Ben Vince makes music purely with the saxophone, creating a collage of melodies, textures and rhythms, twisted and pitched, expanding the sound palette whilst stretching the formula with improvised live sets.
Since surfacing with his debut album in April this year on Blank Editions (responsible for recent output of Thurston Moore, Tomaga & Housewives), Vince continues with occasional radio shows on Radar Radio and NTS as well as gigs with Charles Hayward and upcoming artists in London's experimental music network.
Rupert Clervaux is a musician and writer, based in London. Since the 2012 dissolution of Sian Alice Group, of which he was a founder member, he has worked on numerous collaborative and solo projects––including two acclaimed LPs with Beatrice Dillon and the first two instalments of his own ‘Zibaldone of CVX’ series. The third instalment of that series is expected in early 2018, along with a solo-LP of poetry recitals set to music. In his work as a mix and mastering engineer he’s contributed to releases by some of the world’s leading improvisors, experimental and electronic musicians.
:: BROSHUDA ::
Broshuda is the musical alter-ego of Graphic Designer & Visual Artist Florian Koch. Cross-pollinating a wide textural range of influences, Koch ́s music incorporates elements of sound art, electroacoustic techniques, heavily processed ambient and field recording excursions, as well as more rhythmically oriented and beat-heavy pieces.Though kaleidoscopically varied, Koch ́s work is held together by a playful sense of experimentation and a willingness to explore new landscapes of sound through an experimental approach and applying varying production techniques to expand and further his already broad sonic palette.
