Event: Muscles of Joy at Sneaky Pete’s / Stereo

Glasgow-based collective Muscles of Joy is an absolute collaboration in sound. Working outwith chord structures and assignable band roles, its highly individual production is contingent on each member’s style of contribution, where instruments and vocal sections are often swapped between players. Tracks initially emerge from loose improv sessions, and form the basis for a more orchestrated and labour-intensive scenarios, while the band’s live performances often employ Katy Dove’s video work as a visual counterpoint. Muscles of Joy are comprise of artists Anne-Marie Copestake, Katy Dove, Leigh Ferguson, Sophie Macpherson (whose video work ‘Deep Dancing’ is commissioned for the THE VOICE IS A LANGUAGE), Victoria Morton, Jenny O’Boyle, Ariki Porteous and Charlotte Prodger. They will be playing at Sneaky Pete’s, 14 April, Edinburgh; and at Stereo, Glasgow, 18 April.
