In this edition we feature sets from
ROVELLASCA is the moniker of Craig Stewart Johnson. He is a visual and audio artist and researcher based in Gateshead. His work holds a fascination with the detail and nuance of the every day, honing in on the abstract textures found within. Musically, we are presented with lo-fi drones utilising tapes, synths and guitar pedals. Craig is also a member of Liminal Haze and runs the record label Invisible City Records. Visit his website to find out more information.
I’m enjoying building my own acoustic instruments and sound making circuits. The unpredictability of these appeals to me. I have to be ready to adapt and change what I do according to how they interact. For solo performances I bring a selection of devices, effect pedals, microphones and so on. Not all get used and I decide the way these are set up as I go along.I rarely play the same thing for long, seeking to create a flow or story and make sure there’s a structure to the performance overall. Visit Cos’ website for more information about him and his work
Si Paton is a good kid really, just a little bit misunderstood. He was discouraged by music; probably when he was 10 and discovered how to play scratch tones on the violin which everyone hated. However, he kept at it due to being both delusional and stubborn. Choosing bass guitar as his weapon of choice and taking the cathartic visceral attitude of rock music, the spontaneous earnestness of free jazz, and the curiosity of the avant-garde, he has spent the past 16 years performing and writing experimental music, taking revenge in the process on school bullies and people that told him to write something “nice and pleasant – please Simon! Just one song! You’re actually quite good when you play properly!!” He collaborates with oddballs, misfits and dreamers, making those who “get it” feel less isolated, whilst punishing those who don’t. Listen to Si’s music
Henry Prince is an experimental bass player based in London. His improvisations use objects and pedals with the fretless bass to generate abstract textural pieces inspired by modernist works of psychological literature. He has released solo recordings and works with a range of improv musicians with a view to releasing his debut album in 2024. Follow Henry on Instagram
