Performance and Procedure – a workshop with Mark Fell and Rian Treanor

BEK 02.06.2024 15.0002.06.2024 18.00


Mark Fell and Rian Treanor invite artists to join a performance workshop that will explore group dynamics using procedural systems. 

This workshop hopes to bring together artists working a wide variety of different practices – not only electronic music. This could be voice, movement, projection, acoustic sound, objects, etc. Participants will look at performance as a procedure, developing, exploring and interrogating different modes of performance, as well as question how diverse factors affect performance, from physical spaces to performer relationships, timeframes to instrumentation. The session will include discussion, planning, performance, and analysis and lead to a further performance later in June in Bergen. Participants are required to be technically “self-sufficient”, so if you use video projection, bring a projector, or if you use electronic sound, bring cables and a speaker. If you have equipment needs you can ask BEK for help with certain items – please contact no later than 27 May. 

Time: Sunday, 2 June, 15:00–18:00. 
Place: BEK, C. Sundts gate 55, Bergen Norway
Sign-up: Sign up via this form by 30 May.
The workshop is free and will be held in English. 

Please contact us at for any questions.


Mark Fell is a UK-based multidisciplinary artist. Recognised as being “one of the most compelling and influential electronic artists in the world” (South Bank Centre), his practice draws upon electronic music subcultures, experimental film, contemporary philosophy and radical politics, and typically explores issues such as time-perception, technology, cognition, and collaborative process. Over the past 30 years Fell’s output has grown into a significant body of work: from early electronic sound works and recorded pieces, to installation, critical texts, curatorial projects, educational systems and choreographic performances.
Fell´s recent works, drawing from sacred geometries to programming structures, underline his particular interest in non-linear systems and structures, and our complex interrelationships with them. 


Rian Treanor re-imagines club culture, experimental art and computer music, presenting an insightful and compelling musical world of fractured and interlocking components. Having left a vivid impression with a string of releases on The Death of Rave & Warp sub-label Arcola, his debut album ‘ATAXIA’ for Planet Mu in 2019 established him as both a disruptive and essential new voice in British underground club music. His latest album ‘File Under UK Metaplasm’ takes inspiration from his residency at the Nyege Nyege collective’s Boutique Studio in Kampala in 2018. Incorporating the high-def bass weight of his home town Sheffield with the enigmatic energy of Tanzanian Singeli and Footwork. Using the programming language Max/MSP he develops bespoke software to explore extended rhythmic techniques and algorithmic processes, building devices that enable spontaneous pattern modulation within various collaborations, workshops, live performances and installations.

The workshop is organised by BEK in cooperation with Ekko. It is part of New Perspectives for Action, a project by Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by The European Union.
