Gruff Rhys will be joined by North Wales surf band Y Niwl for a special intimate gig at Chapter Arts, Cardiff, December 16th to coincide with Phil Collins’ contribution to Artes Mundi 5. They will recreate the soundtrack for the performance and installation This Unfortunate Thing Between Us (TUTBU TV) in which they starred as the in-house band.
This Unfortunate Thing Between Us is currently on show as the new Lightbox Commission and in two caravans on the Chapter forecourt. First performed in 2011 and broadcast live on German digital television, TUTBU TV is an alternative home shopping channel selling real life experiences in place of mass-produced commodities. It includes pitches, demonstrations and live phone-ins to provide a tantalising glimpse into what could be the future of consumer television.
TUTBU – This Unfortunate Thing Between Us.
2 episodes of Phil Collins’ Utopian TV shopping channel TUTBU, recorded last year in Berlin in front of a live studio audience, will be transmitted into televisions placed in 2 special caravans in front of the Chapter arts centre, Cardiff, from today until next January as part of the Artes Mundi exhibition.
It features a continuous 60 minute soundtrack performed by Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl.
