6.30pm, tickets £6 on the door.
A creative cross-disciplinary group (Simeon Portway, Jamie Mills, Matt Davis) involved in improvising music and sound using acoustic instruments and self-made electronic devices.
Bristol-based musician interested in the boundary between abstraction and crude materiality in electronic and computer music. Currently performing with computer, prepared speaker and prepared stylus.
Records solo as Skjølbrot (http://www.skjolbrot.org/), plays in a duo with Stephen Cornford, and in the group Aigon DAAC with Dominic Lash and Stuart Chalmers. In the recent past he has written music for theatre and installation, played guitar in the studiously idiotic rock band Hunting Lodge and organised gigs, screenings and workshops, both for Bristol’s Arnolfini gallery and as part of Bang the Bore.
A sound recordist, drummer and process performer based in Bristol. His solo performances involve feedback and resonance. As a field recordist he deletes, displaces and distorts material, preferring failed representation, aberrant modelling and perturbed or transient environments. As a percussionist he plays traps and waste disposal sink. He sometimes enjoys the flexibility of improvisation and open composition.
He used to play drums for Hunting Lodge and Defibrillators. Current projects include a duo with Dominic Lash and the Every Contact Leaves a Trace CDr label. He co-founded the Bang the Bore collective with Clive Henry in 2009.
