Georgina Brett
Georgina has a new double album to present and has released 2 albums previously on Bandcamp, “Emotional Sense” a collection of the first vocal works… and “Electronic Works” a retrospective album releasing work back to 1994. She has writings and plans for 2 further albums, releasing a remixes album, developing music for a child’s toy, writing music for an installation piece and running “Tuesdays Post” a monthly night of experimental music in W10 London.

Jem Finer
Jem Finer is an artist, composer and musician with a background in mathematics and computer science, dating back to the ICL 1900 mainframe computers of the early 1970s. An enduring fascination with deep time and space, self-organising systems and long-durational processes has been the impetus behind much of his work including his Artangel commission, Longplayer, a thousand-year-long musical composition playing since the last moments of 1999, Cosmolog, a two-year-long artists residency in the astrophysics department of Oxford University and the 2005 PRSF New Music Award winner, Score For
a Hole In the Ground, a permanent, self-sustaining musical installation in a forest in Kent, which relies only on gravity and the elements to be audible. Recent work focuses on these interests and includes Kung Fu Pinball, a pinball machine modified to auto-compose
music, Slowplayer, a 3 r.p.m. sound system and Spiegelei, a 360-degree spherical camera obscura. Supercomputer, a current work in Cambridge, finds Finer’s “post-digital” thinking having come full circle in the form of a sculptural machine of a computational process, indebted as much to Jean Tinguely’s Métamatics as to John Conway’s Game of Life.

James Malone
James Malone is an improvising acoustic guitarist. He has performed around the UK with musicians such as Eddie Prevost, Ute Kanngeiser, Steve Beresford, and Adam Bohman. Regular projects include duos with Joe Wright and Daniel Kordik.

Douglas Benford
Douglas Benford, composer and sound artist, has been involved in various audio genres since the late 1980s, performing at institutions in the UK (Bristol’s Arnolfini, London’s Science Museum, Tate Modern, The Roundhouse, ICA and Glasgow’s CCA), festivals worldwide (Mutek, Synch, Transmediale) and has had installation work in numerous UK galleries (London, Swansea, Stroud and Essex). After numerous electronica releases in his ‘si-cut.db’ guise, in the past few years he has focused on acoustic improvisation and installations, using field recordings, classical instruments, vocals and children’s toys.
His regular collaborators include Blanca Regina, poet Tamar Yoseloff, Angharad Davies, Lina Lapelyte, Clive Bell, Steve Beresford, Sue Lynch, sculptor Rob Olins, as well as – in the past – pop group Saint Etienne, Momus, Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), Scanner, Stephan Mathieu and DJ Andrew Weatherall. He is also co-curator with Iris Garrelfs since 1996, of Sprawl audio events in London.
