Green Four Forest.. Oak Stump.. Tree Creature.. Witch Fruit.. These are a few of the ingredients in CHAINES’ object based, tactile card game. Playing without looking– intuition and circumstance, un-augmenting reality across place and time. A space for thought and interaction– “..all things interconnect.. [and manifest] as.. communication”.
CHAINES (Cee Haines) is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and artist based in Manchester, UK, who writes surreal and fantastical electronica and electro-acoustic music. Their album The King (Slip) was received with enthusiastic critical praise (FACT, Boomkat, The Wire). Their live set incorporates semi-improvised electro-acoustic performance, which The Guardian has called ‘a mesmeric collage of ecclesiastical beauty and creeping dread’.
