Adrena Adrena is a collaboration between visual artist Daisy Dickinson and drummer E-Da Kazuhisa (ex-Boredoms, Seefeel). The duo cut a raw blend of drums, noise and organic visual work, featuring in their performances an eight foot white sphere that hangs above Kazuhisa’s drum kit and which Dickinson maps videos on to. As a duo, their debut was at the International Festival of Projections in 2016 and have since performed at The Institute of Contemporary Arts London, CERN Geneva, End of The Road Festival, Supernormal Festival, Zorofest in Leipzig and other shows and festivals across the UK, Europe and Japan, with Acid Mothers Temple and members of Can, Faust, Wire and Bo Ningen. The pair completed a short film in 2016. ‘Man on the Hill’, which features E-da playing drums on fire in the mountains. The film was nominated for The BFI London Film Festival, Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival, The London Experimental Film Festival, Vienna Independent Film Festival and the London Short Film Festival.

The project features spoken word performances from Taylor Burch inspired by avant-garde icon Jean Cocteau’s performance in Jean Cocteau s’adresse… à l’an 2000 and production from Kerridge, and will be released on Regis’ Downwards imprint.
The duo will also launch an audiovisual show to accompany the project in collaboration with London-based filmmaker Daisy Dickinson which is described by Downwards as “a visual, speech and sound based piece”. The show “will utilise large pieces of semi-transparent fabric, running floor to ceiling in height and suspended at different depths”, explains the label, “covering the stage and immersing Samuel Kerridge in audio reactive live-mixed visuals.”
