CORE OF THE COALMAN
Jorge Boehringer studied composition under Fred Frith, Pauline Oliveiros and Alvin Curran. He served an apprenticeship in legendary bluegrass noisers Caroliner, and now plays massive minimalism under the Core of the Coalman moniker, utilising viola and devices to create an intriguing and engulfing pattern music; shifting rhythms and timbre, and constant MASTERY.
Brighton resident and former hip-hop producer Ian Murphy sculpts an exquisitely atmospheric drone from his Akai; like a swan carved from concrete, brought to life and swooping around the cathedral. One of the finest 'noise' proponents operating in the UK, with a unique take on the drone that it is psychedelic and engagingly nuanced.
Serfs is the all too seldomly seen duo of Jon Collin and Tom Settle, the best Manchester band of the last however-many years. The playing seems to fall between John Fahey, Loren Conners, The Dead C and Crazy Horse, while remaining far enough from all points to inhabit a space all of its own, and can contort itself into many shapes; from lugubrious drone through avant-folk and wild psych to Chicago Soul.
A new duo of Stuart Arnot and Luke Hall, seen previously performing as a trio with Phil Minton in London's Cafe Oto. Expect mong-mouthed sound poetry, spiced up with dysfunctional tape noise and electronics.
