Stephan Barrett‘s work often revolves around materials gleaned on walks conducted in peri-urban landscapes, the sonic resonance of objects and the aquatic imaginary.
As an improviser he performs with Helen Frosi under the moniker Postcards from the Volcano, with Adam Kinsey as Littoral Transmissions and with Dan Strange as Georges Kaplan Presents… as well as part of various other groupings, larger ensembles including the London Improvisers’ Orchestra and Apocalypse Jazz Unit and the eminent SEA MANTIS (with Ed Shipsey, Adam Kinsey & Andrew Ciccone).
He currently co-produces radio shows as part of Littoral Transmissions for Resonance Extra and Threads Radio. He has released the EP ‘Four Card Trick’ with Georges Kaplan Presents… and his solo album ‘sea . forest . wind’ is available on Visible Near Midnight records.
Emmanuelle Waeckerlé is a London based multidisciplinary artist, curator, performer and free improviser working with the materiality and musicality of language. Her practice emerges between image text and performance, between poetic scores and occasions for their activation (installations, performances, workshops). Her scores and music are distributed by Edition Wandelweiser Records. She is a Reader at UCA Farnham, director of bookRoom research and publishing platform and the host of the house concert series Cosy Nook since 2016.
Petri Huurinainen is a Finnish artist and musician currently living in London whose practice includes field recordings, extended use of live electronics, improvisation, live soundtracks, film music, composing and music production. His limited edition 12″ vinyl record ‘Exile Nothing’ came out in 2016 and is available from Rough Trade.
Edward Shipsey is an improvising musician and maker of more planned music. He makes sounds with his mouth and other things. Recently he has been trying to use movement, video, words at the same time as making sound in order to?
