Chris Hill is a performer, improviser and sound artist who regularly attends the John Russell and Eddie Prevost’s Workshops and currently plays with the London Improvisers Orchestra as well as Anthony Donovan’s Murmurists Project. Under the name DiscountGnostic he explores the psychic boundaries between childhood, memory and remembering and exploits improvisation to investigate occulted mental states. Two of his pieces were selected for Radiophrenia in 2019, and later that year one was aired on Sonic Darts for Resonance FM. Other material has appeared on the compilations such as Bingeing/Purging (Mouth in Foot Records), Musique Concrète & études pour magnétique tape (Institute for Alien Research) and Tribute to Tardigrades no.23 (Fraction Studios).
