Three duo performances by Louie Rice & Yoni Silver, Lee Fraser & John Macedo, and Enrico Malatesta & Luciano Maggiore.
Enrico Malatesta is a multidisciplinary artist active in the field of experimental research placed between sound art, music and performance; his practice explores the relations between sound, space and movements with particular attention to the multimaterial possibilities of the percussion instruments. His research path is characterized by a strong emphasis on the ability to produce multiple information with simple actions, the motion and definition of the experience of listening and sustainability of the presence of the performer.
Louie Rice: Electronic and acoustic systems - utilising the physicality of the medium, signal chain and spatial context to create disruptive audio, performance and installation.
Bass-clarinetist and multi-instrumentalist Yoni Silver’s activities include hyper-spectral adventures with Iancu Dumitrescu's Hyperion Ensemble; a bass clarinet and percussion duo with Steve Noble; a bass clarinet/violin and possessed vocals duo with Sharon Gal; Denis D’or with Grundik Kasyansky and Tom Wheatley; bass clarinet and drums duo with Crystabel Riley, and solo performances on amplified bass clarinet.
He has appeared on labels such as Creative Sources, Confront Recordings, Wasted Capital, Chocolate Monk and Edition Modern.
Lee Fraser is a British composer whose work blends aspects of acousmatic theory with the compositional methods of computer music. His live performances employ a range of digital synthesis processes and a structural rationale that are characteristic of his fixed pieces, a selection of which comprises the Dark Camber album, published by Entr'acte in 2014.
John Macedo is a sound artist and performer from London. He has incorporated everything from acoustic instruments and environmental sound to analogue and computer synthesis into recorded works, live performances and sound installations. He has a pluralistic approach which reveals and highlights the hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and intuitive ways.
He performs live solo and has collaborated with artists and musicians such as Phil Julian, John Butcher, Graham Dunning, Tom White, Michael Speers, Artur Vidal, Adam Bohman, John Edwards, Lee Fraser, Sue Lynch, Yoni Silver, Steve Noble, Cath Roberts and more. He has had work released by Hideous Replica, Sound Holes, Beartowns Records and a releases small run and object editions on his own label, The Black Plume Editions. He also organises the monthly experimental and improvised music concert series SOLO:DUO:TRIO at the OTO Project Space.
Luciano Maggiore (Palermo 1980) lives and works in London.
Active musician in the field of electroacoustic 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 principal instruments. His interest is focused on the architectural and psychoacoustic as well as dynamic and directional values of sound with a strong emphasis on fixed sounds.
His works are published by Balloon & Needle, Boring Machines, Consumer Waste, Hideous Replica, Palustre, Senufo editions, 1000Füssler, Triscele Registrazioni and Tulip records.
