Chase Coley & Pascal Colman
Chase Coley & Pascal Colman have been performing as a free improvising duo since 2014.
They have performed extensively around London and other parts of the UK to a lesser extent. These include performances at east London’s Dronica series, Iklektic and 2017’s Supernormal festival. They are currently in the process of making their first record.
Their practice has seen develop a unique mode of spatially responsive free improvised performance which. comprised of textural guitar, different devices used for creating interference and an array of unique acoustic instruments fashioned by instrument builder Chase Coley inspires a listening which is unprovisional, pure and immediate.
Empowered electronics, kinetic pulse, drifting texture, undulating drone, amber cloud, alternating current, corrosive rain, dots behind the eyes, light becomes sound, rebuilt from the ground up with whatever comes to hand.
HARMERGEDDON is Nathan Greywater and Polyphoniefae, Dungeness based a/v performance art duo formed in South London in the autumn of 2010.
Their live show blends sound and light in a feedback loop using photophonics (sound carried on light beams), electro magnetic fields and consumer electronic junk with a basis in improvisation and psychedelia. The result verges on sensory overload.
Merlin Nova is sound, song and movement. Ecstatic energy blast. Clear-cut. Quick fix. Immediate. Set scene sound. Landscape, temperature and feeling. Here with you, together.
Her live set evolved out of a weekly radio show broadcasted on Subcity Radio that she hosted and made soundscapes for. Her debut EP ‘Protect Your Flame’ was released on Blank Editions in March 2018. Recently her practice evolved into working closely with movement and dance practitioners for whom she improvises music.
