Peter Furniss is based in London and has performed internationally for 30 years across and between a broad range of genres, including orchestral and chamber music, contemporary, experimental and electronic musics, free improvisation and improvised theatre projects.
His practice is currently focused on electro-instrumental improvisation and collaboration, with an emphasis on liveness(es), embodied and material agencies, and shifting notions of the ‘instrument’.
Recent recordings include Bitter Together and Will of the People (Fabrikant Records) with guitarist Haftor Medbøe, and the triptych Alison – Heated – Forest (sumtone) with Scottish collective Edimpro. Forthcoming releases include solos, a collaboration with Dave Murray-Rust (electronics), and an album celebrating 10 years of working with Martin Parker’s immersive, interactive software environment gruntCount.
Noah Berrie is a London-based composer, sound artist, performer, and a classically-trained violinist. His work explores perceptual and spatial subtleties of sound, spanning improvisatory performance, multichannel audio, video, installation, instrument-building, and composition. He is currently in residence at Alexander Lee McQueen’s Sarabande Foundation.
KUBOV (Emma Lloyd & Jess Aslan) is a duo of violin and electronics. Incorporating minimalist textures and harrowing dissonance and distortion, their music ranges from the esoterically tingly to downright disturbing. Their eclectic sonorities are a result of the hybridisation of electronics and acoustic instrument, with which they explore and combine spaces and places, warping perspective and effecting a sonic escapism.
KUBOV originated as a collaborative endeavour between composer and performer, and has developed over the years through a compulsion to break away from the traditional boundaries of the discrete roles and to research the potential of this instrumental and creative composite through performance. Jess Aslan is an associate lecturer for Music composition and Technology.
