Bela Emerson & Hervé Perez duo
Cello, alto saxophone, laptop, electronics.
Bela and Hervé met at Buddhafield Festival in the summer of 2019. After a very brief musical encounter in the middle of a field amidst sun and wind, the duo realised that they had to play again, and involve their passion for improvisation with acoustic instruments and electronics.
Both experienced improvisers have performed for many years across the UK and Europe. As a duo, they are able to merge fluidly gestural, textural and melodic phrases, with great ease and near telepathic communication
Dystopian pop, disorientating noises, corporate video testimonials
Originally from Dublin, Meljoann produces experimental electronic pop. In her latest single ‘Assfuck the Boss’, she explores the “stockholm syndrome of the employed”. Her sound has been described as “like a long-lost soul-pop album from the mid-1990s as remixed by Aphex Twin” (Eamon de Paor, Metro Herald)
Field recordings and miscellaneous electronics
Adam Wimbush’s solo project Ascsoms is an evolving sound world formed from a semi-generative system of analogue and lo-fi equipment, tape players, loopers, field recordings, miscellaneous electronics and a rotating cast of effects pedals. His recent experiments explore layering and signal routing. These morphing environments, often dense and full of texture, feed into further productions – creating an ongoing experiment in sonic reproduction and reprocessing.
He is a keen collaborator, a member of Thee Electric Spotchworms Tape Orchestra and half of sound effects duo Electronic Sound Pictures Visit https://ascsoms.bandcamp.com and https://soundcloud.com/ascsoms for more info and follow at @ascsoms on instagram and facebook
