Description

COoS - Brighton's festival of international experimental music and art. It's a big saturday night of exploratory sonic wonders! Doors 5.30 - First act 6pm sharp!

Bill Nace & Twig Harper
Twig Harper and Bill Nace have been driving forces in the American underground music scene for over a decade. For COoS they’re performing as a duo, bringing what’s been described as ‘a writhing, oozing, viscous specimen of electronic free improvisation’ to the UK for the first time.

Twig Harper is a performer, electronic sound artist, underground researcher, folk technologist and one half of Baltimore’s seminal noise(s) outfit Nautical Almanac. Harper was raised in Michigan, where he started out by playing DIY punk-style shows with the likes of Scheme and Mini-Systems, helping to ignite the Hanson / Wolf Eyes / Andrew W.K total music movement of the 90s.

Bill Nace
Bill Nace is an artist and musician based in Western Massachusetts, USA. He’s one of the premiere avant-garde guitarists active today, with one of the most personal and unique palettes of sound ever to be culled from six electrified strings.

Adam Bohmnan & Pat Thomas (UK) & Sami Pekkola (FI) & Yoni Silver (IL)
For COoS - a one off collaboration from four doyens of improv mischief:
Adam Bohman has been operating on the outer fringes of experimental music for decades,
working with home-built instruments, found objects, tape cut-ups, collages, ink drawings and graphic scores. Favouring acoustic sounds over electronics, he explores the minute sonic tendrils coaxed from any number of non-musical instruments and objects. His performances can incorporate Fluxus japery, musique concrete, sound poetry and free improvisation.

Pat Thomas began playing piano at the age of eight, while studying classical music and listening to reggae. After seeing legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson on TV in the late 70s, he began to experiment with wider realms of sound and music, developing over time, a musical language that would embrace improvisation, jazz, new music, electronica and abstraction.
Sami Pekkola is a saxophonist and active member of the Finnish experimental music world. His early groups like Mohel and Hetero Skeleton created a unique link between the celebrated ‘new weird Finland’ and its almost non-existing free jazz scene. His sound with current bands like Taco Bells and Oaagaada remains as uncontrolled as ever.
Yoni Silver is a London based bass-clarinettist and multi-simultaneo-instrumentalist. He has had the good fortune to have been a member of the Hyperion Ensemble directed by Iancu Dumitrescu and the late Ana Maria Avram, which have introduced him to the sound of twenty five million years.

The Elks
The Elks are Liz Allbee, Kai Fagachinski, Billy Roisz and Marta Zappoli - four powerful
presences on the international experimental scene, each of whom has honed wholly original approaches and dynamics to their respective instruments. They performed for the first time together in Berlin in 2014. 'Perhaps from the experimental music scenes of Berlin and Vienna one might expect a rather reduced and elegant sound world, but these Elks have some other ideas in store, and don't mind to get their antlers a little dirty’ Soundohm

Beyt Al Tapes - Cycling for Electronic Raga
Brussels based cyclist-composer; pursuer of rudimentary vocal poetry, tape manipulation and analogue synthesis; explorer of the obsolete; likes crude sounds, pure sine waves and household objects, For COoS, Beyt Al Tapes will perform for tape machines, echoboxes, modular synthesis and the iconic Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra Max bicycle. ‘Meyreuis, Lozère, 26 june 1977. Warm, clouded weather. I unload my gear from my car and assemble my bike. Sitting on terraces tourists and residents look upon me. Non-cyclists. The void of those lives shocks me.’ Tim Crabbé, the cyclist.
