Klavikon (Leon Michener)
‘KLAVIKON reimagines ‘electronic’ music without the use of conventional processes – no loops, no laptops, no sequencers. Instead, pianist Leon Michener employs a unique system of amplified prepared piano. Augmenting the 88 keys with his own inventions and found objects – a custom made pick up, a robot dog- he delivers cascading batteries of percussion, sub-basses and abstract soundscapes. This amalgam of virtuosic technique and real-time analogue processing is at once connected with Classical traditions of Stockhausen and Cage and the experimental dancefloor idiom of Amon Tobin and Bochum Welt. The result is a fertile sonic territory, sincere in its eccentricity, restlessly inventive, that resists easy categorisation.’

Graham Massey’s Toolshed
‘Toolshed was originally a project from 10 years ago and was revived for Festival Number 6 and Liverpool Pcychadelic Festival 2015.’
‘Graham was a member of experimental jazz rock group Biting Tongues once signed to Factory Records. By 1988 he was a founding member of the British band, 808 State, formed in Manchester, England. Originally a hip-hop group called Hit Squad Manchester, 808 State shifted to an acid house sound, recording their debut album, Newbuild in 1988 under the new name 808 State.’
BugBrand is the umbrella for works by Tom Bugs. He has a small setup working out of Bristol, England. His website presents various electronic audio devices along with performances.
