Read: Drowned In Sound interviews Saul Williams ahead of his LGW performance

Tue Oct 9th

Ahead of his one-off, improvised, and non-rehearsed performance with King Britt at Le Guess Who?, Drowned in Sound interviewed musician, poet, actor and screenwriter Saul Williams about what we can expect on 10 November, as well as his Kickstarter musical film project ‘Neptune Frost’ and his love for Broadway musicals. You can read the full interview here.

Williams and Britt first met at the Cannes release party for Williams’ debut film ‘Slam’ in 1998. Their collaborative LGW performance is called ‘Unanimous Goldmine’, a phrase Williams pulled out of the graphic novel he will publish in 2019, that refers to the greeting the characters use in the sci-fi magical-realism story.

“It’s gonna be electronics, and it’s going to be words. The improvisatory side of things of what I do is something I’ve always experimented with. This is essentially going to be an exploration of sound and words. I have purposefully not discussed it with King, because it was my idea to be – whatever we do, we do it on that night.” - Saul Williams on his collaboration with King Britt

Saul Williams & King Britt will present ‘Unanimous Goldmine’ at Le Guess Who? 2018. Their performance is curated by Moor Mother. This curated program also features a.o. Art Ensemble of Chicago, GAIKA, Irreversible Entanglements feat. Pat Thomas, FAKA, RP Boo, Nicole Mitchell, Maria Chavez, Pan Daijing, and many more.
