Bredbeddle is Rebecca Lee: a musician, composer and artist based at Primary, Nottingham, working across performance, installation, scores and broadcasts. Her work explores processes of making and forms of listening, drawing from experimental, early, electronic, chamber and improvised musics. Rebecca has contributed several times to our field recording night A Field in Stirchley. For this set she will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Song of the Humpback Whale by incorporating that and other sound effects recordings into her set.
Lewis Burn is a sound artist whose practice is focused on live performance under the name Steckdose. Each show is designed specifically for the event, considering the participants, audience and venue; and is improvised around a shifting combination of digital/analogue loops, synthesizers, guitars, and bespoke instruments.
‘Velodrome’ is a musical project by Katherine Christie Evans, a queer soprano, guitarist and composer.
An eclectic range of influences includes classical and early music, new-wave, electronica, and alternative rock. There is a penchant for interesting costume.
7balcony is a music ensemble producing semi-autonomous music using analogue and electronic instrumentation that synthesis human interaction and computer controlled outcomes.
The ensemble was initiated by local composers Zach Dawson and Richard Stenton.
Sam Andreae, creator of the Birmingham Foley Theatre, exhibited later in the festival at Stirchley Reading Room, is featured performing three improvised sets with other musicians Kate Armitage, Davbe Birchall, Hannah Marshall, Otto Willberg.
