Trans/Human
Bildhauerische Musik eines umherwandernden Duos aus Großbritannien. Handys, Radio, Kassetten, Aufnahmen aus der Umwelt und präparierte Instrumente kombiniert zu einer ritualisierten visuellen und akustischen Erfahrung.

Using several noise making devices and techniques in their performances, including mobile phones, radio, cassette tape, prepared electric guitar, processed drums, strobe lighting, contact microphones, field recordings and feedback systems, this duo’s interests lie within the physical act of music making and its relationship to the environment and audience. They create ritualised sonic and visual experiences in their improvised shows. Their latest LP, The (Un)Expected, recorded at Audacious Space, Sheffield, came out on The Audacious Art Experiment in March 2014.

In March 2013 and June 2014, they headed out to the west coast of Scotland and through the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Croatia in the Audacious Mobile Research Library (A.M.R.L.). They roamed in their motor home, collecting rogue radio frequencies and playing a number of isolated and impromptu performances.
