..is an electronic musician and multimedia artist from London whose work pushes the dynamics of sound system culture incorporating low frequency vibration, hacked code, and optisonic experiments. An unconventional artist in the turbulent realm of bass music, Spatial combines a preoccupation with emergent behaviour, rule based repetition and chaotic systems with an ability to shape dubbed out, cracked and reductive sonics into audible geometric form. Through textured intricate production, Spatial’s releases and live sets bring corporeal presence carved out with a minimalist’s scalpel.
Roberto Crippa is a London based sound artist, musician and designer.
Blending elements of music concrète, electronic composition, noise and drone music, Crippa's sonic practice functions as a self-contained universe that unnervingly transform the physical surroundings of the listener into visceral and immersive aural landscapes.
Using an ever evolving array of custom analogue oscillators, samplers and electroacoustic instruments, Crippa's performances both brutally and delicately sweep across the entire audible frequency range: from the lowest sub tones to the highest pitches, his work is rich in contrast as walls of sound awash with opaque noise and subterranean thrums collide with shimmering organic tones and sequenced sine wave constructions.
