New Cities and Memory live show announced

The second ever Cities and Memory live show has been announced, taking place on Saturday 26 October in Oxford, UK – it will be an evening of live electronic music from Oxford and Bristol, in the intimate confines of the Port Mahon, one of our favourite music venues.

You can find out more about the event here.


Cities and Memory is a global collaborative sound project mapping and remixing the world, one sound at a time. Covering 87 countries and more than 2,500 sounds, almost 600 artists around the world have taken part.

The Cities and Memory live show – accompanied by live visuals – presents some of the highlights of the project as pulsing ambient electronica for fans of Stars of the Lid, Fennesz, Laurie Spiegel and field recording.

A reminder of the highlights from our last performance:

Other artists performing on the night will be:


Dagga Domes is an Oxford-based electronic collective by Jeremy Moors and Kit Monteith. Expect pulsing analogue electronics and soaring anthemic leads.

Their recent work includes remixing Oxford luminaries Foals.


Flag Fen is a bio-electrical resistance project developed by former members of Bristol noise-beat outfit
Big Joan. In development since 2017, its roots lie in an unsettling encounter with a dissident
archaeologist some years earlier.

At great personal risk, project leaders Adam Burrows and Keith Hall combine music, words and imagery
to unlock the secrets of a Bronze Age settlement that was destroyed by burning, and the site’s
mysterious connection to major historical events of the last 40 years.

The project includes input from a fluctuating group of collaborators including Liam O’Connell (My
Octopus Mind), Steve James (Geisha Noise Research Group) and Michael O’Neill (Tesla Tapes /
FuckPunk / Gnod).

In April 2019 development resumed at a secret location following the destruction of vital equipment in a
warehouse fire.


After a two year hiatus, After The Thought is slowing making a return to writing and performing all-new material that straddles the line between electronica and post-rock.
