An evening of deconstructed folk song, electroacoustic experiments and outer-realm exploration featuring....

Todmorden/Huddersfield wunderkinder of drone/noise/folk dreamscapes Sophie Cooper (also of Tor Invocation Band + Leopard Leg + heaps more) and Julian Bradley (also of Vibracathedral Orchestra) get together to forge a ghostly tapestry of earthen whirring, phantasmal resonances, sheets of textured skree and touching, hazy vocals, which stir the waters of the soul and evoke strange landscapes in the mind.

Kelly Jayne Jones beckons a tussle with uncertainty, inviting exposure and vulnerability in performance, chasing experiences that open our chasms within, without restraint. Searching for humble principles of growth; physis; sound, connecting with others in the same space/moment, customary experimental play, with threads and beads of improvisation, interactivity. She makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute. She has collaborations with Sam Weaver (Cusp Editions), Andie Brown and Hannah Ellul from Psykick Dancehall (White Death). She has a solo cassette release on the label Winebox Press in an edition of 63, hand made wooden boxes. KJJ has had residencies at Arnolfini in Bristol UK and Kunstalle Bergen, Norway. Commissioned works for Haris Epaminonda at dOCUMENTA13, Tate Modern, ICA London, Schirn Frankfurt, Point Centre Nicosia. She has worked on various projects, solo and part wild horses mane on both sides, at CCA Glasgow, Trieze Gallery Paris, Borealis Festival & Kunsthalle Bergen Norway, Tectonics contemporary music festival Reykjavik, Hangar Bicocca gallery, Milan and for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in Nov 2016.

King Snif is the duo of Aoife Nessa Francis and Cian Nugent. Interweaving guitars, rumbling beats and time-warping drones meld into righteous grooves. Reminiscent of Cluster at their most melodic... probably jamming to Marquee Moon.

Rachel Ní Chuinn works with sound, movement, text and electronics. She produces sound works for radio, live performance and installation. Her live performances are largely improvised; combining acoustic and electronic elements heavily influenced by Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening and a curiosity about sound in the built environment.
