Manipulated vocals / electronics / drone / found sounds
Johanna blends found sounds, drones, DIY noise devices, and harmonised vocals to create melodic, dreamy yet haunting soundscapes. She is one half of motorik pop band Fröst and is interested in exploring the gap between experimental noise and pop. In her solo work, she attempts to bring elements of melodic and pop structures to experimental sounds and textures.
Homemade electronics & horror timbres with melody
Cutlasses is the solo project of Scott Pitkethly. Combining field recordings and found sounds with heavily manipulated guitar and synths, Cutlasses takes its inspiration from the textures and timbres of sound art and horror film soundtracks, whilst also drawing from the melodic sensibilities of pop music. As well as making music, Scott is also an avid maker of DIY electronic instruments and effects, some of which will make it into the live show.
I’m Dr Buoyant and Ron Caines
Return of the sax and loop improv duo
I’m Dr Buoyant and Ron Caines return for a rare outing of their unique combination of live-sampled loops and improvised sax, ranging from the lyrical to the downright gnarly. I’m Dr Buoyant is a founder member of the Spirit of Gravity collective, while Ron Caines, of 70’s prog fame with East of Eden, appears in regular improv duos with the likes of Andy Pyne and Alice Eldridge, and is a member of the Westhill Blast Quartet. I’m Dr Buoyant recently released a full-length album of electronic manipulations of Ron’s saxophone recordings on the Spirit of Gravity BandCamp label, “I’m Dr Buoyant plays Ron Caines”.
