yet whether you will be attending one of our upcoming shows so we can hand you your book in person.
We also have a prize pack of 5 books courtesy of Ten Speed Press and Penguin including Mycelium Running, a manual suggesting growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, The Story of the Stone (Dream of the Red Chamber) a rich, magical work setting worldly events within the context of the Buddhist understanding that earthly existence is an illusion and karma determines the shape of our lives, Les Chants de Maldoror, one of the earliest and most astonishing examples of surrealist writing, hailed by the twentieth-century Surrealist movement as a formative and revelatory masterpiece, The Essential Rumi, exquisite renderings of the 13th-century Persian mystic’s words into American free verse by Coleman Barks capturing all the “inner searching, the delicacy, and simple groundedness” that characterize Rumi’s poetry while remaining faithful to the images, tone, and spiritual message of the originals and of course Siddhartha, the classic novel by Herman Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of a boy known as Siddhartha from the Indian sub-contintant during the time of the Buddha.
To enter to win these 5 books, you must be attending the festival and correctly answer the following competition question via email to email@example.com :

WET SOUNDS and A HISTORY OF SOUND ART INSTALLATIONS
ATP can also confirm for the event:
WET SOUNDS – underwater deep listening installations at the Butlins Pool with 2 sets of over water and 1 of underwater sound systems, effectively creating three levels of sound for a floating and diving audience. Fully immersed in sound, the experience is incredibly clear and intimate “…like being in the womb”. Joel Cahen plays a surreal abstract mash up / collage in duet with La Horrox. For more info see www.wetsounds.co.uk
A HISTORY OF SOUND ART – an engaging sound collage presenting an unique historical documentation of Sound Art from the early 20th century to present day. The composition weaves through different sound works throughout the century with narratives and ideas from some of the prominent artists in the field. It is an insightful retrospective into the craft of sound and its development as an artistic practice, from Edison’s first sound film in 1895 to today. Composed and Arranged by J Milo Taylor. Mixed by Joel Cahen.
ODDSAC SCREENING & CINEMA PROGRAMME
As part of the Animal Collective curated free Cinema programme we can confirm a screening of Oddsac – A visual album by Danny Perez and Animal Collective which has received stunning reviews over the last year.
