The Programme

In this edition we feature sets from

Cos Chapman

“I play music and make odd sounds using electronics, found objects and guitar. I studied composition using computers as a post graduate in the early 90’s. After completing that I realised that performing live music – improvising with as little pre-planned and “off the shelf” as possible – was more interesting for me and potentially more exciting for an audience. I’ve made many solo appearances over the years performing improvised electroacoustics as well as creating live sound-design for dance, installation, theatre and film.”

Jo-anne Cox

Jo-anne Cox is a creative contemporary cellist. As well as performing solo, she collaborates with other artists and musicians, playing with bands, ensembles and other performers. She is a composer of seriously sensuous work who loves cross-artform collaboration and audience interactive performance.

Jo-anne has collaborated with Ivan Riches, Penny Pepper, Oliver Cross, Drake Music, Fluid Motion Theatre Company, Together2012 and more. She is also a regular contributor to Disability Arts Online.

DHANGSHA is the electronic project of Aniruddha Das. His remit is to explore minimalism, repetition and fragmentation in sound. The name “Dhangsha” is from Bengali for ‘destruction,’ relating not only to the use of a RAT distortion pedal to give the illusion of damaged speakers, but a de-construction of ideas that do not have the best interests of people or communities at heart.

Robin the Fog

Founder member and chief strategist of Howlround, the tape-loop ‘quintet’ (myself and four reel to reel machines) that creates performances and recordings from manipulating naturally occurring sounds on vintage magnetic tape, with all additional effects and artificial reverb strictly forbidden. Our records have been compared to William Basinski (who I toured with in 2015), Burial and Selected Ambient Works-era Aphex Twin. We’ve been in session for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, effused as to the power of tape loops on 6Music’s The Freakier Zone, been profiled in The Wire, Electronic Sound and FACTmag.

Visit his website to find out more about him and his body of work.
