Anne Gillis
We're very pleased to welcome to COOS the legendary French artist, composer and performer.
Gillis emerged (as Manon Anne Gillis and Devil's Picnic) from the Parisian experimental scene of the 80s, her dense, intricate and intimate recordings and performances finding a place on the very margins of minimal synth and post-industrial sound.
Her five albums featured modular synth pulses woven with cut-up techniques and voice manipulation, and concrete bodily sounds sculpted into miniatures that Gillis hoped would turn loudspeakers into stethoscopes. They explored realms of repetition - taking the smallest of impulses to their logical end-points.
Live, Gillis dedicated her work to curves, volutes, roundnesses, undulations, rolling-ups and rotations, her visceral ritual performances exploring the body and its societal codes.
After a lengthy hiatus, Gillis has returned with new work and a series of celebrated performances in Tokyo, London, New York and France.

Áine O'Dwyer and Graham Lambkin
O'Dwyer and Lambkin are multi-disciplinary artists whose work explores the nexus between music, text, illustration, theater, and the dissolution of the audience/performer divide.
O'Dwyer and Lambkin came together in New York, December 2016 for a collaborative performance in association with Blank Forms. The pair have continued to collaborate on multiple projects, in various locations. 2018 marked their first collaborative album, Green Ways, which gives voice to their documentary-styled performances for the listener.
Both individually and in collaboration they have explored the latent potential of acoustical space, transforming both fantastical and mundane environments into aesthetic centrums of possibility.

Chie Mukai & Richard Youngs
Chie Mukai & Richard Youngs will both perform short solo sets before performing together as a duo for the first time. YEAA!

Chie Mukai is a composer, musician and master improviser from Osaka, Japan. She's the founder of the underground improv-folk group Ché-SHIZU, one of the most original and mystifying groups to ever emerge from Japan's musical underground. Mukai became involved in improvisation and free music in 1975, when she joined the East Bionic Symphonia group under the leadership of Fluxus violinist-composer Takehisa Kosugi, at the Biggako Art School of Tokyo. Her primary instruments are the bowed Chinese er-hu, alongside piano and percussion.

Richard Youngs has been involved with music for most of his life. He discovered the power of the art form by thumping the family piano as an angry 5 year old. In the intervening 45 years he has attempted to harness the same experimental, naive, playful power in his live performances and in all of his 140 releases. This creative openness has led him to explore different musical genres. He is classically trained in piano and guitar, but musically he grew up in the shadow cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the independent D.I.Y. ethic is at his core.

“Imagine Richard Youngs as the junior member of a cabal of prolific and puritanical English musician--mystics, including The Fall’s Mark E Smith, Van der Graaf Generator’s Peter Hammill, Martin Carthy and The Clangers’ composer Vernon Elliot, and still his nature will elude you” - Stewart Lee, Sunday Times.

Alvarius B.
Alan Bishop (AKA Alvarius B.) is a founding member of Seattle's genre-defying Sun City Girls, whose career spanned 27 years and over fifty releases. His work in Sun City Girls, with Richard Bishop and Charles Gocher, alone stands as a testament to his fearless exploration of the outer reaches of improvisation and composition.
