Martin Hackett is a member of Oxford Improvisers and the Muzzix collective in Lille, France. He has been playing improvised music of one sort or another for as long as he can remember, for the past thirty years largely devoted to an obsessive exploration of the Korg MS10 synthesiser.
Sue Lynch currently runs ‘The Horse Improvised Music Club’ with Adam Bohman, Hutch Demouilpied and Adrian Northover. She has performed with Adam Bohman, Eddie Prévost, Anna Homler, Steve Noble, Crystabel Riley, Caroline Kraabel, Sharon Gal and John Edwards. She performed as part of Tarek Atoui’s ‘Reverse Collection’ at The Tate Modern. In 2016 she formed ‘Paradise Yard’ – an electro acoustic ensemble, performing at Iklectik, Cafe Oto and The ICA. In 2018, she performed at 3 Klange Tag Festival, Switzerland with Hildegard Kleeb, at Womad BBC Stage, and Guess Who Festival-Utrecht, with The Scorpios (a psychedelic Sudanese band), and solo saxophone at Le Pied Nu Festival, France.
Douglas Benford, composer and sound artist, has been involved in various audio genres and monikers 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 and activity in the 90s and 2000s, he currently plays acoustic sources (eg harmonium, toys, objects) with the London Improvisers Orchestra and Confront Recordings / Mark Wastell’s The Seen collective. His collaborators include Blanca Regina, poet Tamar Yoseloff, Angharad Davies, sculptor Rob Olins, Matt Atkins, Lina Lapelyte, Marjolaine Charbin, Steve Beresford, Adam Bohman, Clive Bell, John Edwards, Jennifer Allum, Alan Wilkinson, Emily Shapiro and Sue Lynch.
