Adam Bohman has been operating on the outer fringes of underground music for decades. Working with home-built instruments, found objects, tape cut-ups, collages, ink drawings and graphic scores. Favouring acoustic sounds over electronics, he explores the minute tendrils of sounds coaxed from any number of non-musical instruments and objects. He is a member of British experimental groups, Morphogenesis, The Bohman Brothers, Secluded Bronte, and The London Improvisers Orchestra. Adam’s music is unique and experimental, incorporating Fluxus japery, musique concrete, sound poetry and free improvisation.
Adrian Northover is based in London, and plays alto and soprano saxophone. He can currently be heard playing on the London club scene with a wide range of musicians, as well as doing solo saxophone performances. He has made recordings with B Shops for the Poor, The Remote Viewers, Sonicphonics (with Billy Bang), The London Improvisers Orchestra, Ensemble Trip-Tik, Anna Homler, Dave Tucker, John Edwards, The Custodians, and various duo CD’s with Adam Bohman, Tasos Stamou, Daniel Thompson and many others.
