Born in 1981 from industrial music behemoth Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV is fronted by Throbbing Gristle’s founder: anti-hero, artist, and Pandrogyne, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Psychic TV is particularly known for its intense and visceral live performances and for a creative lineage that includes cultural luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Derek Jarman, and Timothy Leary, among others. Always experimenting and looking to break new ground, the band, led by P-Orridge and drummer / co-producer Edley ODowd, is currently steeped in a state of deep psychedelia with compelling video art to match. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Psychic TV will perform a special live soundtrack to Derek Jarman’s “In The Shadow of The Sun” and more.Warning: Program will contain graphic content.

About Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

For nearly half a century Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (b. Britain, 1950) has been questioning the meaning and substance of identity through artistic endeavors, willful reincarnation, and physical shapeshifting. Embracing the body as not simply the vessel but the site of the avant-garde impulse, Breyer P-Orridge has reinvented and reintroduced h/erself again and again ““ as Fluxus pioneer, groundbreaking performance artist, inventor of industrial music, “wrecker of civilization,” essayist and theoretician, and, most recently, with her late wife Lady Jaye as pandrogyne. Breyer P-Orridge’s work has been the subject of numerous international exhibitions, including recently “S/he is Her/e” at the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh (2013), and “Life Is A Cheap Suitcase” at Summerhall, Edinburgh (2014).
