New lamps for old:

John Macedo is a sound artist from London. He has incorporated everything from acoustic instruments and environmental sound to analogue and computer synthesis into his recorded works, live performances and sound installations. He has a pluralistic approach which reveals the ephemeral and hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and intuitive ways. He performs solo and in collaboration with other musicians on modular synthesiser and custom-made software and electronics.

[Phil Julian and John Macedo have been collaborating on live performances and studio recordings since 2012 using dual modular synthesisers, electronics and computers.  "Bind" is their first full length recording, made available by Hideous Replica in 2016]

Gregory Büttner [computer, loudspeakers, resonating objects] lives and works as a musician and artist in Hamburg. Since 2000 his main focus is on sound art and electro-acoustic compositions. He performed at several festivals and concert series in Europe and China, composed music for dance and performance, radio, video and sound installations.

Luciano Maggiore [walkmans and speakers] lives and works in London. Musician in the field of electro-acoustic music, in recent years he has developed a strong interest in the mechanisms of sound diffusion, using speakers and several analogue and digital devices (walkmans, CD players, tape recorders) as main instruments. His interest is focused on the architectural and psycho-acoustic as well as dynamic and directional values of sound with a strong emphasis on fixed sounds.

Louie Rice: Electronic and acoustic systems - utilising the physicality of the medium, signal chain and spatial context to create disruptive audio material with a tendency towards a reductive aesthetic

David Stearn: Currently studying  an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, his practice works towards the continual investigation of the trace, the act and the humour of destruction as a means of creation.

Yoni Silver [Bass-clarinetist & multi-instrumentalist] sprang out of the Israeli experimental scene where he had been part of projects such as Primate Arena (with Alex Drool and Eran Sachs). As well as performing regularly as a soloist on (amplified/extended) bass clarinet and/or violin/voice/electronics. He is also a member of Hyperion Ensemble lead by Rumanian spectralists Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana Maria Avram, and of the German based LABOUR trio with Collin Hacklander and Farah Hatam.
