The first in a series of experimental music and sonic art nights brought an extraordinary line up of maverick music-makers. Charting new territories, three composers developed unique soundworlds through sampling, improvisation and live performance.
Matthew Olden created evolving and interacting textures through his ground-breaking jungulator audio-visual software, producing a truly immersive quadraphonic electronic soundscape. As a member of I Am The Mighty Jungulator, he has re-imagined Shostakovich in octophonic sound with The Philharmonia Orchestra, rocked the Science Museum, Tate Gallery and ICA. He is a regular Big Chill contributor and winner of Diesel-U-Music leftfield electronic award 2004.
Thomas Gardner, an electro-acoustic composer, improviser and cellist, combined live performance with interactive electronics. In Lipsync electronic responses were based on the vocalisations of the cellist. A founder member of the Ecosonic performing group he has worked with Turner prize winning artist Martin Creed.
Andy Keep explored the ‘intrinsic voice’ of electronic feedback. His solo live improvisations create a dynamic and compelling harnessing of sound from pin-drop fragility to cascades of complex noise. A multi instrumentalist and producer, he performed with David Byrne on Later…with Jools Holland.
