Actress, real name Darren Jordan Cunningham and known to friends as DAZ, returns with a new album, now on Ninja Tune and a new music system called “AZD” (pronounced “Azid”), a chrome aspect journey into a parallel world. Actress is touring the U.S. in August and Thrillcall is giving away a pair of tickets for shows in Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, and New York.
As if the record itself isn’t enough, Cunningham is currently preparing a new live show. Presented as AZD, Cunningham says it “will be a test frame for linking circuits using various forms of language — Midi globalized language, Lyrical language, Tikal Graffiti code and various other Synthesiser language — to create one intelligent musical instrument called AZD, if successful it will produce the first translucent, non-soluble communication sound pill synergized through impressionistic interpretations of technological equipment. This is the music vitamin of the Metropolis.”
