Some Became Hollow Tubes
A new project combining the talents of two of the finest producers of noise out there. Eric Quach (THISQUIETARMY, etc)'s looping layers of instrumentation give their music an ominous air but with the drumming of GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR and EXHAUST's Aidan Girt sitting underneath it, their music has a familiarity that's hard to shake even when hearing it for the first time. Industrial landscapes flicker before your mind's eye and crumble again, and tension stretches time to the point where you're not quite sure how long you've been listening.
Stereocilia is Bristol based guitarist and composer, John Scott. John uses his guitar, analogue synths and live looping techniques to create dense, rich layers of sound.
Over the past 10 years John has performed all over the UK and Europe with various projects. in the past he has shared a stage with acts including: Gnod, Nadja, Daniel Lanois, Ex-Easter Island Head, White Hills, Acid Mothers Temple, Ben Frost, Josef Van Wissem, Mick Turner (The Dirty Three), Machinefabriek, Noveller, and performed in three of Rhys Chatham’s guitar Orchestras. He has also presented work for live radio broadcasts, and regularly composes for Short Film.
Spring of 2019 will see the release of Stereocilia's 4th album, and second for Brighton label, Drone Rock Records.
Dead Space Chamber Music
Dead Space Chamber Music are a dark ambient / ritual / Gothic / ethereal / neoclassical trio of cello, guitar and voice, based in Bristol. Existing where early music meets early industrial, the focused intensity and intimacy of chamber music is combined with an experimental / ritual aesthetic, to create an emotive, transportive and atmospheric live experience. As well as co-curating the Dark Alchemy event series in Bristol with Tommy Creep (occult electronics / modular synth), DSCM have supported touring artists in Bristol such as Bonnacons of Doom, Rose McDowall, Jungfrau, Cold In Berlin, and noise pioneer Horacio Pollard.
