John Butcher leads an almost scientific survey of the sonic possibilities of the saxophone in a given environment whether performing improvisation or compositions. He has performed with Christian Marclay, Toshimaru Nakamura, Derek Bailey, Lol Coxhill, Steve Beresford…
John Edwards began on the double bass in the late 1980s. In 1990 he came in contact with musicians such as Phil Minton, Evan Parker, Louis Moholo and Eddie Prevost. He is now an essential member of the London music scene and a staple of european festivals
Christine, Mathias & Olivier create a personal language on how to make electronic music on an acoustic instrument. Far away from narrative or dramatic music, they use extended techniques to deal with the relation between listening and the concept of perception, time and space.
They are touring the UK and this will be their only performance in London.
Angharad Davies is an active performer in contemporary, improvisation and experimental music both as a soloist and within ensembles. Since making London her base in 2002 she has developed a specific approach to the violin, extending the sound possibilities of the instrument by attaching and applying objects to the strings or by sounding unexpected parts of the instrument’s body.
Lina Lapelyte lives & works in London &Vilnius. Lina works as a sound artist and composer, performs live using violin and electronics. Her work encompasses sound installations, concert works, scores for dance, theater and film. One of her field of interests is collecting information and changing its meaning by putting it into a different context. She is a composer and performer in the laptop quartet 20,21- the ensemble devoted to the performances of graphical notation scores. She produces experimental radio programs for the ResonanceFM radio station. Her music was used in films made by Anja Kirchner, Bruse la Bruse. She collaborated with artists Douglas Benford, Arturas Bumsteinas, Eddie Prevost, Anton Lukoszevietze, Enrico Glerean, MAndelbrot.
