HACO is a vocalist, sound artist and founding member of After Dinner and Hoahio. She will be bringing new songs from her new album 'Qoosui'. Haco uses voice and self-programmed electronics as an ‘organic method’ in her performance, accompanied by video images shot and edited with Mariko Tajiri. “Listening to Qoosui feels like stepping into a dream or drowning in clouds of perfume.”––The Wire
TARNOVSKI's performances commonly include a mixture of glitch electronica, musique concrète, drones, computer deconstruction, quirky sonorities and field recordings. He is a musician, composer and producer, hailed as a key figure in Czech experimental-electro music and one of the founding members of experimental pop band Miou Miou and post-everything quartet Gurun Gurun. He also runs Jipangu, a small label focused on experimental music and sound art. Tarnovski is supported by the Czech Centre, London.
KAMURA will be joining our guests — our resident artiste at Club Integral Midlands Branch, Japanese agit-femme vocalist and electricist. Former member of Frank Chickens and Mizutama Shobodan (Polka Dot Fire Brigade) the first Japanese feminist punk band. Voice-modulated improvisation and eco-surrealist chansons are weaved into the bizarre world of the experimental. “Kamura’s various voices combine to create an indeterminate libretto in which bird song, ocean waves and white noise stand tall. …Synthesised melodies shift the atmosphere from B movie horror, past new age ambient and on to playful children’s song. ..”
PSYCHOYOGI are Chris Ramsing — guitar & vocals, Chris Sansom — bass & vocals, Ravi Low-Beer — drums. Challenging though accessible, being influenced by musicians and composers such as Frank Zappa, King Crimson, XTC, Captain Beefheart, Gong, The Beatles, Gentle Giant, Bach, Bartok and Stravinsky and most things left of centre. Their music is unique and does not adhere to a single musical style. Lyrics that challenge current social values and music that excites and stimulates. Jazz, progressive rock and classical influence. Many musical munchies…
