Philip Julian (London) has been an active part of the experimental music
underground since the late 1990's recording various works under the name
Cheapmachines which operates at the interface between noise electronics,
generative software, field recordings, tape music and long-form drones.

Contact microphones, amplified metal objects, domestic radio receivers,
instrument effects pedals, environmental/found sounds, tape loops, damaged
electrical devices, analogue synthesizers, turntables & "prepared" vinyl,

Polyphasic are a two-piece and produce their live set with reel-to reel
machines, weird old synths, scanners, mixers, ect. Its somewhat composed
but elements of improvisation are unavoidable

Caustic Castle is Kenneth Yates, also of the duo's Harm Stryker (w/
Constant Mauk) & Insects With Tits (w/ Chefkirk). Kenneth Yates utilizes
the no-input mixing technique coupled with live processing using various
filters and pedals. With his music usually comes an abstract visual
fascination with architecture and is psyhogeographical effects on the
human psyche. Inspired by past revolutionary art and social movements like
DaDa & the Situationiste Internationale, he struggles to find a parallel
between art, sound & social unrest, or just perhaps provide a sort of
soundtrack to it all.

Performs and records solo, modifying a single turntable with minimal
preparations to create a cascading wall of noise and subtle, creaking
musique concrete.

Pinko Communoids is an improvisational trio based in Charlottesville, VA. We make abstract and restrained noises using circuit-bent and stock electronic gizmos, guitars, percussion, microphones, paperclips, screws, ping pong balls, amps & more.
