Geoffrey Breeze:
Late, late last Christmas night, an ancient beatnik appeared in a vision to Geoffrey Breeze offering the possibility of the pointless life of a poet. Swiftly surrendering, he started scribbling. His work surveys love lost and found, career, criminality, and the glories of humanity, from disco dancing to erectile dysfunction, from Bath to Brixton, all coyly observed through the thick bifocal lens of a pair of designer spectacles.


Matthew Grigg:
Matthew Grigg, (guitar and amplifier) is an improvisor and concert organiser. Collaborators have included Erhard Hirt, Dominic Lash, Colin Webster and EP/64.

Robin Foster:
Is a musician and performer based in Bristol, UK. His work encompasses ideas relating to performance art, improvisation, physicality, sound art and noise music.

Seth Guy:
Seth Guy appropriates, reconfigures and juxtaposes materials to create playful performative works which explore the discourse between ear and eye. Influenced by his interests in experimental fiction, art, and music, Seth's research investigates the intersections of shared language, of memory, and imagination, in which the acts of listening and visualising are investigated. Often collaborating and devising projects of a participatory and experiential nature, Seth makes both sonic art and visual art - sound compositions, performances, and collage - work which is often humorous, and occasionally disquieting. // //
