Maesh / Experimental duo Roy Dodds (floor percussion and electronics) and Jo Hutton, (chalumeau, saxophone and electronics) perform improvisations that transform urban sounds into ethereal, disharmonious soundscapes. Works include the CD Music to Watch Cranes By (as featured on Channel 4 documentary McQueen and I) and recently released Yes…And? with guests Chris Weaver, Fari Bradley, Knut Auferman and Simon Edwards.
Atom Eye / The solo project of multi-instrumentalist Elsie Martins; Atom Eye is one woman on a mission to create beautiful, vast and mysterious soundscapes…a playful and panoramic exploration of tape processing. Showcasing experiments with magnetic tape manipulations; reel to reel loops, tape echoes, field recordings, ambient drones, guitars & other noise making machines, Atom Eye’s releases include collaborations with Pete Lockett & Simon Fisher-Turner. Full length album & companion book The Otolith Sessions is available now Forwind records.
Langham Research Centre / Langham Research Centre work with vintage equipment to compose new music using an instrumentarium of reel-to-reel tape and other now obsolete devices. They perform 20th century classic electronic repertoire by John Cage, Alvin Lucier and others on historic instruments. Their current release is John Cage: Early Electronic & Tape Music, available now on Sub Rosa.
