Harvestworks presents nowTHENafter, a surround-sound DVD compilation of new experimental works by composers from the post-No Wave electronic, acoustic and underground scene. Inspired by the turn of the century and produced by Ike Yard founder and post-punk legend Stuart Argabright, the project includes Mark C, duos/collaborations with Ikue Mori and DJ Olive, David Linton and Charles Cohen, Stuart Argabright and Judy Nylon in addition to turntablist Marina Rosenfeld, hybrid artist Ray Sweeten and 8-bit Construction Set. These artists continue to add their distinctive musical sensiibilities to New York City

Founded as a not-for-profit organization by artists in 1977, Harvestworks has helped a generation of artists create new works using technology. Our mission is to support the creation and presentation of art, works achieved through the use of new and evolving technologies and to bring together innovative practitioners from all branches of the arts collaborating in the use of electronic media.

Proceeds from the Harvestworks event will foster innovative explorations in art and technology by contemporary artists.

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
